The Welcoming Syrian Students & Families Info Sheet, developed by School Mental Health-Assist (Ontario, Canada), outlines the importance of a culturally competent school community, and practices that staff can undertake to help create a welcoming school environment for Syrian newcomers.

The info-sheet covers examples of how staff can create welcoming school and classroom environments, signs of adjustment difficulty in incoming students, and how students with adjustment problems can be supported to foster positive mental health and well-being.
