On Wednesday 20th May the TMC French Group will meet at The Hilltop Gallery again for a French dinner and wine tasting at 6pm.

Eva the owner of the Gallery has hired a real French chef to prepare what promises to be a truly authentic French meal to be washed down with some of Witches Falls best wines.

Cost per head is $30 for a two course meal not including drinks.

Witches Falls wines are the mountain’s only true locally grown wines including some great French varieties.

TMC’s French teacher Monsieur Stock believes in making learning French relevant to the students’ whole learning program across all subjects and that a second language cannot be learned in isolation but needs to be included in all curriculum areas and made relevant to the students’ own lives.

For example we can encourage teachers, parents and students to use the French they are learning in other subject areas and in their own lives; find ways for families to participate in the learning like encouraging students to speak some French at home; learn to appreciate French culture like watching French films on SBS; foster a love of learning not only of French but of everything.

This is why the invitation to join the French Group is extended beyond the school to the wider community and the families of our students. It is a celebration of all things French and you won’t be required to speak French. But if you want to learn some French there will be several native speakers present.

The group is ready to assist TMC students’ parents to get involved in their child’s language learning to make it more relevant and engaging for all involved.

To attend the TMC French Group dinner email Mr Stock at [email protected] by Friday 15th May.
