Families that are able to support this effort, are invited to drop off non-perishable food items this week for donation.

French Immersion – The program is open to all students in Hamilton‐Wentworth starting in Grade 1 (current SK students).

The French Immersion application process for Senior Kindergarten students opens Monday, November 28, 2022 at 9 a.m. To learn more about the French Immersion program, HWDSB invites families to a French Immersion Information Night on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, from 7 – 8 p.m.  Additional event details will be shared in the coming days.

Grade 8 Information Nights – Grade 7 and 8 students and families are invited to visit their future secondary schools and learn more about HWDSB programs at upcoming Grade 7 & 8 Information Nights!
