School stories

French language teacher, Ms Marija Panić, and Global Perspectives teacher, Mihajlo Karna, held an interdisciplinary lesson as a way to celebrate Francophonie Month. Marking Francophonie at schools is a way to celebrate the French language and culture, and to promote its use and learning among students.

Opportunity for students to hear more about the ideas of the French Enlightenment

Year 10 and Year 11 students had an opportunity to hear more about the ideas of the French Enlightenment, which led to the development of the modern world we know today. The topic of the lesson was the reflection on democracy, as well as the importance of elections and the right to vote, and the separation of powers into legislative, executive and judicial power.

Marking Francophonie at schools can help students develop a deeper appreciation for the French language and culture. Each year it helps International School students to broaden their understanding of the wider world and its diversity.
