École Belmont is a French immersion milieu school in the Seven Oaks School Division on Treaty 1 territory and the homeland of the Métis Nation. We currently have approximately 265 students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 and 29 staff members.
At École Belmont we strive to create an inclusive, multilingual community that celebrates diversity and values the voice of each child. We are proud that many students, families and staff members refer to our school community as “La Famille Belmont – the Belmont Family.”
Over the years, we have become the Belmont Bees. The inspiration to have our school logo represented by a bee comes from the awe and wonderment of bees! They have much to teach us about achieving goals, interdependence, unity and well-being of our community and our planet.
École Belmont is like a beehive. We are a community where everyone plays an important role. Every bee is important and every little action we do can add value to the hive. The strong communication and collaboration amongst bees makes the hive a democratic and successful place. Like bees, we endeavor to create a place where we all work at taking care of ourselves, each other and our space. As bees create honey, together we contribute to realizing the sweetness and the beauty of life.
À l’École Belmont, nous sommes une famille.
Tout le monde est inclus.
Tout le monde appartient.
Nous visons à développer des enfants empathiques
Qui célèbrent la diversité
Qui se perçoivent comme des citoyens capables
Engagés pleinement dans la vie.
Nous croyons que les voix des enfants sont importantes
Que chaque individu est unique
Que la gentillesse est au fond de tout
Que tout va mieux avec la collaboration
Et que tous les enfants sont capables d’apprendre
et de vivre en français.
