The Australian Association of French English Bilingual Schools (AAFEBS) had a network meeting in Melbourne on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 October. The AAFEBS is an organisation of Primary and Secondary French-English bilingual schools in Australia. The association aims to promote French-English bilingual education in Australia, and share knowledge, experience and expertise in bilingual education with the support of the Embassy of France in Australia.
The professional learning workshop on the 27 October was the opportunity to gather 20 teachers from all over Australia in Camberwell Primary School, a LabelFrancEducation accredited school.
After this meeting was held the first AGM of the association in Auburn High School, with a meeting of the principals of all schools.
Ms Myriam Boisbouvier-Wylie held at the end of the day a function at The Honorary Consulate of France in Melbourne, in the honour of the AAFEBS. This was a good opportunity for the French teachers in Australia to meet each other.
During this function, Maria Karvouni, principal of the Auburn High School and vice-president and secreatry of the AAFEBS gave a speech to thank all the people present at the function and to remind the projects held and the goals aimed by the AAFEBS.
