In collaboration with North Vancouver CPF Branch, École Boundary Elementary hosted its second annual French Bingo Night this past Spring! With a fresh twist on an old fashioned game, École Boundary Elementary is building community while promoting Canada’s two official languages – Français et Anglais !
On Thursday, April 28th, École Boundary Elementary opened its doors to students in Grades 4 through 7 and their families for an evening of Bingo en Français! The French Team at École Boundary Elementary see this event as being instrumental in developing enthusiasm and engagement for students studying French in both Core and Late French Immersion programs at the school. A unique opportunity to invite community members, incoming Grade 6 Late French Immersion students for the 2016/2017 year and families of current École Boundary Elementary students to the school. This Bingo evening has become apart of our school culture in only two years!
This event bring everyone together – teachers and students promoting it enthusiastically; the school’s Canadian Parents for French Representative working tirelessly to make sure it all came together; Parents Advisory Council putting together a food and drinks for the concession along with the many schools who generously loaned tables and chairs in order to make the event successful!
As a fundraiser, the event raised $ 945 for the Core and Late French Immersion programs at École Boundary Elementary. All the behind-the-scenes planning and preparation made for a smooth and successful evening.
