Numbers up in school district

There are 130 new international students joining the returning students for a total of 500 full-time enrolled in Langley schools.

International students come from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, Vietnam and, for the first time in a long time — Spain, Italy, Thailand and Turkey.

The students had an orientation day on Aug. 30.

The students started their day at Langley Secondary then set off for a visit to Dr. Sun Yet Sen Gardens, Gastown, the Olympic Torch, Stanley Park and English Bay.

International students stay with host families in Langley.

Because they pay to attend school in Langley, the district depends on their annual fees as a big helper to their budget.
