Welcome to our 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 at the 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!

Then celebrate a successful summer of reading with a wrap-up party at the library. Registration is FREE and starts on June 20th. For more information, call or visit your local branch of Vancouver Island Regional Library.
GARDENING: Thank you Helen, Julie, April and Jeannette for guiding the garden beds clean-up Monday, June 27. Our amazing garden volunteers are organizing a watering schedule over the summer. If you are able to help out, please let the office before July 7. If you are playing in the schoolyard or the park over the summer, pulling just a few weeds or feeding the water bag around the Kinderpark tree will make our space look more inviting!
VOLUNTEER INFORMATION: Every helping hand for every job, big or small is appreciated and we could not be an amazing school without such support and commitment. If you completed your criminal record check this year, it is valid for 5 years, so you will not have to repeat the process in September. 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. Volunteer Drivers must complete the volunteer driver information form in the office.
Thank you for your incredible support and participation at our school!
