HSC French Beginners: L’après-midi de conversation en français

Recently, Covenant’s Year 12 French Beginners students met to practise their French Speaking skills in preparation for their HSC Speaking Exam on Saturday, 7th September. The students were examined by two teachers, Mrs O'Sullivan and myself, three French-speaking parents and one past French student, who conducted 5-minute interviews with each student in French. It was a really productive and enjoyable afternoon, with a delicious afternoon tea and great conversation in French. Our students have worked hard to develop their French speaking skills and we are very proud of their efforts.

I would like to thank our wonderful francophone parents, Patrick Lebourdais, Elisabeth Murray, Tess Osborne and former student, Eleanor Murray who made the afternoon a great success. 

Toby Jones, who left Covie last year and is planning to teach French and Spanish to high school students, intended to join us but was sick on the day.

Flavienne Higgs has also been coming to school every week over the last two years to practise French Speaking skills with our students. Un grand merci, Flavienne. We will all miss you very much. A big thank-you also to Mrs O’Sullivan for preparing the afternoon-tea and acting as an examiner.

What an amazing team of teachers, parents, students and former students working together to achieve their best to serve and glorify God!
