April 16, 2018 - All grades 7 to 12 French Immersion students at St. Benedict Catholic School were using their French speaking and listening skills in the Imax Theatre at Science North this week.

The students were there to watch Météo Extreme 3D. The 2016 National Geographic film explores the collapse of glaciers, massive wildfires and deadly tornadoes.

This event is part of a Heritage Fund grant from the federal government this year to support French culture and heritage.

French Immersion teacher, Lisa Adler says “Thanks to the funding, the event gave the students a wonderful opportunity to embrace their bilingualism and celebrate French culture. It was enriching and encouraged them to learn French in a new context.”

Other events planned include a French café in the new Learning Commons at the school.
