Each year, Port Melbourne celebrates all that we learn in French and our love for discovering a new language and culture in a special day in the month of July, as close as possible to the French national celebration of le 14 juillet (Bastille Day).
Bastille Day celebrations will be held on Thursday 18th July.
Students are encouraged to come to school dressed in French-themed costumes or int he French colours (Blue, White and Red). A $1 donation will support the work of Les Medecins Sans Frontieres.
Students participate in different French intercultural activities for the whole day run by their classroom teachers. The day ends with a celebration concert of all our language learning and achievements.
Parents, family and friends are invited to join us in the hall for our French inspired concert at 2:45pm – 3:15pm.
The PFA support the French department with their Bastille Day celebrations by selling croissants. Orders will be accepted via Qkr! for $1 each until Friday 12th July at 1:00pm, order as many as you like!
Is French Day a school fundraiser?
No. It is all about celebrating the French culture, language and cuisine.
Do I have to dress up?
No. Students do not have to dress up. School uniform is then required.
Do students need usual packed lunch?
Yes. Even though the PFA has provided per-purchased croissants, it will only be a sample and not adequate for a full lunch.
