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 a enseigné à Nanaimo de 1890 à 1936. En 1935, elle a reçu la médaille King George pour ses services à l'apprentissage!
