The French Society: Fascinating Presentations

The French Society: Fascinating Presentations

Just before the Easter break, our Upper Sixth pupils delivered a series of fascinating presentations on their ‘independent research projects’, with topics as varied as: The Macron government, Genocide in Rwanda, Franco-Algerian relations, nuclear energy , death penalty, IVF laws in France and le Verlan.

This term, the French Society started with a talk by guest speaker , Miss Silvero on ‘Deportation of French Jewish children and the role of the Vichy government during WWII’ – a topic directly relevant to the Upper Sixth programme and also useful for their study of the novel, Un sac de billes by Joseph Joffo. Then, following on from the class topic on the role of women in French society, our Lower Sixth pupils Abbi, Anna and Olivia gave an insightful talk on Marie Curie, followed by questions from the group- en français, bien sûr! Bravo!

We look forward to our next meeting which promises to be just as exciting.
