Terribly British! - Celebrating Anglo Culture at the LFA

Written by Eloïse Andre, SIA 2nde

On the 14th of March, the entire Anglophone section of the LFA united in order to prepare the traditional British Day.

In order to popularize our very small section, all of us, 2nde, 1ère and even T-ale  baked 12 scones each, which amounted to approximately 400 scones! But by the end of recess time in the morning these delicious scones were all gone. As if they had been starved for weeks, the LFA students stormed into the hall, fought their way to the scones and the battle ended with everyone savouring their jam-covered scones.              

  As for the rest of the day, we, students had prepared stands where kids could come during lunch time and learn about different English-speaking countries.      

Here are some examples of what was happening at the actual stands told by the 2nde SIA:

 
 
  • South Africa: We had a little drawing contest and students were supposed to draw animals coming from South Africa.
  •  I learned that there are 12 official languages in South Africa.
  •    Canada: We had a lot of fun, with a mini-hockey table and lots of Canadian flags and specialties (such as hockey)
  • Australia: We had books and objects from Australia: boomerang and books on animals, landscapes, pictures and clothing.
  • USA: We taught them about history, sports, and politics and even entertained them with fun facts about the USA…

      In total there were 7 countries represented: South Africa, Canada, 
the United Kingdom (with Wales and Scotland), Ireland, Australia, India and the USA.

 

Today was a day for SIA students to show their pride of being a part of this section by allowing us to spread the English culture.

Thank you to the LFA for encouraging this incredible British day!
