Learn a New Language This School Year!

Learn a New Language This School Year!
Posted on 09/08/2022

Want to learn a new language or maintain the language of your home or heritage?  The Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School board is once again offering our International & Indigenous Languages Program to students in Kindergarten to Grade 8. 

Students can register to learn various languages, including; Spanish, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Mandarin, Tagalog, Arabic, Ukrainian, Ojibwe / Anishinaabemowin and others.  And the best part? It’s FREE!

Studies show that children who learn a second language develop the tools to be more successful in their education. Starting early also improves the child’s ability to become more confident carrying the new language into their future.

The program runs online from October 1, 2022 to May 13, 2023 on Saturdays from 9 - 11:30 a.m. Please note, for virtual remote classes, students must have their own device and access to the internet in order to participate. Space is limited.
