French Immersion

Early French Immersion

On-line applications for students entering Kindergarten and Grade One will be accepted from 8:00 am on January 3rd, 2017 through to 12:00 pm on January 6th, 2017 at www.sd33.bc.ca. Please register your Kindergarten child at your catchment area school prior to applying on-line, as placement in the Immersion program is not guaranteed. If the number of applications exceeds the number of spaces available, a lottery system for selection will be used, within the parameters of our Selection Process (under review).

Applications after January 6th can be made directly at Cheam Elementary. If you are wanting to register a child at any other grade level, please contact Cheam Elementary directly. The program will be enrolling students up to Grade Four in September 2017. Please note, Kindergarten and Grade One students do not require previous French experience.
