Late Entry for Early Mandarin Bilingual Program

In case you missed it, we wanted to share an exciting announcement made by Principal Tim Krug in the November newsletter. For the first time ever, students with previous Mandarin language experience may apply to enter the Mandarin Bilingual program at other grade levels. Grades 4, 5 and 6 to be more specific. Kindly help us spread the word about this exciting development!

Students will be assessed and must have a level of Mandarin similar to the students in the grade to which they are applying.  Spaces per grade are limited; a draw will be held should there be more applicants than spaces. Please follow these steps to apply:

  1. Visit
  2. Download and fill out the Grade 1-7 Program Application Form
  3. Submit the application to the front desk staff at John Norquay Elementary by January 31, 2008.  Note: assessments will take place after the application closing date.
