The Primary School is supported by one full-time English as an Additional Language (EAL) teacher. This support is for students who are not proficient in English, in order to help them take full advantage of OSC’s curriculum and the social environment. This support is available for students from Grades 1-5. For those in Pre-school and Kindergarten, we believe that at these early stages of language development, immersion is best for the learner.
Students from Grades 2-5 attend EAL lessons in lieu of French, and can receive additional EAL lessons and in-class support according to their needs.
Student progress within the EAL programme is regularly checked by the EAL teachers, classroom teachers and the Primary Principal.
