Ça vaut le coup d'aller à Northland

Un séjour formidable à Northland

Si vous ne connaissez pas la région de Northland je vous conseille d'y aller. Il n'y a pas seulement de randonnées magnifiques mais on y trouve des professeurs fantastiques. Aujourd'hui j'ai rencontré Arabelle de Whangarei Girls' High School, Pollyanna de Hukerenui School et demain je vais passer du temps à Pompallier Catholic College avec Theodora. 

We are so fortunate to have so many brilliant teaching professionals within our French networks. Literally from Cape Reinga to Bluff we can find hard working teachers of French instilling passion for language learning into our young people. 

Arabelle adores her job teaching French at Whangarei Girls' High School and after having spent time in her class today I can see why. The girls loved helping each other learn and clearly adore Arabelle - two even wanted to spend interval chatting with her!
Arabelle can vouch for my macarons...invite me to your school and I'll bring you one!

Pollyanna is inspiring her combined class of - wait for it - Year 6, 7 & 8 with French language and culture!! So if you need ideas and inspiration for how to make a roaring success of your multi level classes then give her a buzz. Pollyanna's students' eyes lit up as we talked about pain au chocolat, la tour eiffel and when they would be making crêpes.

Ils font des bêtises!

Check out the snaps of my time up here in Northland. There are plenty more teachers in plenty more schools in this region for me to visit but in the meantime if you'd like to know more about what Pollyanna, Arabelle or Theodora are up to please don't hesitate to be in touch and I'll put you in contact. 


  1. Ça m'a fait trop plaisir de te rencontrer...à très bientôt ��
