Description

Collège Jeanne-Sauvé or CJS was the first French immersion high school in Western Canada, named in honour of former governor-general of Canada, Jeanne Sauvé. It is situated in the southern St. Vital area of Winnipeg, Manitoba and is part of the Louis-Riel school division. The high school runs from grade 9 to grade 12.HistoryCollège Jeanne-Sauvé was the first French immersion high school in Western Canada. It was created as a result of the efforts of parents to ensure that their children be able to continue in French immersion after Grade 8. The school was finally opened in January 1990 to grades eight through twelve. Its name was chosen to recognise the distinct ability that Sauvé had to bridge the gap between English and French communities, one of the main goals of French immersion. The Right Honorable Jeanne Sauvé (former Governor General of Canada) was invited to the Official Opening of the school which took place on March 1, 1990. Regrettably, she was unable to attend but kept her promise to visit the school named in her honour. Madame Sauvé visited Collège Jeanne-Sauvé for the entire school day on October 5, 1990 when she spoke to students and staff and visited classrooms in the school.Feeder schoolsThe schools whose students generally enroll in Collège Jeanne-Sauvé are École St. Germain, École Julie-Riel, École Marie-Anne-Gaboury, École George McDowell, and École Varennes. There are also students who come from other French schools within the community.
