Canadian Parents for French

CPF – Nova Scotia French for Parents/Adults Classes Spring 2016:  Here is an opportunity for parents of immersion students or any adult wishing to improve their French language skills!  This course is suited to beginner and intermediate students who want to be more comfortable using French, and have a better grasp on the basic rules of the language.  Each week uses a thematic approach in order to cover a range of important topics. The first half of each class is concept based, including learning vocabulary, grammar, and structure, whereas the second half of each class is practice and oral activities, so you can put into place that night’s lesson.  Activities will be designed for students who are beginners or intermediate and each week’s activities will have different targets for learners from each category.  Classes are 90 minutes each, and the course is eight weeks in duration (starting on April 12th in Bedford).  To register, contact Canadian Parents for French Nova Scotia by phone at 902-453-2048 or by e-mail at .  Classes are capped to 12 students, register early to avoid disappointment.

Big changes to the School Insurance Program for 2015-16

Nova Scotia School Insurance Program (SIP) is the non-profit insurer owned by school boards across Nova Scotia.

Since 1988 we have paid for basic student accident insurance for every student in the Province for school hours and activities.

In previous years we sent all schools flyers to give to each student providing parents and guardians the option to purchase the Gold Plan for 24/7 coverage. This year we would like to promote the Gold Plan only online, in an effort to take the eco-friendly route, reduce costs and staff time.
