(Courtesy SD67)

In Penticton and Summerland, the very popular late French immersion program begins in grade six.

It's so popular, there is not enough room to accommodate everyone.

There are three classes in Penticton and one in Summerland and for September there's a waiting list of 23 students.

Diana Fort lives in Summerland where her daughter is on the wait list.
Bruce Johnson is the vice-chair of the Okanagan Skaha board of education.
