In the Halton District School Board, the only entry point for the French Immersion program is Grade 2.
A series of community information evenings are held in November and December to help address any questions parents/guardians may have before registering their Grade 1 child(ren) for the French Immersion program. View the presentation from the Parent Information Nights to learn more about the Grade 2 French Immersion entry.
