French Immersion
French Immersion offers students the opportunity to become bilingual in a second language. It starts in Grade 4 and continues through secondary school. The best French Immersion success comes from students . . .

Bonjour mon nom est Mathew and je veux te dire pourquoi je suis en immersion française. Hi my name is Mathew and I want to tell you why I’m in French Immersion . . . it’s because learning to speak French will open so many doors in the future! Speaking French can help to get a good job or be accepted into college or university. And, learning a second language is a lot of fun!

Salut, je m’appelle Angelique et je suis dans la cinquième annee de l’immersion de francais. Hi, my name is Angelique, and here’s why I enjoy French Immersion. When I started in Grade 4, I met a lot of new friends who also enjoy learning to speak, read and write in another language. We do fun learning activities, games and songs to help us learn. We even travel to French speaking areas of Canada for school trips to help to improve our French. I really enjoy French Immersion and know that you will, too.

French Immersion is begins in Grade 4 at Bayside Public School and Harry J. Clarke Public School.
