Student feels positive atmosphere Rossland’s Francophone school

L’École des Sept-Sommets is the only French school from here to Nelson. All the students are very active and ready to learn new things.

Written in both English and French by L’École des Sept-Sommets student Natasha Robine.

L’École des Sept-Sommets is the only French school from here to Nelson. All the students are very active and ready to learn new things.

At l’École des Sept-Sommets we have a positive atmosphere. There is almost no intimidation.feels We are such a small school. With only 41 students we are a great big family. That way all the students know each other and have their own work to do.

The students here are very lucky. They all have their own ipad or laptop and we also have WIFI. Some people think it’s a distraction but for us it’s just another way to learn.

Also there was a study that said that bilingual students do better in school than students that only know one language.

Still with all those incredible things we still have a couple of adjustments to make.To start, we have three classes, one kitchen/teacher’s room, two bathrooms, a gym, an office and a library/space for kids with special needs. Our gym is divided in two, half for us and half for Rossland Rec.

Plus there is lead in our water which is not acceptable for a school. But we already have some solutions. You can run the water for a minute or you can bring your own water bottle.

As you can see l’École des Sept-Sommets is a really good school to be in.  Still like all the other schools we still have little things to improve.

L’École des Sept-Sommets est la seule école francophone d’ici à Nelson. Tous les élèves sont très actifs et prêts à apprendre des nouvelles choses.

À l’École des Sept-Sommets on a une atmosphère positive. Il n’y presque pas d’intimidation. Comme on est une petite école, avec seulement 41 élèves, on est toute une grande famille. Comme ça tous les élèves se connaissent et on leur propre petite tâche à faire.

Les élèves ici sont très chanceux. Ils ont tous leur propre Ipad ou ordinateur et on a du Wifi. Des personnes disent que c’est un distraction mais pour nous c’est une autre façon d’apprendre. Il y avait une étude qui a dit que les élèves bilingues ont des meilleurs résultats à l’école que les élèves avec seulement une langue.

Même avec toutes ces choses incroyables on a quelques ajustements à faire. Tout d’abord on n’a que trois classes, une cuisine/sale de professeurs,deux salles de bain, un gymnase, un bureau et une bibliothèque/espace pour les enfants avec des besoins spéciaux.

Notre gymnase est divisé en deux: une moitié est pour nos classes d’éducation physique et une moitié est pour Rossland Rec.

De plus, il y a du plomb dans l’eau qui n’est pas acceptable pour une école. Mais on a déjà des solutions pour ça. Tu peux faire couler l’eau pour une minute ou apporter ta propre bouteille d’eau.

Comme tu peux voir l’École des sept-Sommets est une très bonne école. Mais comme toutes les écoles on a des petites choses à améliorer.
