What? A bilingual French-English program that covers language arts, maths, social studies, the sciences, the arts and physical education. Students are supported as they learn French, English or both. Children acquire the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in middle school.
Where? Children will spend half of their week in a French-language classroom and half of their week in an English-language classroom. They spend some of their time in grade-level groups and some of their time in multi-age groups.
How? Math, language arts and language classes take place every morning. Students that need language support are pulled from native-level language arts classes. In the afternoon, students work on transdisciplinary projects that allow them to develop their subject-area knowledge, analytical and social skills.
Why? Children to continue to develop their language skills and learn more about who they are and how the world works. As they understand who they are, they realise that others are different and learn to value difference. Children are given increasing agency and responsibility to prepare them for middle school.
