This top achievement level is attainable through our immersion program in which French is not only one half of the medium in which subjects are taught, but also the means of communication in that classroom. Note that students striving to attain this level may not need to have Bilingual parents, but they are likely to need opportunities to interact with the French-speaking peers through exchanges, summer camps, travel, or additional experiences.

     

    The 50-50 French Immersion Program is designed for students who want to master English as their mother tongue and develop French as a second language. This program provides the student with half day instruction, English as the medium, and the other half instruction with French as the medium, in an effort to encourage effective us of both official languages. Please note that communication with the home, for this program, is in English.

    PREAMBLE

      St. John Bosco is a Catholic School which believes that all students are special gifts of God and require an opportunity to grow in a school environment which is permeated with the love of Jesus Christ. We believe that all students have a right to develop their individual talents and skills and that they are entitled to the guidance necessary to help them realize their potential.

      It is necessary then that there be some basic rules of conduct which is not cluttered by inappropriate behaviours, distractions from learning, or unnecessary tensions. For this purpose, this code of behaviour is published as a guide to help us provide the best learning environment for all pupils. It is imperative that parents, pupils and students adhere to the basic rules found here-in and that all recognise the necessity for such a code.
