Description

This spring, the Fredericton Local Forum is reinventing itself with a virtual format. It will be held over three days, starting on 21st and finishing on April 23th, 2021. More than 300 Anglophone and Francophone students from the Ottawa region will participate in activities that will take place daily.

The activities will be completely in French. Students will have the chance to attend a performance by a French-speaking artist, listen to a guest-speaker and to participate in stimulating and interactive virtual workshops. These workshops will allow them, among other things, to discuss with professionals working in French in various fields. This will allow them to see the importance of being able to communicate in French outside their classroom.

Students will also have the opportunity to register for virtual sessions, where they will have the chance to interact with students from several schools across the province. Through these fun activities, participants will bond with young people from the other linguistic community and will be able to discover an overview of the Francophone and Acadian culture of New Brunswick.

This memorable three days will demonstrate to students that French is not just a school subject, but is also a vibrant culture that offers an ocean of possibilities. This one of a kind week of activities is not to be missed. So, register now and be there!
