WELS Coordinator’s Message:

I am very excited and honored to welcome each and every one of you to our WELS program at Westfield Education. We are anticipating a successful and rewarding year, and I look forward to working with our dedicated Westfield staff and parents to foster effective and practical learning for students to succeed in today’s globalized world.

The WELS Student and Parent Handbook is a framework for collaborative work as a school community, and provides pertinent information on our expectations, processes, and procedures.

I look forward to working together with the Westfield staff and board members as we embark on the start of a new and exciting program.

Wishing you a wonderful learning experience!

At the beginning of my journey here at Westfield, I was filled with doubt and a lot of nerves. However, the enthusiastic teachers and staff, along with the energetic students helped me to adapt to this community quickly. I enjoy and appreciate my time here. Westfield is my home away from home.


Westfield Secondary is a great school to me. The students are friendly, and I can make friends with people from different countries. The teachers here are great, they are always here to listen and help us with any problems we come across. I would recommend Westfield Secondary to anyone interested in coming here!


I feel like the staff and teachers are friends. They are caring towards my study and life. They have helped build my confidence day by day, and improve my English which helps me adjust to local life. My parents are so proud of me and its all thanks to Westfield!


I came to Canada being excited but also feeling very nervous. I did not have any confidence in speaking English, but the teaching at Westfield help me to rebuild my confidence and has motivated me to improve my learning.


It’s been a few months now that I have been studying at Westfield. From the first day I came, Westfield made me feel very welcomed. Everyone is very friendly and communicative. The teachers are extremely caring and kind, and they really want us to succeed. Westfield has made me feel at home!
