en-francais-s-il-vous-plaitNovember 23, 2015 ~ Kehila Jewish Community School understands the value of learning another language and it can now boast that it offers trilingual instruction, that is in Hebrew, English and French!Students are in the process of developing knowledge and skills to appreciate, comprehend, communicate and interact in French, one of Canada's official languages. They are learning to use the language not only to express needs and interests, but to use it also as the medium through which they can acquire and apply knowledge in a variety of subject areas.The knowledge of two or more languages enhances cognitive development as well as problem-solving and creative-thinking skills. It also nurtures self-confidence in overall learning and in interacting with others in positive, socially acceptable and effective ways. Students will discover that they need to focus closely on how to interpret what others are trying to communicate to them as well as on what they are trying to communicate to others through oral and eventually written forms. This promotes supportive, collegial social attributes towards the ultimate goal to educate children to become life-long learners and responsible, contributing citizens.So the next time you enter Kehila, get ready to say, "Shalom", "Hello" and "Bonjour"!

bienvenue-a-kehilaOctober 13, 2015 ~ Kehila students are now the first in Hamilton to be learning three languages! This year French has been added to the English and Hebrew curriculum.Madame Anne DeClara has joined the Kehila family, bringing her 33 years of French immersion teaching experience with the Hamilton-Wentworth Board. Anne received her Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto and also has her Principal's qualification from Brock University.Studies have shown that a multilingual brain is nimbler, quicker and better able to deal with ambiguities. Children in particular have all the capacities necessary to master two or more languages at the same time – already evident in countries such as Switzerland and Belgium where speaking several languages is the norm.The added bonus is Kehila's integrated curriculum, where studies traditionally taught separately and in isolation are brought together encouraging students make connections and build knowledge. Learning becomes much more engaging and children begin to think critically.
