Welcome to Bedford Public School
Welcome to Ecole Bedford Public School. We are a JK to grade 6, dual-track, French Immersion/English school on the north side of the Avon River in Stratford. We are close to the Stratford Festival Theatre and the beautiful parkland along the river.
The enrolment for 2013-14 is approximately 400 students. We still have JK/SK alternate day kindergarten until September 2014 when we will introduce Full-Day every day kindergarten into our school. This is the culmination of the introduction of FDK to the Avon-Maitland District School Board schools and in the rest of the province.
Our Bulldog mascot is worn proudly at many extra-curricular events as our students are involved in a wide variety of activities beyond the classroom. This year we will have a number of new Bedford Bulldog participants as our school boundaries have shifted and include students who have attended other schools. We welcome our new friends and hope they will find ways to dive into the life of our community through, academics, sports, arts, environmental and leadership opportunities. The more you are involved in your school, the better your experience is.
School Council is an active and involved parent group at our school. We meet once per month to discuss upcoming school events and to plan for activities to involve students and families. We welcome new members and hope you will find ways to contribute to some Bedford traditions, either by joining in what is planned or by bringing new ideas forward.
We are anticipating a year of growth, building new relationships and traditions. We look forward to creating a community where everyone contributes the best of themselves and recognizes the efforts of all.
