For Immediate Release
Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board to Hold Public Information Meetings for 2022-2023 French Immersion Program
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) will hold a series of virtual public information meetings for parents and guardians interested in enrolling their child(ren) in the board’s Grade 1 French Immersion Program for the 2022-2023 school year.
The information sessions will provide parents and guardians with the following:
• an overview of the French Immersion Program,
• the criteria for admittance,
• information about the online application process,
• information about the random selection process (should the number of applications exceed the number of spaces available)
DPCDSB currently offers the Grade 1 French Immersion Program at eight school sites. Students registered in this Grade 1 program will spend 90% of their year learning in the French language. All subjects and activities in the French Immersion classroom, except for Religion and Family Life, will be delivered in French. In Grades 2 and 3, 70% of the instruction will be in French, with the proportion of English increasing to 50% in later years. This means that after at least 3800 hours of French instruction by the end of Grade 8, the student will be able to participate adequately in French conversations and develop inter-cultural awareness of French-speaking communities.

Please note that the Teams Meeting will take place
on Tuesday November 7th and Thursday December 9th
depending on which school you are applying to.
