Breakfast with Santa: Fun in French outside the classroom


Core french, French Immersion, Cultural Activities, District-level initiative, Fraser Valley Region, 2016-2017


Breakfast with Santa early in December, which included students from two elementary schools, in collaboration with the District, PAC and staff. Students had breakfast, choir, music, fun activities and a French Santa came to speak to the children in French and share great stories with them. Intermediate / Middle school students helped with some of the activities and the parents prepared the breakfast...great activity!


Students had fun in French outside the classroom; Fluency in a language facilitates our interactions with others;  Awareness of other cultures helps us discover our own culture and build our own identity; Making connections between personal experiences and the experiences of others can help us to better understand and respond to a message;  Effective collaboration relies on clear, respectful communication.
