French Immersion

The regular French program of 30 minutes of core French daily is available to all grades. The French Immersion program for Grade 5 to Grade 8 students contains 50 % French programming and 50 % English programming. Subjects that are taught in the French language include French, Social Studies (History/Geography for Grades 7 and 8), Health, Physical Education, Visual Arts, Drama, Dance and Music.  At this time, Palmer Rapids Public School does not offer a French Immersion Program.

French Immersion is intended for Anglophone families. Parents/guardians and students do not have to speak French at home. Students enrolled in French Immersion benefit from strong organizational skills as information is often presented at a faster pace. A keen motivation to learn French is also beneficial.
