Latin Immersion Comes to Lord Tweedsmuir

Philo_medievThe Surrey School Board is pleased to announce that the District’s first ever Latin Immersion Program is starting this September at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary School. All incoming Grade 8 students will receive instruction in Latin for all classes.  All Grade 9 students will have Latin instruction in all the core academic classes.  Meanwhile students on the Graduation Program will have Latin instruction in subjects chosen at random. In the cases of Provincially examinable courses, the Provincial Exam will also be written in Latin. When interviewed, Lord Tweedsmuir Principal Buggie was very excited about the plan, exclaiming, “vero nihil verius.” Then he added, “quidquid Latine dictum sit altum videtur.”
