Development at BCSIS supports students with a primary home language
other than English. The staff at BCSIS values children’s bilingual
skills while working on Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing, in
English. Along with learning discrete literacy skills, in small group
settings, children develop oral and written language through art,
storytelling, music, drama, reading and writing. An extension of the
BCSIS Arts Integrated curriculum is provided to support students
academically in their classroom.
