Message from the Administrative Team

Bienvenue à Central!

We are honored to be the Administrative Team at Central French Immersion Public School. Our staff provide an exciting and innovative program for students to excel at in all areas of the curriculum. Learning and applying the Character Traits in real life is something we expect of our students. Over the years, we have focussed on incorporating technology into our lessons on a daily basis to ensure that our students are 21st century learners who acquire the skills needed for the future job market.

We believe that every student wants to be successful. All of your teachers at Central are here to help you achieve your goals.

N'oubliez pas, le français c’est une opportunité!


  • Come to school every day, after a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast.
  • Arrive at your classes with all the materials you need to participate fully.
  • Be ready to start your lessons on time.
  • Participate in the lesson by listening attentively, helping others in your group, asking or answering questions and working on the assignment in front of you.
  • Ask for help right away when you find the lesson difficult.
  • Do your homework or review your work each evening in a comfortable, quiet place.
  • Get involved in school activities - choir, sports, clubs, drama, leadership.
  • Tell your family what you are doing at school. Teach them French words.
  • Speak French whenever you can.

Success happens one day at a time. The key is to plan to be successful each day with your choices and attitude. We hope you make the most of being a Stingray every single day!

Feel free to contact us at any time -- our "doors" are always open -- in-person, through email or telephone!
