What are the Short Term Programs?
The STP’s are a weekend program provided for students who are blind or visually impaired enrolled in schools throughout Ontario. Students stay for the weekend in the residence at W Ross Macdonald School free of charge and are provided with meals and snacks. Each weekend provides a positive and supportive environment that allows students make lasting friendships while socializing and learning appropriate academic life skills.
