EXTENDED FRENCH PROGRAM

 

The Extended French Program at St. Philip School runs from Gr. 5 through Gr. 8.

There will be a public information meeting at St. Philip School on Thursday, January 15 at 7:00PM for parents and guardians interested in enrolling their children in the Extended French program for the 2015-16 school year. The information session is intended to provide parents and guardians with an overview of our Extended French program, the criteria for admittance, and changes that can be expected from the regular program

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.

In cases where the number of applications exceeds the number of places available at a school, a lottery would be held at a predetermined and advertised date, if required. In all other cases, students will be placed in the program, provided all required documentation is in order.

Parents looking for additional information can call the school at 905 306-8420, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the Extended French program.

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. 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.

 

 

 

SCHOOL BUS INFORMATION

 

Parents can access their child(ren)'s bussing information by visiting www.stopr.ca  

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.

At St. Philip School, the only students eligible for bussing are Kindergarten and Grade 1 students who live more than 1.0 km from the school, and Extended French students who live beyond 2.0 km from the school.

This means that if your child will be in grade 2 in Sept. 2015, 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 in 2014-15, will have to apply for courtesy seats again in September 2015, and the earliest possible time for bussing to begin is early October.

 

Students who are not eligible for transportation may apply to the Principal through the courtesy rider policy for permission to ride the bus. 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. 

 

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

 

PLASP Child Care Services operates an After School Program at this school. 

The After School Program begins once school is dismissed and goes until 6:00 p.m.  Children participate in recreational activities, are served a nutritious snack daily, and have time for homework.

Fee assistance is available.
To register your child, please visit the PLASP Program Director, after school. You may also call 905.890.1711 or visit the website at www.plasp.com
