Students officially head back to school Thursday.
Both elementary and high school students are at school in the Regina Public and Catholic school divisions.
Twylla West with the Regina Catholic School Division says the schools have a new theme this year.
It’s called “go make a difference” and the theme focusses on loving your neighbour as you would yourself.
West says things as simple as helping another classmate will be encouraged.
The Public School Division is focused on its new program called Attendance Matters, which aims to have students attendance matters way up from last year.
Terry Lazarou with Regina Public Schools says they’re also introducing a new program called Attendance Matters, in the hopes to have attendance numbers up from last year.
Lazarou says their enrollment numbers are up about 500 from last year, taking the total to about 23-thousand students.
