 EXTENDED FRENCH PROGRAM

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

Current Gr. 4 students who wish to apply for Gr. 5 Extended French for Sept. 2016 should hand in a completed application package no later than Tuesday, Feb 16 @ 3:00PM @ St. Philip School. Application packages are available at the school.

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, but it is possible 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.

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 www.dpcdsb.org 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.

Please click on the link below to access the Online Reporting Tool:
