École St.-Jean Baptiste welcomes prospective students for second time

École St.-Jean Baptiste welcomes prospective students for second time

A local elementary school welcomed young students with the hopes they join the fold.


École St.-Jean Baptiste held an open house for prospective JK and SK students last Thursday evening. Principal Diana Bala said they had a JK/SK open house in January and wanted to have another to try and increase enrolment.


“This is the second open house we are doing,” explained Bala.


Students from the French-Catholic school’s student parliament as well as members of the parent council helped guide parents and their children to classrooms to talk to teachers and experience programming. They had various stations in the gymnasium where students could have some fun and there was an opportunity to experience the school’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program.


Bala added the parents were given a “passport” that they could get stamped as the toured the school.


“The children are following the passport,” she said.


Registration in JK and SK for the 2024-25 school year is over 30 thus far, Bala pointed out, but they are always looking to welcome more students. She said last Thursday’s event was a “mini” open house with it being larger in January.


“If someone did have the chance to see the school in January, they can see it right now,” Bala said during last Thursday evening’s open house. “This is the second opportunity to welcome them.”


École St.-Jean Baptiste welcomes students from around the Amherstburg area. It is located at 365 Fryer St. and their phone number is 519-736-6427.
