On Tuesday December 19th nearly 300 students from 7 District high schools (Laval High, Crescent Collegiate, Carbonear Collegiate, Ascension Collegiate, Roncalli Central High, Queen Elizabeth Regional High School and O’Donel High ) attended the St. John’s French for the Future Forum.
Hosted in over 15 cities across Canada, French for the Future’s local forums unite FSL (French Second Language) and FFL (French First Language) high school students for the opportunity to discover and experience the cultural and professional value of continuing a bilingual education. The invitation to attend the forum is extended to a different group of schools each year. The objectives of the local forums are to:
- provide students with a positive environment in which to practice their French;
- educate students on the career possibilities and potential that bilingualism brings;
- encourage students to continue their studies in French; and,
- celebrate the French language and francophone culture.
Students attend creative and informative workshops, and meet bilingual professionals.
The French for the Future message is: keep up on your French throughout high school and university, because no matter which career you choose to pursue, speaking French will always be an asset.
