Wrapping up your time in West Vancouver

We hope you have had a fabulous time in West Vancouver during the 2020-2021 school year and have made memories and friendships that will last a lifetime! The International Programs team has a few important reminders for you.

Please see the Departures section below for Arrivals information

Returning home and flight details

Students who are returning home should book their flights as soon as possible and ideally should leave around June 25th. All short-term students (not returning for the 2021-2022 school year) must be on a flight home by June 30th, 2021 as your program (i.e. education, homestay accommodation, medical insurance, etc. ends on or before June 30th).

The Homestay Coordinator (homestay@wvschools.ca) needs to have your flight details for your return flight home. Please fill out this form as soon as possible: https://westvancouverschools.ca/international/student-departure-june-2021/

Report cards and attendance letter

Our office will email a copy of your report card to you, your family, and your agent. We do this for all secondary international students. 

Validation/Notarization of Report Cards: In addition to receiving an emailed copy of their report card, students from Mexico, Brazil, Spain and Italy will receive a validated/notarized report card via their agent by priority mail. For more information, please email Dona at dwang@wvschools.ca.

Attendance letter: If you require a letter stating that you attended school in West Vancouver, please email this request to Dona at dwang@wvschools.ca

Expectations

Homestay

Curfew and rules are still in place until you leave.

If you are leaving Canada permanently, remember to return any keys, take all your belongings with you, and make sure your living spaces are left clean and tidy. Your homestay families will be sad to see you leave! Leaving a thank you card for your homestay is always a nice gesture.

School

Communicate and participate in your learning until your departure. Don’t forget to say goodbye to your counsellor and teachers. Please follow your school’s instructions regarding the return of school materials and textbooks.

Graphing Calculators

Any students who borrowed a graphing calculator or computer from our International Programs Office will need to return them to our office to obtain their refund before they permanently leave Canada. Please call or email the office to book an appointment to meet with us (604.981.1058 or international.reception@wvschools.ca).

Medical Insurance

We hope you have enjoyed your experience in Canada and in particular at West Vancouver Schools!
