A Safe Harbour

A Safe Harbour: Supporting Students, Parents, and Staff
The mission of A Safe Harbour is to help students, parents, and staff cope with the challenges, and maximize the opportunities, inherent in the experience of international relocation and cross-cultural mobility.
What is A Safe Harbour?
Every fall, and periodically throughout the year, ASH welcomes new students, families and teachers into our international community and School. At the same time our current community "refreshes" for the new school year; students are faced with different classes, making new friends, learning new routines. In face of all this "newness" it is easy to get caught in the culture shock of adapting to a new situation and "being new" in general.* Students, parents and teachers alike can feel disorientated and lonely, experience grieving for those they left behind or have moved away, or face cross cultural confusion, misunderstandings or conflicts within their new learning situations and living environments.
