Letter to Parents- End of School and Summer School

Dear Parents/Guardians, 


We have almost reached the end of the IILP academic year and we thank you for all your support as we continued with the offering of the International & Indigenous Languages program through the remote learning format. 


We are filled with pride for all our students who continued their studies in the target languages and participated in the learning opportunities provided under the new circumstances. All students of the IILP will receive a Certificate of Participation for 2019-2020. The Certificates will be sent electronically to the emails provided by the Parents/Guardians. If for any reason, you do not receive the Certificate of Participation for your child, please contact the instructor of the class or the Site Principal, or send an email to iilp@ocdsb.ca


The last day of classes is June 6, 2020. Instructors will teach remotely that day and then have a chance to congratulate students for all their achievements and progress. 


Summer Program

This summer, the International Languages classes will be offered virtually to students in grades 1-8 from July 2 to July 24, 2020. The majority of the language classes will be offered in the morning, between 9:30am and 12:00pm in: Arabic, Bengali, Cantonese, Chin, Dari, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Kannada, Lai, Mandarin, Pashto, Persian (Farsi), Somali, Spanish, Tamil, Urdu, and Vietnamese. 


Students can also register for language classes that are offered between 1:00pm and 3:00pm in: Arabic, Mandarin, Pashto, Persian (Farsi), Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese. Students cannot attend the same language twice a day but can register in different languages.


Please note that the offering of the language classes is subject to enrolment. 


To register your child, please complete and submit the Online Registration form. Parents who have already completed the hard copy registration form for the onsite program, will still need to complete the new online Registration Form for the Virtual Languages Summer Program


The deadline for submitting the Registration Form is June 15, 2020. Students who are accepted into the program will be contacted by June 25th with a confirmation of acceptance. 


Please visit the IILP Summer Program website for further information.


Next year, 2020-2021

Unless other directions are received from the Ministry of Education, the Board continues planning for the provision of the International & Indigenous Languages Program for students from JK to Grade 8 next school year, 2020-2021. 


Please consult the International & Indigenous Languages Elementary Program website for updates and further information during the summer. 


Best wishes to you and your families for a great summer. Stay safe and healthy.
