We are very pleased to be able to offer a Late French Immersion Program for up to sixty students entering Grade 6 in the 2019-2020 school year. All students who have successfully completed Grade 5 and are residents in the Kootenay Lake District are eligible. The Program is located at Trafalgar Middle School for Grades 6-8, and continues for Grades 9-12 at LV Rogers Secondary School.
Parents, guardians and students who may be interested in pursuing a French Immersion educational program are invited to an Information Session on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 6:30 PM (PST) at the SD 8 (Kootenay Lake) Board Office at 570 Johnstone Road, Nelson, BC. We highly encourage students to attend this information session.
The purpose of this session will be to share information about the program and the application process. We recognize that not all interested families will be able to attend, so up-to-date information will be available online.
Because the Late French Immersion Program is limited to sixty students, a process of application is necessary.
