On Tuesday, 24th May, students studying French in four Secondary schools; St Joseph Sliema, Kullegg San Benedettu, Kullegg San Gorg Preca and San Andrea School, together with their teachers were invited to the French Ambassador’s Residence in Zebbug for a prize-giving ceremony.
They received certificates and gifts for winning the competition “French is Fun”, a video-competition organized by the Association des Professeurs de Français de Malte (APFM).
This educational and fun competition targeted students in Forms 3, 4 and 5 in all Secondary schools.
Upon arrival, the students were greeted by Her Excellency the French Ambassador Béatrice Le Fraper du Hellen and Mr. Laurent Croset, Cultural Counselor. Students and teachers were then taken on a tour of the garden of the residence before viewing the winning videos.
