Like you, I care deeply about our children’s education. I want to ensure they have a positive educational experience, in welcoming and dynamic French public schools. I’ve been working on this as a member of the Pierre Elliott Trudeau school council for several years. I am president this year, after taking on a variety of other roles.
For my two kids and for yours, my priorities are:
- Parental involvement: Parents are the first affected by board policies and school openings. Broader consultations would make Viamonde more transparent and allow for more meaningful community support.
- Francophonie: Mixed couples now make up the majority of Viamonde families. We need to provide more supports for francophone parents to allow them to transmit their language and culture to their offspring, given the challenges of the English-speaking environment.
- Inclusive schools: Every family needs to feel at home in our community, whatever their cultural background or family composition.
