​A Warm Welcome 

     Kindergarten and Grade 1 students at BES wanted to give a warm welcome 
to the children of Syrian refugee families. Mr. Isaac Jones, with the support of 
Mrs. Dianne Keith and Ms. Heather Folkins, had their students create 
Welcome to Canada cards containing personal messages. Officials and 
volunteers of the Syrian Refugee Response program of the Greater 
Saint John YMCA's Newcomer Connections were touched by the 
initiative. And, the smiling faces of the Syrian children in the photo 
show their great joy at receiving the cards.
