French Immersion 

The French courses aim to provide all students in Manitoba with quality French instruction which enables them to communicate in the French language and to appreciate francophone cultures.

The goals of the courses are to give students the opportunity to:

  • acquire the necessary language skills to communicate in French;
  • value the learning of French as a tool for personal, intellectual, and social growth;
  • demonstrate an appreciation of Francophone cultures;
  • further develop intercultural communication skills that are essential to all global citizens.

Indigenous Education

Indigenous education in Manitoba schools is a set of policies, programs, and resources that aim to support the academic success and cultural inclusion of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students.

The Kelsey School Division is committed to supporting the inclusion of Indigenous perspectives in the curriculum and the classroom. Our Indigenous Education initiatives aim to help Instructional and Support staff to enrich their teaching practices with Indigenous knowledge, values, and cultures. We believe that this will benefit all students and foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of the diversity and history of our communities.
