French News

Bonjour everyone, how did you enjoy les vacances? I am sure many of you had a fantastique break away from school and work. Just before the end of Autumn Term, Arnaud McVicker, our outgoing French Captian, organised a final activity for the Junior School students that was very popular - a crêpe tossing competition. Arnaud has done a brilliant job at promoting French in the Junior School in Semester 1 and it was lovely of him to provide all we needed for a fun lunch- time activity. Every boy who took part was trying to flip a small crêpe twice in his frying pan in order to win a freddo frog. Once that was done, they could line up and try again, aiming for a triple flip, and then a quadruple flip. Arnaud's mother, Valerie, joined Ms Hooper and myself as a judge and the boys had a great time challenging them to flip higher and higher. Congratulations to Charlie Lewin from Year 5 who took out the final. Merci Arnaud and Valerie for a lovely challenge that we all enjoyed very much. Au revoir.
