International Languages

In an effort to capture the value of our truly multicultural society, we encourage the teaching of any modern language in which students are interested and a teacher is available.  The Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board is planning a variety of International Language classes for elementary and secondary students. 

Classes are held during the evening or on Saturday mornings and in the past we have offered elementary Polish, Korean, Arabic, Persian, Hindi, Punjabi, German and Hebrew. At the secondary level, we offer Korean, Hindi, Polish and Spanish. Secondary school students may take up to 3 credits in International Languages.  Secondary classes will be a credit course that can be added to a student’s transcript towards graduation.
