French Immersion for 2014-15
Information Night & Registration 2014-2015
On Wednesday, January 22, 2014 students entering grade 1 in September 2014 and parents interested in the French Immersion Program in Stratford are invited to either of two information sessions beginning at 6:30 PM. They will be held at Anne Hathaway Public School at 77 Bruce Street, Stratford, and Bedford Public School at 59 Bedford Drive, Stratford. Anne Hathaway French Immersion is for students living in Stratford other than the Bedford area. Bedford French Immersion is for students living in the Bedford area and those whose home school is outside of Stratford.
Parents interested in obtaining information regarding the grade 1 French Immersion program for September 2014 are welcome to attend the information sessions, which will include a short video about the program and how it provides a French Immersion education from Grade 1 through High School graduation. Grade 1 is the only entry point for French immersion unless you have attended a French immersion program elsewhere.
Take a few short minutes to watch this video which will help you to understand the strategies and effectiveness of the Avon Maitland French Immersion program.
Registration forms are now available at all Avon Maitland Schools in Stratford and area during regular school hours or from the Bedford/Anne Hathaway School offices and are due by Monday, January 27, 2014.
Registration for kindergarten is also available at Anne Hathaway or Bedford if you have French Immersion intent for when your child enters grade 1. Border crossing requests for English stream students depends on enrolment space and decisions will be made in June.

DELF - The Diplôme d’études en langue française
Another important element in Avon Maitland's Core French Program and French Immersions is "DELF - The Diplôme d’études en langue française". The Avon Maitland District School Board has offered the DELF for the past three years, and each year interest and enthusiasm for the French Proficiency test grows. We are pleased to report that Avon Maitland students challenging the DELF in all levels offered, A2, B1, B2, have been successful.
