Language used at FrancoSud
Students evolve in an environment where the language used is French. Thus, the official working language of FrancoSud and its schools is French. For this reason, all meetings, written communications and reports on student progress are in French. However, individual meetings concerning a student can be done in French or in English.
In the intent of Section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which is to ensure the vitality of Francophone minority communities, and in accordance with its restorative aim, the school board may admit to its schools:
- Children whose parents and grandparents are francophone and want them to reintegrate Francophone culture and identity. These may be parents who have not had the opportunity to access Francophone education.
- Children of Francophone parents who wish to maintain the French language, culture and Francophone identity of their children. For example, immigrants whose first language learned and still understood is French.
For the registration of an exceptional case student, please send your application to the school which you are interested in.
