English Language Development (ELD)

    English Language 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.​
