Two chances for French immersion info

Chilliwack parents invited to attend information sessions about late French immersion

Two information sessions have been planned for parents interested in enrolling their children in late French immersion in Chilliwack.

The first meeting is being held Monday, Jan. 19 at Strathcona elementary from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The second will be held at Sardis elementary school on Wednesday, Jan. 21 from 6:30 pm. to 9 p.m.

The information sessions will only cover late French immersion, in advance of the opening of the application process. The application process is open from Jan. 26 to Feb. 6, and is done online at www.sd33.bc.ca.

Late French Immersion is for students entering grade 6 in the 2015/16 school year. Parents are welcome to attend either session.

Almost 500 students are enrolled in French immersion in Chilliwack this year, up slightly with the new addition of an early French immersion program operating at Cheam elementary. There, 50 students are in Kindergarten and Grade One.
