From Monday, October 26 to Friday, October 30.
The Fredericton Forum is reinventing itself this fall with a virtual forum, which will be held over a week from October 26 to 30, 2020. We are expecting more than 300 Anglophone and Francophone students from across New Brunswick. There will be one hour of activity per day during this week.
During this week of activity completely in French, students will be able to attend a virtual performance of a francophone artist, a guest speaker, in addition to participating in stimulating and interactive virtual workshops. These workshops will also allow them to discuss with professionals working in French in various fields, who will share the importance of being able to communicate in French.
The participants will have the option to register for some after school virtual activities as well, with students from other schools. 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 week will demonstrate to students that French is not just a school subject, but is also a vibrant culture that offers plenty of possibilities. This one-of-a-kind week is an event not to be missed. So, register now and be there!
