10,000 students from across British Columbia competed, 264 made the provincial finals, and 3 students from Delta took home top awards in this year’s pan-provincial French public speaking competition, Concours d’art oratoire.
“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.
This year marked the 34th anniversary of the Canadian Parents for French BC & Yukon sponsored Concours d’art oratoire. The provincial finals were hosted Saturday, May 6th at SFU Surrey.
