Francophonie Month: CECCE Students Test their Knowledge of Francophone Culture

March 3, 2017, OTTAWA - Grade 5 Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) students kicked Francophonie Month off in style with Folie Furieuse, an interactive team game.

The first part of the event took place yesterday at École secondaire catholique Pierre-Savard, and the second is happening today at Collège catholique Mer Bleue. Teams of eight grade 5 students face off in a friendly competition that’s all about discovering and developing an appreciation for francophone artists.

Throughout the day, students answer quiz questions and participate in lip sync competitions, putting on performances that they have been practicing for the past few weeks. Judges select winners based on whether the singers’ lip movements match the words and give points for presentation (costumes, sets, instruments and moves) and overall performance (originality, creativity, humour, expression and ability to capture the audience’s attention).  

According to CECCE Director of Education Réjean Sirois, “this is a win for all of the participants. Students enjoy an enriching experience and have lots of fun testing their knowledge of francophone culture and discovering new artists and new ways to construct their cultural identity.”

CECCE Chair Johanne Lacombe is delighted with the event. “This gathering gives students from different schools an opportunity to get together and strengthen their sense of connection to and pride in our wonderful francophone Catholic community.”

To prepare for the event, students spent several months learning about artists and playing games based on their careers and songs. Students will use the material presented in class to play one of the main event games hosted by high school students at the March 3 gathering at Collège catholique Mer Bleue. Students and staff are all very excited about Folie furieuse!

Together for
success and well-being of each student
