Our break week camps and summer childcare support working parents while providing a fun and stimulating environment for your child!

Break Week Camps

Break camps offer a simple, flexible and convenient solution to childcare. Your child will love these camps! They will enjoy age-appropriate activities such as field trips, wall climbing, arts and crafts, and plenty of physical activity.

The school year is divided into three trimesters. During each trimester, students receive one or two weeks of break.

In total, students receive six break weeks during the school year and 8 weeks during the summer.

To support the needs of working parents, we offer camps during every break week and a camp during the summer. Camp activities vary depending on the age of your child. Camp age groups include 3 and 4-year-olds, 5 and 6-year-olds, and 7 to 12-year-olds.

2020-2021 Camp break weeks are:

October 26 to October 20, 2020
February 22 to February 26, 2021
April 19 to April 30, 2021

Classes and activities at Lycée Louis Pasteur emphasize academic excellence, physical, intellectual and emotional balance and responsible citizenship.

Competitive Sports Teams

Is your child a budding athlete? We think they would look great in a Phoenix uniform. Phoenix Teams are Lycée Louis Pasteur’s competitive sports teams for students in Grades 7 to 9.

These teams compete against local private schools throughout the school year. Competitive sports teams include golf, badminton, basketball, cross-country, track and field and soccer.

CLIMBING WALL

Lycée Louis Pasteur is proud to be one of the only schools in Calgary with an indoor climbing wall available for students. Rock climbing tests both physical and mental abilities, making it a great activity for students as they can learn new problem-solving skills.

The Lyceée has an ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides) certified climbing gym instructor, who guides students through various climbing routes, games and activities designed to develop confidence, both on and off the wall.

Students from 3 years old to Grade 3 are instructed on the use of our state-of-the-art TRUBLUE – a fully automatic belay system allowing the participant the freedom of climbing up the wall safely without the need for a ground belayer. Students also learn basic climbing/movement techniques, helping them progress as climbers.

Students in Grade 4 and above learn “Top Rope Climbing” – a style of roped climbing where the climber is attached to a rope that leads to the top of the wall, allowing them to climb up while attached to a ground belayer below. Students learn more advanced climbing techniques – allowing them to climb more efficiently and progress up to more difficult walls/climbing routes.

All climbing equipment used at the Lycée is carefully and thoroughly inspected on a regular basis by our ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides) certified climbing instructor.

Technology at Lycée

With technology ever increasing, the Lycée is preparing students for the responsibilities of digital citizenship. The school works closely with faculty and parents to ensure students are ready for tomorrow’s digital world.

The Lycée currently has iPads and Macbooks dedicated for student use. Each grade level is distributed a number of iPads, based on need and number of students, and are used for individual and/or group work.

All classrooms are equipped with a projector & screen, Smart TV or Prometheus board.

Students in Grades 6-12 are lent a Macbook for the school year. Students in Grade 5 and below each have access to an iPad (1:1) that can be used during class time (at the teacher’s discretion), or for homework or Distance Learning (as needed).

Online safety is an important component of technology use; especially in today’s world of social media. Students take part in regular internet safety workshops that teach best practices while online, techniques to protect personal information and the importance of their digital footprint.

SOFTWARE

Parent-Teacher Communication

Seesaw is a classroom software used by the 3-year-old to Grade 5 classes to keep track of classroom work activities. Parents are given login information each year and teachers post messages (reminders, homework, photos of classwork) on the platform on a regular basis. Parents are able to see homework, school projects, and communicate directly and privately with the teacher as needed.

Student, Teacher & Parent Communication

Pronote is a French school administration software used in Grade 6 and above. The software allows administrators to create student and teachers timetables, view room availability, assign homework, track attendance, etc. It also contains parents’ contact information and is used to send out report cards. Teachers, administration, students and parents are provided with usernames and passwords at the beginning of the school year.

The library is one of Lycée’s proudest assets. Containing over 14,000 diverse publications(and growing yearly), our students have access to authors from across the globe, and every topic they can want to learn about.

The Lycée is proud to offer students a widely resourceful and comfortably accommodating space to read and learn. With nooks for private, quiet reading, as well as group sectionals – our students are able to expand their minds.

Study Abroad

When your child joins the Lycée Community, you join a prestigious network of over 500 schools in 137 countries that teach the French Ministry of Education curriculum.

Lycée students can enjoy a trimester or up to a year abroad in schools around the globe.

Studying abroad positively and unequivocally influences the career path, world-view, and self-confidence of students. It is often a defining moment in a young person’s life and continues to impact their life for years after the experience.
