It’s time for Bodwell students to “get rEal”.

Saturday Enrichment, or “Saturday E”, is set of engaging and hands-on courses which afford all Bodwell students opportunities to expand their learning to broader areas of “real-world” knowledge and to further strengthen their English language skills, toward the aim of studying in university and pursuing ambitious careers.

Starting this fall, in addition to our regular academic course offerings, Bodwell will give students even more diverse and real-world learning opportunities in the form of 3-hour weekly sessions on Saturdays from 9:35 am to 12:50 pm. Many creative learning and community involvement projects will allow students to further improve English and prepare for academic and career plans. By the end of the term, students will showcase their new skills and experience in an enrichment fair.

All Saturday Enrichment course offerings are now ready to go with a unique team of instructors eager to meet students. Instructions come from various professional fields, from business to fashion design and beyond. Many instructors are also specialists in helping students improve English language skills.

Students’ achievement in this Sat E block will be reported in final academic reports.

The first Saturday session will be September 10… so get rEady to get rEal!
