The Canadian Parents for French Concours d’art oratoire (French public speaking competition) is a long-standing tradition in our school district. On April 5th over 30 French Immersion and FSL students from across North Vancouver participated in the North Vancouver School District Concours d’art oratoire http://learningservicesnvsd44.edublogs.org/2012/04/06/students-speak-out-en-francais-concours-dart-oratoire-2012/
Winners from the district competition then went on to compete with students from across BC in the Provincial Concours d’art oratoire held at SFU Surrey Campus on Saturday May 5th 2012.
We are proud of the effort and dedication of all students who competed in both the district and provincial competitions. The speeches were well written and well presented to an audience of the students’ peers, teachers and parents.
