Late French Immersion: Gr 6-7
Elementary Late French Immersion is offered at:
- Trafalgar Elementary (Grades 6 -7)
- Douglas Elementary (Grades 6 -7)
- Laura Secord Elementary (Grades 6-7)
In grade 6, 100% of the BC curriculum is taught in French (emphasis is on oral French).
In grade 7, English Language Arts are reintroduced while other subjects continue to be taught in French.
Students in grade 5 may apply for admission to grade 6 Late French Immersion. Applicants are welcome to apply directly to any of the 3 Elementary schools offering Late French Immersion for the 2022/2023 school year. After the January 31st application closing day, all those who applied will have their names entered into a draw to determine who will be offered available seats at each location. Families will then be contacted regarding offers for placement at each site for which their name is drawn.
Please note that due to the nature and pace of the program, students will not be admitted to the Late French Immersion program after the second week of instruction.
Grade 1-7 District Choice Program applications are submitted to schools directly through a paper form. The form is linked in the District Choice Programs section or our Elementary Programs page: https://www.vsb.bc.ca/page/26694/elementary-programs
