Welcome to our Pauline Haarer Website!
École Pauline Haarer is located in downtown Nanaimo, BC, Canada. We have a community of 254 French immersion students, their families, 26 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!

SPORTS TEAMS - We are very fortunate to have a strong cross-country team thanks to our parent volunteers and coach Mike Connors. This year we also have both a boys and girls bantam team in football, thanks to coach Jeremie Cheng (boys) and Jerome Erdman/Jim Robinson (girls).
PLAYGROUND HELPERS - Thank you to Michelle Gale and the grade 5 playground helpers for initiating lunch recess activities. Grade 4s will be joining in for October.
LIBRARY NEWS Mme Nicole Cabral is our new librarian. We are calling the library the learning commons. If you have time to be part of reading groups or time to help in the library, please contact Mme Nicole. Students are invited to join the LEGO club in the library Tuesdays at lunch recess.
GARDENING: Thank you Helen, Julie, Breanna, Janet, and friends for watering the garden beds and the kinderpark dogwood over the summer. Our fabulous garden committee works with students at lunch on Wednesdays. We would love to have more parent volunteers join us!
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.
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE -We have an on-site Before and After School Care Program. Hours are 7:30-8:45 am and from after school until 5:30 pm.
