École Voyageur is K-5 French Immersion school. We acknowledge that our school is built on Treaty One land, the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, Ininiw and Dakota peoples, and the homeland of the Red River Métis Nation. It is also the current home of the Dene and Oji-Cree peoples. The land connects us all. The goal of the French Immersion program is to foster learning to create confident, proud, and engaged global citizens who are plurilingual. Our vision is to develop the French language so that students can spontaneously, autonomously, and confidently interact in French. Our goal is for students to develop a sense of belonging in French culture, to feel competent in both French and English and to be aware and accepting of other languages and cultures.
Voyageur School opened in 1968 and was an English School until June of 2020. In September 2021, École Voyageur was established. The school is in the northwest corner of the Crestview community, just west of Sturgeon Creek. We are currently a community of approximately 250 students.
At École Voyageur, we believe that everyone in our community is important and unique. It is our goal to provide students with deeper learning opportunities to develop their character as well as life skills that will serve them in the future. Families are essential partners in our community, and we welcome all families to join in our learning through volunteer opportunities.
