French Immersion Celebration Week 2017
Once again in 2017, to celebrate our volunteers and the successes of French Immersion in BC & Yukon, Canadian Parents for French BC & Yukon is pleased to announce that the week of January 30 – February 5, 2017, will officially be recognized as French Immersion Celebration Week by both the Government of British Columbia and the Government of Yukon.
During this week of celebration, CPF members will be organizing events across the province. Students and their families are invited to celebrate and share their achievements in French Immersion programs. French Immersion Celebration Week aims for inclusion: the ability to speak French or being enrolled in French Immersion are not requirements to enjoy the celebrations!
