Another successful evening to conclude a year of cultural activities in the learning of French with

Sunday 4th of December was a very special convivial evening with the participation of every one present, creating a unique microcosm of community spirit. This was and is only possible due to the many talented and dedicated groups of students.

It was a most joyous celebration of French culture through a vast array of items, including favourite French songs: La Mer de Charles Trenet, Je vole de Louane Emera, as well as the traditional: Mon beau sapin – all sung whole-heartedly during the course of the evening, uplifting soul and spirit. A confidently-recited fable of Jean de la Fontaine, – Le Corbeau et le Renard – as well as a delightfully executed piece of music of Debussy were very appreciated by all present bringing another dimension to the evening.

The diverting pace was kept buzzing with 3 skits in French, arranged, written and presented by the students themselves, showcasing their hidden talents as actors. The added props and convincing acting brought much laughter and entertainment to the audience. Of course we can’t have a French soirée without food and wine! Tables were beautifully laden with delectable food from savoury to sweet, to dazzle the eyes, titillate the palate and replenish the soul.

A memorable soirée indeed with the help and participation of everyone. Merci beaucoup.
