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 in various sites across the Halton region and includes a Full School Year session (September – June) and a Summer program (July).

The Full year (September start) International and Indigenous Languages Elementary Program concludes with an End Of Year Celebration.  Students will receive a Certificate of Completion and a Progress Report prior to the event. This celebration will be held on the last Friday or Saturday class in June and is considered a regular scheduled class

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