Community Forums Addressing Growth of French Immersion in LRSD

February 6, 2017

In January, LRSD held two French Immersion Community Forums at Collège Béliveau and Collège Jeanne-Sauvé. The forums provided the opportunity for staff and parents to discuss the immense growth of French Immersion in the Division and helped to provide an accurate picture of what French Immersion currently looks like across LRSD

A total of 264 parents came together at Collège Béliveau to engage in conversation of what the future will hold for French Immersion programming. Collège Jeanne-Sauvé also saw 233 parents attend for the evening, with MLA Rochelle Squires of Riel, MLA James Teitsma of Radisson and St. Vital City Councillor Brian Mayes all joining the conversation as well. 

Across Manitoba, we have seen the most significant growth in our French Immersion population, with one-third of all students in the Division currently enrolled in French Immersion. That number is projected to reach 40 per cent in the near future. 

Since 2013, the Division has reconfigured several schools to ensure that we have space for all of the students enrolled in French Immersion. We have also proposed upgrades to Collège Béliveau and Collège Jeanne-Sauvé to appropriately accommodate the growing population. 

We are grateful and appreciate the parents who joined us to share their stories and thoughts on our collective journey for French Immersion programming. 

For more information about the evening, see the presentations from Collège Jeanne Sauvé and Collège Béliveau.
