Many thanks to Ms. Moloney’s class for doing a school grounds clean up!  They volunteered to go out after recess and pick up garbage (don’t worry- they had gloves:).  Look at this goofy group.  Thanks for taking care of our school.

French Immersion

Early French Immersion

Students who opt for Early Immersion usually enter the program in Kindergarten and continue their French studies through to grade twelve. In Grade 12, they receive a ‘Double Dogwood’ (a bilingual graduation certificate). Students may also begin the program in Grade 1. Please visit the French Immersion – Kindergarten page for complete details regarding registration.

Late French Immersion

Registration for 2021/2022: January 25-29

Students who choose late immersion will enter the French program in Grade 6 at École John Stubbs Memorial School. In Grade 8, late immersion students will merge with the students who enrolled in early immersion.

Parents can register online or in-person at their neighbourhood school. If registering online, please select Late French Immersion as your preference. Parents who wish to register in person must do so at École John Stubbs Memorial School.

As this is a popular program, parents are encouraged to register as close as possible to the opening of registration.

Visit the French Immersion page to see a list of SD62 schools that offer French Immersion as well as more information about French in SD62.
