After School Enrichment Program

The Royal Vale Elementary Home and School Association provides two programs that introduces our students to a wide range of interests beyond the school curriculum.

In-depth social skills programs, including friendship, conflict resolution, respect and anti-bullying, are offered at the kindergarten level. They are funded by the yearly registration fees paid by all elementary parents to the Home and School Association.

Students select one program per school year:

Le cours de français fait la promotion de l'utilisation et de la compréhension du français oral. Il propose également une introduction aux stratégies de lecture. Pour ce faire, nous couvrons un large éventail de thèmes liés à la vie quotidienne des élèves tels que; les couleurs, les formes, les animaux et la nourriture. Au courant de l'année, certains projets spéciaux leur permettront d'exprimer leur créativité ainsi que de développer leurs compétences en matière de coopération. À travers cette variété d’activités, ils approfondiront leurs habiletés en expression orale, en lecture et en écoute.
