What is LFSF Forward and Why is it important 

The LFSF program encompasses multiple phases of a child's education. Each transition can generate questions or concerns for students and their parents. 

When students have a positive and connected experience in anticipation of this transition, they experience a sense of belonging that supports learning in and out of the classroom as well as deepens their friendships and social networks.  

This LFSF Forward program aims at providing

  • the structure for children to make real connections with their older peers and
  • the information for both students and their parents 

to support their decision making and inspire them to continue their bilingual journey.

What's the next step

DEC 08 is just the first step in this program.

Parents and students will be invited to attend an information session to present practical and academic information pertaining to this important transition. Details to follow.
