About Us

With deep gratitude and respect, we are honoured to be learning and unlearning on the ancestral and unceded lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) & səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation).

Trafalgar Elementary School provides educational instruction for students from Kindergarten to Grade 7, with an enrollment of approximately 470 students. Nearly two-thirds of the student body participate in French Immersion programs, including Early French Immersion (K-7) and Late French Immersion (grade 6-7). The remaining one-third of students are in the English stream. The inaugural cohort of grade 7 Late French Immersion students has completed their final year of elementary school in June 2023, having commenced the program in September 2021.

While the French Immersion segment exhibits stability, with the majority of students having English as their home or first language, around 60% of those in the English stream are either in the process of learning or have learned English as a second or additional language. This subgroup primarily comprises Mandarin speakers, with some students fluent in Cantonese and a variety of other languages. Notably, a significant portion of the parent community in Vancouver faces language barriers, with many having limited proficiency in English. Despite this, Trafalgar School boasts a robust parent community that collaborates closely with the school staff to enrich the overall educational experience of students.

Trafalgar is dedicated to fostering inclusivity, and a key objective is to celebrate the diverse backgrounds within the student body while nurturing a strong sense of community within the school premises.
