Today we said farewell to our two French trainees who have been on a visit to the school for the last 3 weeks as part of their teacher training at the Université de Poitiers. Marion Vaury has been in Mrs Donaghy’s 2nd Class and Yannick Wannin in Mrs Clinton’s 3rd Class, assisting the teachers and delivering lessons and teaching some basic French. Both trainees took a very active part in.
Everyone at St Francis NS is so proud of our 3rd class pupils, Mia, who donated her 16 inch long ponytail to the Rapunzel Foundation last Friday. Mia’s mum explained that Mia had been growing her hair since the age of 3, but really wanted to give her hair towards a wig for someone who has long term hair loss. I takes between 20 to 25 ponytails to make just.
