The Newfoundland and Labrador Forum is reinventing itself this winter with a virtual forum, which will be held on Thursday, February 25, 2021. We are expecting more than 300 Anglophone and Francophone students from across the province. It will be a fun-filled day of activities.
During this day 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 a bonus virtual activity 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 culture of Newfoundland and Labrador.
This fun-filled day 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 event is not to be missed. So, register now and be there!
