Scottish Schools celebrate French Language in Edinburgh

Total’s UK E&P Division was proud to support the ‘Concours de la Francophonie’, a competition run by the Institut Français d’Ecosse*.

Now in its second year, the competition, which encourages schools to submit a creative piece in French attracted submissions from all over Scotland.

Around 90 pupils from three winning schools attended the award ceremony at the University of Edinburgh on 17 March.  Hosted by Emmanuel Cocher, Consul General of France in Edinburgh and Glasgow, the award was preceded by fun activities in French, led by teachers from the Institut Français d’Ecosse. The event is a celebration of ‘la Francophonie’ which is recognised worldwide on 20 March.

One of the winning schools, Mid Yell Junior School (Shetland), winners for the S1-S3 category were unable to attend the event and will receive a special visit from the Institut Français who will deliver a French language workshop and the award to the school.
