Sir Wilfrid Laurier

 

Our school is named after an amazing Canadian named Sir Wilfrid Laurier. Laurier was the seventh Prime Minister of Canada. He served from 1896 to 1911. Canada was a new country when Laurier became Prime Minister. He strongly believed that the twentieth century would belong to Canada and that it would become a powerful country by the end of the century, and he was correct. He was the Prime Minister who began Canada's road to independence from England. He also wanted Canada to remain independent from the United States. Laurier was a bilingual French Canadian and he encouraged young people to become bilingual. When he was Prime Minister, Laurier arranged for Manitoba to have bilingual schools. Our school has a very strong French Immersion program - one that he would have been proud to see.   Canada became a strong independent country with a bilingual population during Laurier's time and our school represents what his vision was of the future.
