A previous post is entitled:

Question from Claire: Is this the same Cartierville School that I attended 1970-71 in its first year as a “French Immersion School”?

I have added an update to the latter post; the update reads as follows below. I have posted the update as a separate post, the post you are now reading. That’s my way of bringing attention to it. The update reads:

From an article in the Gazette June 1970. Elmgrove School was the experiment in 1969-70. The PSBGM expanded it to other schools in the 1970-71 school year. Other schools such as Cartierville took it up in 1970-71:

I attended Cartierville school as the first French class there in 1970. It was the 2nd school to open Fr Immersion after Elmgrove. We had 7 classes of Gr. 7s!

Wonderful to know! It’ is so valuable to know the sequence: Elmgrove followed by Cartierville.

    I much appreciate the help that people have provided, in enabling us to track down what appears, from all the evidence that has been accumulated to date, to be a good answer to Claire’s question.

    The following of the evidence, I would say, is very much what the Preserved Stories website is about. The site has value to extent that the information that we share is evidence-based, verifiable, and corroborated from a good range of reliable sources.

    I want to thank every person who has, in one way or another, assisted us, in this process of ensuring that the information that we share is accurate (that is, factual and evidence-based) and is presented in a way that is balanced (that is, taking into account a wide range of perspectives and points of view).
