Students from Cafam School in Columbia will attend various schools throughout Livingstone Range School Division as part of an international exchange program. International Home-stay Coordinator Julie Hutchinson said this is the second year the program is running. Seven students are here for a full semester, and an additional 11 are coming for a one month stay. "I think it is a great opportunity for the sharing of cultures," said Hutchinson.
At this point the students come to Canada but the school system does not send any Canadian students to Columbia. The guest students share their culture with the students of the school they are attending, and will learn about Canada in a rural setting. The host schools are JT Foster in Nanton, Willow Creek Composite High in Claresholm, Matthew Halton High in Pincher Creek, and Crowsnest Consolidated High in Coleman. Students Emmanuel Silva and Lev Ramírez will be spending a semester in Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass, respectively.
