Students from Refugee Backgrounds – A Guide for Teachers and Schools

Posted on: September 17, 2022

The Students from Refugee Backgrounds Guide provides you with some general information about the refugee experiences, offers insight into potential psychological effects for those who have experienced violence, and describes how their escape from conflict and refugee experience can impact their transition, from a life of instability to a life of new normalcy in a new country and new culture.

The guide suggests ways all members of your school community can help ease a student’s transition into life in British Columbia and make them and their family feel welcome and safe.
