years of hard work and tireless dedication, The PTSD International
Student Program regretfully announces the retirement of
our Homestay Facilitator, Kathy Brydon. Kathy was
our first and only Homestay Facilitator starting our Homestay
Program in 1998. Students, homestay families and
many folks in the PTSD community are well aware of what
Kathy has meant to this program and how much she will
be missed by everyone. Our Homestay Program would
not have become what it is today without the injection
of Kathy's family values and her sheer determination that
each student should enjoy success and happiness in our
program. Kathy has created a Homestay Program that
includes the community's most generous and welcoming families
many of whom have hosted our students year after year.
We thank Kathy from the bottom of our hearts and wish
her many years of happiness and good health in her next
adventure. She will be missed by all of us.
Welcome Our New Homestay Facilitator
are pleased to welcome Julie Banfield, new Homestay Facilitator,
to our team. Julie has been with the Pembina Trails
School Division for over 8 years, including time with
the International Student Program as Homestay Aide.
Julie is also an experienced homestay family in our program.
She brings many skills and family values to the International
Student Program and we are looking forward to having
her on our team.
