"Rébecca Déraspe has created a new adaptation especially for Western Canada: a voyage of discovery that sweeps us along from the beaches of Vancouver Island to the Okanagan valley, and from the skyscrapers of Vancouver to the peaks of the Rockies. This imaginative show about friendship and exploration will bring joy to audiences of all ages."
Communication Jeunesse - Thème Lire
"These workshops are themed activities based on books that last about an hour each. Always based on the same theme, we bring the students on a journey through stories and extracts of books from multiple genres of books (documentaries, comic books, novels, etc.). Each workshop is filled with participative questions that are meant to involve the students in the entertainment at the end. The teachers will receive activity suggestions and a themed bibliography in order to continue working with the students afterwards."

"With one simple prop – a loop of string – Anne holds her audience breathless as she deftly brings them into her stories, creating characters out of thin air. She intertwines multicultural tales with string figures from indigenous cultures around the globe. Anne highlights diversity, cooperation, and the life lessons embedded in both the stories and the strings. Her mischievous wit makes this show richly engaging for all ages."
Anne will be available to give shows to 1 or 2 classes at a time during the week of January 18, 2021. Teachers can sign up for evening shows for families.

The Commissioner of Official Languages of Canada (OCOL), in partnership with Canadian Parents for French, offers presentations in French immersion schools and FSL classes free of charge in order to promote linguistic duality in Canada!
We have the chance to welcome the commissioner to the Grande Prairie area again next year (Dates TBD) . His presentations will last about 60-75 minutes each and will include the following topics:
-the benefits of being bilingual;
-linguistic duality, bilingualism and official languages in Canada;
-the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and language rights in Canada.
The presentations are dynamic with some theory but also with quizzes, games and videos. They are offered entirely in French and are intended primarily for students of Grades 7 & 8 French Immersion, but are open to those in FSL classes as well. It is up to the teacher and the school to decide which students would best identify with the topics covered, but the presentations can be adapted for Grades 6-12, if desired.
