Thank you for your interest in the Extended French Program at St. Philip School! This program runs from Gr. 5 through Gr. 8. 

Parents of Grade 4 students who wish to apply to the Grade 5

Extended French class for September 2017 are able to pick

up application forms at St. Philip School.  Completed applications

will be accepted in the office until 3:00 PM on Tuesday,

February 21st, 2017.  

The Extended French program starts in Grade 5. In the program, 50% of the total instruction is in French. The program includes studies in French language arts, social studies, science, and one of either: visual arts, music, drama or physical education. The program leads into Extended French at the secondary school level, where French language arts, geography, history and world religions are offered.

Students in the Extended French program usually attain a mid-range level of competency in the language.  This means that after at least 2,670 hours of French instruction during his/her school career, the student should be able to read newspapers and books, with the occasional help of a dictionary, as well as watch and understand radio and television news and other programs. The student should also be able to participate adequately in conversation, demonstrate knowledge of the culture, society, customs, economy, government and institutions of a French-speaking community and, after a few months residence, and function quite well in a French-speaking community.

The usual point of entry into Extended French is Gr. 5. Students submit an application to St. Philip in February of their Gr. 4 year. These application forms can be picked up at St. Philip School. It is possible, however, to apply for entry in later years, provided  space is available and French language requirements are met. Please call the school at 905 306-8420 if you have any questions. Again, thank you very much for your interest in this program!

*Students residing within the boundaries of the following schools are eligible to apply to the Extended French program at St. Philip: Bishop Scalabrini, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Gerard, St. Jerome, Fr. Daniel Zanon, Metro Andrei, St. David of Wales, Corpus Christi, John XXIII, Mary Fix, and St. Philip. Students residing outside the boundaries of these schools will be considered for admission under a flex boundary application.








Transportation eligibility is determined based on the home address of the child. 


Please be aware that until the bus companies settle their routes during the early weeks of October, only students eligible for transportation under the school board’s transportation policy will be provided bussing.


At St. Philip School, the only students in the regular program who are eligible for bussing are the kindergarten and grade 1 students. Extended French students who are in grades 5 to 8 and live beyond two (2) kilometers from the school are also eligible.  This means that if your child will be in grade 2 in Sept. 2016, then they will not be eligible for immediate bussing in September.  Their only option will be to apply for a courtesy seat, and the earliest possible granting of courtesy seats will be in early October.  Similarly, all students who applied for courtesy seats this year, will have to apply for courtesy seats again next September, and the earliest possible time for bussing to begin is early October.


If you wish to be considered for a courtesy seat, please indicate this in writing to the Principal stating the name of your child, grade and address, via the “Courtesy Seat” application available in the Office in September.  “Courtesy Seats” will be awarded based on first come, siblings, and age/grade level (i.e. younger students will receive preference). 


Courtesy seats may be rescinded during the year if new students enroll who are eligible for the seat.


REMINDER: Applications for bussing through the “Courtesy Seat” policy may be obtained at the school office in September. Assignment of courtesy seats will only begin in the early weeks of October when the transportation department indicates the number of courtesy seats available.  If you completed a courtesy seat application this year for your child to ride the bus, you must do so next year, and you will be responsible for his/her transportation until you receive written confirmation from the office that your child may ride the bus.  Again, the earliest this will take place is during the early weeks of October.


Parents can access their child(ren)'s bussing information by visiting  

This is the best way to keep up to date regarding bus routes, late busses, or cancellations. Parents will be required to enter their child's OEN number (found on their report cards) to get their child's specific bussing information.




Pupil Accommodation Review Policy Public Consultation


The Ministry of Education released the new Pupil Accommodation Review Guideline (PARG) in March 2015. This guideline sets expectations for all school boards on managing and reviewing underutilized school space, including potential school closures, and for the greater coordination and sharing of planning related information between school boards and other community partners. 


The guideline requires all school boards in the province to develop or revise Pupil Accommodation Review Policies and to invite public input into the policy before it is finalized.


A survey to collect feedback on the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board’s draft amended Policy 6.51 Pupil Accommodation Review will be available for review and comment on the Board’s website at until 4:30 pm on Friday, October 16, 2015.  Supporting documents will also be available for reference and review. Please consider reviewing and providing input on this policy.

The Online Reporting Tool

The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School board has developed a new way to help nurture a safe, caring and inclusive school environment.  The Online Reporting Tool is intended for students in grades 3 – 8 who become aware of bullying incidents and negative behaviours.  The student can simply ‘click’ on the link below to fill out the report.  The report will then be directly emailed to the principal and/or vice principal and will be dealt with accordingly.

It is important to recognize that the Online Reporting Tool is an alternate reporting option.  It is best practice to speak directly with a responsible adult at home and/or in the school.
