“Through participation in Concours, students develop confidence and improve their French but as well their skills in time management, listening and critical thinking. Ultimately they become more effective as communicators, capable of inspiring others,” said Diane Tijman, President of Canadian Parents for French – BC & Yukon. “We are so proud of all our Concours participants. Bravo à vous tous et toutes pour votre belle participation!” she added.

Bonne chance to Matthew Wilson who will be going on to represent BC in the upcoming National Concours d’art oratoire competition for senior secondary students in Ottawa-Gatineau, Saturday June 3rd, 2017!
