French as a Second Language
Grade 1 French Immersion is at capacity at all sites. We will no longer be adding students to the Fall 2019 wait list.
Lottery Registration for students entering Grade 1 in September 2020 will open in January 2020.
Students will communicate and interact with growing confidence in French, one of Canada’s official languages, while developing the knowledge, skills, and perspectives they need to participate fully as citizens in Canada and in the world.
In all French as a second language programs, students realize the vision of the FSL curriculum as they
- Use French to communicate and interact effectively in a variety of social settings;
- Learn about Canada, its two official languages, and other cultures;
- Appreciate and acknowledge the interconnectedness and interdependence of the global community;
- Be responsible for their own learning, as they work independently and in groups;
- Use effective language learning strategies;
- Become lifelong language learners for personal growth and for active participation as world citizens.
The French Immersion lottery is now closed. Please contact Jennifer.Kruithof@wcdsb.ca if you have any questions.
