Countless opportunities for weekend activities exist in the local community as well as other parts of Vancouver Island and BC. Weekend schedules are posted well in advance so that students can plan which activities they will choose. Options could include sports, trips to the mall for necessities, excursions around Vancouver Island and to Vancouver, hiking, beach visits, museums, karaoke, cooking classes, etc.
A GNS family host program is available for long weekends and some holidays. This is designed to help students integrate with the community and to get a Canadian family experience.
