Welcome to the Pauline Haarer Website!
École Pauline Haarer is located in downtown Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. We're a close-knit group with about 250 French immersion students and 20 staff members. We invite parents, students and members of our community to use the links in the upper left to find your way around this site.
L'école Pauline Haarer est fière d'avoir été une des premières écoles d'immersion à Nanaimo en ouvrant ses portes en septembre 1977. Notre école reçoit son nom d'une enseignante dévouée qui à enseigné à Nanaimo de 1890 à 1936. En 1935, elle a reçu la médaille King George pour ses services à l'apprentissage!
School Start Up - Tentative Updates:
The office has been open since August 25 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm with the exception of Thursday, August 28 where the hours are 8:00 am - 11:30 am because of a principals' meeting. As principal, I am at the school each weekday unless I am called away to a meeting and you are welcome to meet with me (the front doors are open) or call the school at 250-754-2722 if you have questions. Please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.
Students were scheduled to return to school Wednesday, September 3rd from 8:45 am - 2:45 pm. Until the teacher job action is resolved, that date remains tentative.
Here are the Supply Lists for Grades One through Seven:
Kindergarten students should have received a letter in the mail explaining the Gradual Entry process and schedule. At this time, I expect the kindergarten gradual entry schedule to be as described with the first date of return to school as the first day on the schedule you received.
Once we have this information, I will update the school calendar and the gradual entry schedule accordingly. Please continue to check the media, the school district website and our school website for updates.
I look forward to working with all of you very soon! À bientôt, j'espère!
Karina Younk, Principal
