Whether your child is enrolled in the English Language Program (with daily French instruction) or French Immersion, Canadian Parents for French - Saanich Chapter is here to support and enrich your child's educational experience.

Saanich School District 63 (SD63) recognizes the benefits students can acquire from learning French as a second language (FSL). It is the only district within British Columbia where French language instruction begins in Kindergarten regardless of whether parents choose English or French Immersion. The SD63 does not have a late entry French Immersion Program, as in some other districts, and students enter the French Immersion Program in either Kindergarten or Grade 1. 

École Stelly's Secondary, within our district offers an innovative intensive French Immersion Semester. View this video to hear how and why it works for our Grade 11/12 students.
