Reinstate French Immersion at Sacred Heart Elementary 2018

This petition had 404 supporters

10/38 families have enrolled in French immersion for 2018 year so far. The school board is suggesting that this number is not adequate to offer programming in French immersion and plans to cut the program and won't allow recruitment in the school to increase the numbers. 


Sacred Heart is the only feeder school that offers French immersion on the burin peninsula. Our children and families deserve this option and our current speciality teachers who have settled here secure in their employment deserve to have employment. The benefits of such programming in a bilingual society is well established. Parents and children on the Burib Peninsula deserve to have this option in at least one school.
