Le français. . .c'est magnifique!
École Campbelltown is proud to offer a single track French Immersion program for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. Kindergarten students receive all instruction in French. Students in Grade K-2 are taught all subjects in French, starting grade three all subjects are in French with the exception of English language arts which is scheduled on a daily basis.
Our school is unique in that it is entirely devoted to French Immersion. This offers us the opportunity to immerse students in a French environment with announcements, assemblies and instruction being delivered almost entirely in French. Students are likely to hear staff and peers speaking French in the hallways as well as on the playground. This constant exposure to French is crucial in helping the students to develop their French language skills.
We also offer a variety of French cultural activities throughout the year such as shucking corn during our épluchette de blé d'Inde in September. During a week in March, our school celebrates Semaine de la Francophonie. Throughout the week the students engage in activities that celebrate French such as French musicians, plays and cultural performances. Students spend the week reflecting on the joys of learning French. Our Grade 6 students also attend a French camp at the end of the year as part of our special cultural events.
At École Campbelltown, French is fun!
