As part of our afterschool program, we offer a variety of interesting activities for children from kindergarten to grade 6 in partnership with the following schools of the Francophone school district, Francosud :
These activities, which include a range of physical, artistic and discovery activities, are offered at the end of the day in the schools. Groups are formed based on grade level to ensure children are with their peers and share a common skill level.
Our goal in with this program is to offer easy access to arts, culture and sports programs in French to francophone families living in a minority situation. These extra hours spent having fun in French will reinforce language skills as well as reinforce the development of a francophone identity.
This program also strives to reinforce the sense of belonging to the francophone community as well to strengthen Calgary’s francophone community by hiring local francophone talent to enrich our programs.
