Keystone June Newsletter
Where has the time gone? We have officially reached our final month of the 2021/22 school year!
This month is so bittersweet for the students and staff at Keystone International Schools; while we look forward to long awaited (and well deserved) summer vacation ahead, it is almost time to say goodbye to another school year.
We have had such a wonderful year, full of adventures, learning & growing! We are beyond proud of all of the hard work of our students for all of their continuous hard work and determination over the last 10 months.
We look forward to spending the next few weeks celebrating all of your accomplishments, and making the most of the final days together.

Quote of the Month!

High Park Field Trip
This month, some of our Senior ESL students took a trip to High Park! This was a great opportunity for the students to get to know their beautiful city a little better, by exploring one of it’s popular attractions.
The goal for this field trip was to help the students learn more about Toronto by interviewing people at the park about their experience living in the city. This was also a great way for the class to practice their english and conversational skills.
Book Recommendation for June!
We Have Always Been Here
By: Samra Habib
When her family came to Canada as refugees, Samra encountered a whole new host of challenges: bullies, racism, the threat of poverty, and an arranged marriage. Backed into a corner, her need for a safe space–in which to grow and nurture her creative, feminist spirit–became dire. The men in her life wanted to police her, the women in her life had only shown her the example of pious obedience, and her body was a problem to be solved.
So begins an exploration of faith, art, love, and queer sexuality, a journey that takes her to the far reaches of the globe to uncover a truth that was within her all along. A triumphant memoir of forgiveness and family, both chosen and not, We Have Always Been Here is a rallying cry for anyone who has ever felt out of place and a testament to the power of fearlessly inhabiting one’s truest self.
