Bring French Immersion to Kimberley!

I support bringing early introduction French Immersion to Kimberley, BC.

Elementary school students have tremendous potential for language learning. Benefits of bilingualism are greater academic achievement, increased empathy, decreased prejudice, and expanded job opportunities. Kimberley, BC is a growing community, with a large demographic of young families. Not only do we have a healthy and vibrant francophone community in our town, we also have English-speaking parents who desire the benefits of a French Immersion education for their children. 

We urge School District 6 and our Superintendent, Paul Carriere, to implement an Early Introduction French Immersion program in Kimberley.
