French Week at Loreto Foxrock
French Week was celebrated in style this year at Loreto with a number of cultural and culinary events on offer to all.
The week kicked off with a typical French breakfast served to all Junior cycle French students. Later in the week Grace O Malley, a 1st Year student, was crowned ‘Meilleure cuisinière’ or Best French Cook for her original patisserie.
As usual, music featured high on the agenda. The French singer, Caroline Moreau, along with guitarist Lucas, managed to woo the students with a beautiful selection of French songs. The students also recorded their second French music video and were introduced to contemporary French music with Francovision.
The French quiz proved very popular with a tight battle for first place. And finally some lucky students even got to try out the traditional French games of ‘boules’ and ‘Lacrosse’ during P. E class.
Congratulations and a big thank-you to all who participated.
Vive le français!
