French Immersion

Early French Immersion

On-line applications for students entering Kindergarten will be accepted from 8:30 am on January 8th, 2018 through to 12:00 pm on January 12th, 2018 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 12th can be made directly at Cheam Elementary. If you wish to register a child at any other grade level, please contact Cheam Elementary directly. The program will be enrolling students up to Grade Five in September 2018. Please note, Kindergarten and Grade One students do not require previous French experience.
