We introduced the French language and culture as our choice for language learning at Mordialloc Beach Primary School this year. Discovering more and more about what it means to be French and its culture with our students, MBPS strives to deliver authentic and meaningful language learning experiences, engaging in the culture embedded within a language. We aim to inspire an interest in the French speaking culture, people and places, providing skills across all learning domains, that will endure and encourage our students to continue with a lifelong love for learning languages and respect for other cultures.
At Mordialloc Beach Primary School, French is taught once a fortnight in forty-five minute sessions from Foundation to Year 6, equating up to 15 hours of language learning in a year. Students at Mordialloc Beach Primary School, through our French program, moving from Foundation to Year 6 will have the opportunity to experience up to 105 hours of foreign language learning.
FRENCH DAY 2018
MBPS celebrates all that is French and our love for discovering this beautiful language and culture. Students dressed up as famous French personages, cultural icons and colours for a costume competition, and participated in different French intercultural activities for the whole day, run by the classroom teachers. The students experience crepe making, impressionist art making using Claude Monet as their muse, google map navigating the streets of Paris and a special performance my French Mime, Monsieur Cirque. Bravo tout le monde!
