Curriculum Goals

The goals of Ukrainian bilingual programs in Saskatchewan are:

  • to develop a functional use of the Ukrainian language in the areas of understanding, speaking, reading and writing, within the range of the pupil's experience in the language

  • to develop an understanding and appreciation of cultural attitudes and values, as these are reflected in the language, the customs and the traditions of people of Ukrainian origin

  • to facilitate the development of positive attitudes towards various languages and cultures.

The ultimate expectation is that pupils in bilingual Ukrainian-English classes develop the knowledge, the skills and the attitudes expected of pupils in unilingual classes while simultaneously acquiring fluency in both languages. ​
