Student Exchange Program – Host Opportunity

Exchange Student

Global Partners Institute, an non profit student exchange program is seeking warm caring families to host male and female Japanese High School students attending William Aberhart High School in Calgary Alberta, starting in Sept 2018.

Local support is provided and families are paid a monthly stipend to offset costs of food and utilities. Families must be 2 or more related people and clear English must be spoken in the homes as these are English immersion students. Interested families can fill out an application at http://gpicanada.com/homestays/host-family-application/

Sunday Skate & Soul!

BTCA Skate Soul Sundays Facebook Event

Join us for free public family ice skating every Sunday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon at the brand new Banff Trail Community Centre Outdoor Rink (at least until the ice melts, anyway). If you haven’t seen the rink yet, it’s on the corner of 20 Ave and 20 St NW, right behind the community centre.
There will be free coffee for the parents and hot chocolate for the kiddos (bring a mug, if you remember). Every Sunday will also be soundtracked with classic soul music by the likes of Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, and The Temptations. Just a heads up that no hockey equipment will be allowed on the ice during the open skate.
It doesn’t matter whether you just turned 1 or 100 years old, grab a pair of skates and swing down this Sunday (and the one after that…) for this free public event (no community membership required). See you there!
