Registration is now open! Courses will be offered in a Virtual (online) platform, with the possibility of transferring to an in-class model later in the year pending Covid-19 developments. Registration closes October 5th.

About The Program

The International and Indigenous Languages Elementary Program is a non-credit program that is open to all Halton elementary school-age children (JK-8) regardless of their cultural or ethnic background.

This program provides Halton students with the opportunity to develop their language skills,  deepen their cultural awareness, foster pride in their heritage and strengthen their self-esteem. In addition to building language skills, research demonstrates that students who study languages in addition to English and French perform better in other school subjects.

This program runs over a Virtual (online) platform, with the possibility of converting to various in-class sites across the Halton region pending Covid-19 developments.  This Program includes a Full School Year session (September – June) and a Summer program (July).

Classes DO run on all P.A. Days unless the date coincides with a holiday.
