10,000 students from across British Columbia competed, 264 made the provincial finals, and 8 students from North Vancouver took home top awards in this year’s pan-provincial French public-speaking competition, Concours d’art oratoire, Saturday, May 6th at SFU Surrey.
“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!
On April 11, 2017, North Vancouver students took to the podium to demonstrate their French language skills as part of the annual Concours d’art oratoire, hosted by the North Vancouver School District and the North Vancouver chapter of Canadian Parents for French. Every year, students from throughout the school district take part in this well recognized French public speaking competition. Students hone their oral French and public speaking skills to compete first at the school level and then, for the winners from the schools, at the district finals. District level winners will then earn a spot to compete at provincials (May 6, 2017 in Surrey, BC). Secondary level students who win top spots at Provincials will travel to the national capital area to compete for scholarships and other prizes in the CPF’s National Concours competition on June 3 in Gatineau, Quebec.

Félicitations to all the competitors and un grand merci to all the parents, NVSD teachers, CPF volunteers and sponsors who help make Concours a very special event every year!
