If you are from out of town and decide to join the team, how will you survive and thrive in a new town for 5 months?
You will be billeted for $750 per month (including room and board) in the home of a local family, close to where the school is. All families are registered.
The school program runs from Monday to Thursday, from 9 am to 3 pm. If you’re close to Powell River, you can visit home from Thursday evening till Sunday and be back for Monday.
If not, Powell River offers beautiful areas for hiking, fishing, and just hanging out. You’ll also find a good library, tennis courts, jogging track, a full-amenities swimming pool near the school, and more.
Remember: You are in a 5-month course. It is up to you to decide how good your projects will be. They will represent you on your journey after the course. You can spend lots of time working on your assignments, but we also encourage you to take advantage of the recreational and cultural opportunities that coastal life in British Columbia offers.
