Welcome to Arthur A. Leach! We are a diverse community where our students speak many different languages. We welcome our growing number of newcomers and international students each year.

Newcomer Family Reception
If your family has recently arrived in Canada (within the past six months), please follow these steps to register your child at school:

  • Contact the International Student Program office at 204.488.1767 Ext. 1225.
  • Book an appointment to confirm your address and immigration status.

When parents register their child in Pembina Trails, they can expect that we will assess each student and provide instructional supports based on their individual needs

English as an Additional Language (EAL) Program:

Our school is dedicated to the learning needs of students who speak English as an Additional Language (EAL) or dialect through EAL programming which supports success in school by developing:

  • vocabulary
  • language skills
  • inter-cultural understanding
  • learning strategies

At Arthur A. Leach, our program also provides:

  • Opportunities for language learners to understand and experience Canadian culture, school activities and special events
  • Providing opportunities for EAL learners to gather and connect
  • Facilitating the use of technology in language learning
  • English Language Acquisition Plans (ELAPS) are in place to facilitate appropriate programming for each English Language Learner


Interpreters are available for families who require support when meeting with teachers. Our website also has a button to translate the content into many different languages.

We hope to see you soon!
