Our Lady of Lourdes French Immersion Catholic School is an inclusive learning environment committed to providing an education that promotes faith development and academic excellence in both English and French.
The Gospel values form the foundation of our school. As we strive to grow together in faith, we look for different opportunities to exemplify our Catholicity in the school and community. At OLOL, the Catholic Christian Living program is not limited to a subject, but is embedded in all that we do. Students participate in liturgies, masses and social justice initiatives throughout the school year. In doing so, they develop a deeper understanding of what it means to follow Christ’s teachings of love and service to others.
Students spend 50% of their day learning in French. Their exposure to French begins in Kindergarten with the use of hand gestures and is reinforced in later grades with authentic tasks such as role playing. That being said, do not be surprised if when you enter the school you are greeted with a “Bonjour” and a “Comment ça va?”
An enthusiasm for learning is not exclusive to students at our school. The OLOL staff’s love of learning is contagious in their 21st century classrooms. Students are engaged when using technology and the latest strategies aimed at enhancing academic achievement and developing critical thinkers. Students also benefit from learning the Arts and Physical Education from specialized teachers who are passionate about their subjects.
Our goal is to cultivate the “whole” child. In doing so, students are given an opportunity to showcase their talents, and acquire new ones, by taking part in various intra- and extra-curricular activities. These opportunities are valued and celebrated in our school community because they allow students to develop socially, emotionally and physically.
Every student is a child of God who has been blessed with unique strengths. At Our Lady of Lourdes French Immersion Catholic School, we acknowledge the strengths of our students and look to them as a source of problem solving and conflict resolution. Students are given leadership roles in the school and are encouraged to share their voice on councils and committees.
We trust that your child’s stay at our school will be an enriching educational experience and we look forward to welcoming your family into our school community. Together, we can support your child in achieving to his/her full potential.
