Superintendent Constance McCleese reported on the French Immersion 3/4 first term provincial test results. Our students are doing extremely well with excellent results. The Division’s French program continues to shine on provincial standardized testing in both French language learning and in mathematics which is taught in French. The Superintendent also had the opportunity to accompany the French Immersion field trip to Winnipeg for Festival du Voyageur. The four day trip had students busy from 7 am to 11 pm for a variety of activities all in French. McCleese said it was wonderful to spend time with the students and noted that at a particular event one of the organizers mentioned how impressed they were at how well the students conducted themselves.
