Yorkhill Elementary School is a school rich in diversity, community and heart of many Thornhill residents. It is a school for which many residents chose their neighborhood to live in. We want to have the ability to continue on the French education pathway that our students are enrolled in, and be given fair access to a school nearby in L4J side of Yorkhill. The enrichment of another language is clearly wanted in our own community.The need for French is huge, with four Grade 1 French immersion classes currently at Yorkhill, and 2-3 classes of both Grade 2 and 3 French, with more French teachers being needed in Sept.

Bussing our students to a school not in our neighborhood causes a lot of inconvenience (siblings separated, more time at home due to bus cancellations, parents having to choose to stop French education due to school distance etc). We wish to have the ability to have the choice to stay, if possible, for as long as possible.
