Keep Those Letters Coming! French Immersion Kindergarten Intake

Dear Parents

As you know, our school is faced with losing a FI kindergarten class next year.
In the last month, we asked parents to write the school board to voice their concerns about this cut.
This direct action has lead to frank discussions with the Vancouver school board where they have stated their support for French immersion and their hope for eventual restoration of the classes — “to make this right” in the trustees words. If you would like to read about the situation and what has happened so far in detail, a main menu of the PAC website has been dedicated to this content: https://trafalgarpac.ca/
We need to continue to speak out to ensure that:
  • The VSB keeps their commitment to French education and makes best efforts to restore our kindergarten class for 2017-2018
  • The provincial government ensures sufficient funding for schools in light of the Supreme Court ruling and the evolving needs of our district
The PAC is asking that you please write the VSB and your MLA if you haven’t done so already.  
 
Personal letters to the board and MLAs are most effective.  We have letters written up that can be used as a base linked below, but please feel free write your own with your own thoughts, situation, feelings, etc.
Write the VSB trustee and acting superintendent (dianne.turner@vsb.bc.ca and john.lewis@vsb.bc.ca).  Our VSB template letter is here.
Write your MLA and the leader of their party.  Our MLA template letter is here.  Some local MLA contact information is below.  Make sure to write to your MLA.

Thank you,
Gord Lau
