The AFTV Language Immersion Weekend was a huge success, enjoyed by all participants who agreed unanimously it is a wonderful way to spend a weekend attending workshops on a variety of French teaching topics, sharing ideas, speaking only French all weekend, at the beautiful Bellinzona Guest House in Hepburn Springs.
The Primary Network attendees had a great night sharing their resources with like minded educators! What a hard-working and talented group it is!
After a chilly start to the morning of Sunday 30 April, 40 of us (well really, 39 plus 1 dog) gathered outside Door 17 at The Lume Melbourne to meet Monet and Friends and experience their adventure into French Impressionism, featuring works by Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Morisot, Cassatt, Sisley, Signac, Cézanne, Caillebotte, Lautrec… sights, sounds, tastes and aromas combining to offer a unique chance to enter into their world and to see art in a new light, where light was such an integral component of their works.
An AFTV / Forum de la Francophonie Initiative
AFTV and Forum de la Francophonie launched the 1st Book Club for French Teachers in Victoria during Francophonie Week. We loved collaborating with [Charlotte Mackay] to launch our Club Littéraire pour les enseignants.
Hook, Lines & Sync-er was a great opportunity for Primary and Middle years teachers to get together and re-think some of the ways in which French is delivered and ‘received’ in Victorian schools.
Our presenters, Nathalie Marchand and Lucie Dickens welcomed 42 attendees to our PL Nailing it on Units 1 and 3 French on Friday 17 February at the Catholic Leadership Centre.
Thank you to all for the professional collaboration and rich discussion around how to design units of work to meet the expected outcomes, how to design SACs and for sharing ideas.
Stay tuned for details on a similar PL on unit 2 and 4 mid year !
The 40th Anniversary and AGM of the AFTV was celebrated at the Catholic Learning Centre on Friday 10 February. Being a special occasion, both Past Presidents and Life Members of the AFTV were invited to attend as well as AFTV members of schools in all 3 sectors. It was a very well attended and happy meeting where participants had plenty of opportunities to catch up with colleagues, some of whom they hadn’t seen for a long time.
Congratulations to everyone involved in making the AFTV/FATFA 2022 Conference, such a great success!!
Attendance numbers exceeded expectations, food was superb and plentiful, plenary and session presenters thought-provoking, wellness sessions unique, relaxing and a lot of fun, brilliant venue, very interesting exhibitor stands!
During the September school holidays, from Saturday 17 September to Monday 26 September, twelve dedicated French teachers spent ten days discovering the rich and diverse culture of New Caledonia. The Study Tour was a huge success, helped by the endless sunshine throughout the trip.
UNE MATINÉE POUR S'ENTRAÎNER...offers your Year 12 French students the opportunity to practise for their oral exam.
This year’s events were a big success, both the face-to-face and online iterations. Positive feedback from teachers, coaches and students was very heart-warming.
