Welcome to the Pauline Haarer Website!
École Pauline Haarer is located in downtown Nanaimo, BC, Canada. We have a community of 250 French immersion students, their families, 20 staff members and a very, large supportive group of volunteers (both parents and community members). Please use the links in the upper left to navigate our website.
L'école Pauline Haarer est fière d'avoir été la première école d'immersion à Nanaimo en ouvrant ses portes en septembre 1977. Notre école reçoit son nom d'une enseignante dévouée qui a enseigné à Nanaimo de 1890 à 1936. En 1935, Mme Pauline Haarer a reçu la médaille King George pour ses services à l'apprentissage!
WEEKLY REMINDERS Our weekly memo is posted here. Check our web calendar for up-to-date information on events and our monthly school newsletter posted the first day of each month.
ZONE TRACK AND FIELD MEET, FRIDAY, MAY 27: Congratulations to the 86 students in grades 3-7 who have qualified for one or more events at the Zone 4 Meet, May 27. Results have been posted by the gym. Please note that the top 4 qualifiers in each event have been registered for the meet and will travel to and from the meet by bus (unless parents make other arrangements with the teachers). Students who placed 5th are alternates; they may be asked to participate if one of the other qualifying students is unable to attend the day of the meet.
GARDENING: If you have netting or fencing materials and a bit of time to help out, the gardeners will be busy in the garden every Wednesday.
VOLUNTEER INFORMATION: Thank you to the 155+ volunteers working with children in our school for completing the Criminal Record Check (CRC). If you have not done the CRC, we have an information sheet explaining this online and free process in the office. Please send Jennifer Mile an email with your name and birthdate when you have completed the CRC. Drivers must complete the volunteer driver information form in the office. We are NOT required to request abstracts-insurance history (though it is a simple process by calling ICBC at 1-800-950-1498).
