The Ukrainian language program has been in Vegreville since it was first introduced in Alberta over 40 years ago. Our language program began as a bilingual program and is now an optional language and culture program from Kindergarten to Grade 6.
The learning of Ukrainian is accomplished through individual and group activities. Cultural celebrations related to holidays, foods, traditions, and songs are important components of the Ukrainian program.
Students can enrol in the Ukrainian Language & Culture program in Kindergarten to Grade 3 and then can choose to continue their Ukrainian Language & Culture (ULC) studies in Grades 4-6 or take French as a Second Language (FSL).
Ukrainian is spoken by over 75 million people in the world. The Edmonton area and northeastern Alberta remain a stronghold of Ukrainian language and culture in Canada.
