March 26, 2012 - At St. Mary’s School the student body and the teachers were buzzing on Franco Fun Day. The day started with our grades 4, 5 and 6 students teaching the kindergarten to grade 3 students a few words “survival words” in French. “The purpose of this exercise was to give the students the skills they needed to meet and greet people in French,” said student Maverick Noel.

The whole school community was then challenged to speak French as often as possible during the day. Prizes were award to the teachers and students who demonstrated the most enthusiasm. The day ended with the whole school community sharing in some French croissants with butter, prepared by Ms. Bortolotti and her French students.

This was an experience that opened up our student’s minds to other cultures and languages. “We are fortunate to live in a country that is a ,” said Ms. Bortolotti.. Franco Fun Day gave the school the school community an opportunity to learn French can be fun and that French speaking skills will open doors for children in their future.
