School enrolmentsBy BERNIE BELLAN
Current enrollments at the two principal schools that offer some form of Jewish education are now available.
Both Gray Academy and the Hebrew Bilingual program at Brock Corydon have seen their enrollments remain quite steady from last year. Gray Academy's enrollment remains at 466, while Brock Corydon's is 219 - almost the same as it was in 2017-18.



Information for Gray Academy was made available on that school's Facebook page. Here is how enrollment figures were reported on Gray Academy's Facebook page:
"We are proud to report that enrollment for the 2018-19 school year is 466 students. While 16 students moved with their families to other cities in Canada, the US, and Israel, and 29 students graduated from the class of ‘18, Gray Academy’s retention rate has increased to a healthy 94% (the highest its been in the past five years). It is excellent news for our school that 94% of the available students have returned. We also proudly welcomed over 70 new students across every single grade from JK to Grade 12. We have seen our Grade 7 program once again become a major entry point in addition to our traditional entry points of JK & Kindergarten.
"Our students, faculty, staff, and parents continue to strengthen our school community and enrollment. Thank you for choosing Gray Academy and investing in an independent Jewish day school education. Your commitment to our school is a commitment to strengthening Winnipeg’s Jewish and greater community."

Brock Corydon's enrolment was reported to us by Raedan Carter, who works for the Winnipeg School Division. (We haven't been allowed to speak directly with Ara Morris, principal of Brock Corydon for three years now.) Here is what Raedan wrote:
"219 out of 321 students are in the Hebrew Bilingual Language Program at Brock Corydon."
