Hie Ottawa Citizen Apr. 15, 1971 Page 3 Parents, teachers prefer longer French hours to mrii ersion Most people at the meeting appeared to agree that full bilingualism was impossible. A quick show of hands at the end revealed a large majority in favor of aa increased French program rather than immersion to achieve a working knowledge of the language. or whole day kindergartens which operate in both languages, one in the morning, the other in the afternoon. In Grade 1, parents can choose immersion or a syllabus in which one-quarter of the day is spent in French.

Mr. Campbell said the board felt immersion to be the best method of imparting bilingualism. However, a report is to go before the board in two or three weeks and he did not rule out other means. if the board of education had considered a middle-ground course like that offered by the separate school board. The Catholic board offers parents of English-speaking children the option of half-day kindergarten in English compared to their peers In normal classes, especially those bright enough to take accelerated or enriched courses.

It was pointed out that immersion could be considered a form of enrichment. Mr. was asked cerned with the program, said he was confident that teachers were able to spot cases before any serious damage could occur.

On the other hand, many parents are wary of the total immersion kindergarten, course that tlje board of education offers as the only alternative. The board has six such kindergartens and proposes to expand the project to 25 schools next September. Parents of five-year-old children have been approached to indicate their Merest in a totally French-speaking program in kindergarten. About 100, many of them teachers as well as parents, met at St. Martin's Anglican Church hall Wednesday to discuss the pros and cons of the program.

Strictly business The meeting was marked by absence of histrionics. Several people worried about the lack of screening of children entered for immersion kindergartens because children with learning problems might be overlooked. Ross Campbell, the board superintendent con By Angus Ricker Citizen staff writer The Carleton Separate School Board's 1971 budget continues to come out in dribs and drabs. One drib is that the rate will increase 6.5 mills to an average of 61.5 and a drab is that total expenditures are estimated at $8,687,029. The budget continues to leak out this way because the board has been holding open budget meetings.

However, copies of the draft budget, all stamped "confidential," are not available to press or public. Highlights If approved in present form, budget highlights Total expenditures up $1.1 million from $7.5 million in 1970. No cutbacks in either the number of teachers or programs in meeting provincial spending guidelines. No provision for salary, increases for the 566 teachers in the 41-school system that accommodates 11,000 pupils in French and English-language. Finance committee chairman Vernon Zinck said after Wednesday's meeting that it was "not realistic" to omit a cost-of-living increase for teachers.

He said a "misunderstanding" of the board's administrative staff had led trustees to believe the provincial budget ceiling was lower. wirephoto vL niarfcrmtftr xm A major economy will be provided by raising the pupil-teacher ratio from 19.1 to the provincial average of 23.1. This will allow staffing of four new schools the board intends to open next fall Mr. Zinck said a cut in the school supplies allowance from $42 a pupil to $34 saved close to $100,000. In alL the finance committee pared $500,000 from an original draft of $9.1 million submitted by the administration last October.

The biggest expenditure is for salaries, about $4 million. Final approval of the budget hinges on a board decision on a proposed French-language kindergarten for English schools. The program would require eight teachers to serve a maximum of 22 classes. The board will consider the budget again April 20.

'Aim Jtl iu By The Canadian Press The cabinet, has passed an order preventing economic development in an 870-square-mile area along the' South Nahanni River in the Northwest Territories pending a feasibility study on creating a national park. The decision prevents the further staking of mineral claims or filing for oil and gas drilling permits. A department spokesman said there will be "no further economic development of any kind allowed" until preliminary studies determine whether the region is suitable for a national park and whether economic de- velopment will be allowed if it is turned into a park.

The area visited by Prime Minister Trudeau last July includes the valley of the South Nahanni from above Virginia Falls to approximately 30 miles above its juncture with the Liard River, a distance of about 80 miles. The department spokesman said Northern Affairs Minister Chretien expects public hearings will be held under the authority of the Territorial Lands Act as part of the study on the creation of a park and preservation of the area. Until such decisions were made, the order would "not prejudice" existing rights of holders of mineral claims or oil and gas permits. But digging and drilling under the permits would not proceed until a decision was made on a park. TOR BALDING HEADS LIKE THESE, a "SAVE-YOUR-HAIR DAY" has been announced.

The board will be asked to establish a committee to come up with a new name for the occupational school which was purchased recently from the Ottada Separate School Board. Advisory committee chairman Dr. Laurent Isabelle Wednesday night said the main reason for the name switch was confusion in the mail.

Letters for the school are often addressed "Ecole Secondare Vanier," and end up at Ecole Secondaire Andre Laurendeau, and vice-versa. Dr. Isabelle said a name change also would enforce the transition of the schoot from one board to the other, and from a public school to a secondary school A name change for Ecole Secondaire Notre Dame de Lourdes also was discussed.
