On Friday, April 4, French Immersion students in School District 5 participated in Regional Concours d’art Oratoire. The event was held at the school district office.
Students from Grades 6-12 were invited to attend from schools in Cranbrook and Fernie. Participation consisted of nine students from Fernie Secondary School from Grades 7, 8 and 9, who prepared their own speeches. First place winners are invited to attend Provincial Concours D’Art Oratoire in Surrey on May 3.
Leah Heavey in Grade 7 and Jodi Stemberger in Grade 9 are planning on participating at the provincal level in Surrey, B.C., in May. Way to go, Leah and Jodi, and good luck!
Thanks to the volunteer judges: Mme. Pelletier, Mme. Beurskens and M. Lurol.
Also thanks to Canadian Parents for French volunteers Susie Silversides, Pamela Franklin-Cooper and Katrin Powell.
