English Language Learners
The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board welcomes and supports all students whose first language is not English. English language learners bring rich experiences to all of our classes, therefore we welcome and value this diversity. Our educators adapt their programs to address English language learners’ different levels of proficiency in English and help these students adjust to a new linguistic, cultural, and educational environment. Parents are encouraged to continue speaking with their child in their home language. This will give the child a strong foundation in his/her first language and make learning English in the classroom easier. Parents are also encouraged to continue celebrating their family and cultural traditions.
If you are new to Canada, have a school-aged child, and English is not your first language, we welcome the opportunity to assist you with enrolling your child in school. Our staff will provide guidance for English language learners and their families. If you wish to register your child, please contact your local school.
