TRENTON, Ont (CP) Breadner school at the Cana- dian Forces Base here is suc- cessfully operating a program for teaching French that has resulted in bihngualism even in the kindergarten The school was started three years ago by tne defence department and has served as a model for later programs on other service bases In addition to regular schooling, the school has a section devoted to French studies "It's the only school of its kind m this said Fraser Rose, principal of the primary school "When it was set up, it was meant just for Francophone students, so that service personnel with French- Canadian background could have an alternative to Anglophone schools However, the program was opened to English-speaking children as well and since its introduction the number of students has
