    OPEN HOUSE - Thursday, March 3, 2016 from 9 am - 2 pm
     
    2016 – 2017 FRENCH IMMERSION KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

    We fully anticipate a strong demand for next year’s French Immersion Kindergarten (FIM) program given what we have heard so far this fall. We are taking telephone calls and emails from Eastern Canada so we would like to be as transparent as possible and once again outline the process well in advance. The process for accepting pre-enrolment in our French Immersion Kindergarten will be as follows:
    1. Children who reside within Holyrood’s attendance area and any siblings in the attendance area will be accepted first. If space remains, then
    2. Students outside of Holyrood’s attendance are accepted.
    3. If there are more applicants from outside the attendance area then there are spaces, a RANDOM selection process will occur.
    We plan to have a total of 80 FIM Kindergarten spaces for the upcoming school year. If we receive more than 80 applications for the French Immersion program, we will participate in the District’s random selection process in mid-April (timelines to be determined). As a result, French Immersion Kindergarten registrations for the upcoming school year 2016-2017 will not be finalized until the last week of April 2016. It is important to note that as a district we do not keep waiting lists or accept students on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis. This is to ensure fair and equitable access to all students applying from outside the attendance area.
    Again, like last year, if you know of any families who will be applying to our French Immersion Kindergarten program for the upcoming school year, please share this information with them and/or invite them to call Mr. Hansen at 780-466-2292. Much appreciated.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Holyrood School!

Nestled in the Bonnie Doon area, Holyrood is a large literacy based school with a positive learning climate where Bright Futures Begin Here! Our dedicated, caring staff work together with parents and the community to offer a wide range of effective programs that enrich our students’ lives. We believe in student success!

High expectations for teaching and learning with a focus on improving literacy and numeracy across the curriculum will enrich the lives of our students. To that goal, our enthusiastic staff will strive to continually improve their professional practice through on-going development in Universal Design for Learning, Assessment best practices, 6+1 Traits© of Writing and SMART board© technology this year.

The richness of our school is also a result of high expectations for student conduct and behaviour. Every effort will be directed to encourage students to do and be their best. We will applaud their efforts and commend them for their successes – both in learning and as young people.

The quality that is exemplified in Holyrood’s teaching and learning is the result of the strong partnership between home and school. We are also grateful for the tremendous support of our parent community. Together, we will continue to provide excellence in education for our students - your children.

We look forward to you joining in our school life this year.

Sincerely,

Mr. Les Hansen
