Welcome to an exciting new year of learning at Colonel Irvine School with vibrant Regular, Mandarin and Traditional Learning Centre programs
Parents and students,
The CBE has now launched an online survey for impacted schools where programs may be moving. As you may know, Colonel Irvine is full and at capacity, and there is consideration for a program to be moving next year, either the Chinese Mandarin bilingual program, the Traditional Learning Center program or the Regular program, to make space for the future growth of the school.
The survey is for parents and students. The survey for Areas I & II is live and posted on the public website now, Colonel Irvine is in Area 2. This survey will remain open until Dec. 5, 2016.
