Le Fête Nationale / Bastille Day

Written by cpsglobalblog

“Learning a foreign language and the culture that goes with it is one of the most useful things we can do to broaden the empathy and imaginative sympathy and cultural outlook of children.” -Michael Gove

CPS Global School, Thirumazhisai ensures that children do not stop with just learning a language but they also paves way to embrace its culture. With this pandemic situation and unexpected circumstances, we have made “Le Fête Nationale” virtually possible. The whole school was dressed in “tricolore” to bring in the spirit of “Bastille.” 

To understand the significance and reason behind why every francophone celebrates this day, there were enthralling activities planned along with group discussions. Students of CAIE 1- 4 awed the famous themed fireworks of the Eiffel Tower and made origami book marks coloring in tricolor. CAIE 4 and 5 students had a virtual presentation on the importance and tradition of Bastille Day, also brought out their favorite aspects of France in the form of Doodle which they loved calling it the “FROODLE.” Students of CAIE 7 and 8 had discussions on the history of the Bastille Day and wrote essays on their interests in celebrating this great day. Either virtual or actual, “Le Fête Nationale” is no different to us. “Tous solidaire”
