Phase One of the consultation process was completed in May of 2016. Phase Two of the Consultation process begins with the scheduling of 3 Regional French Immersion Public Consultation Meetings. Input gathered during consultation will be considered by the Board of Education when making decisions around immediate actions to be taken.

This year, we will focus on the skills and self-confidence that today's students need to succeed as leaders in the 21st century. The following skills will help develop our students as lifelong learners and leaders: i) Be Proactive; ii) Begin with the End in Mind; iii) Put First Things First; iv) Think Win Win; v) Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood; vi) Synergize; and vii) Sharpen the Saw. I hope that these 7 habits will be a source of dialogue and learning in your home throughout the year.
