Students Juliet Lavigne (left) Sara-Jane Black and Gabrielle Veillettefrom from école Collines-d'or at Oak Hills, the French-speaking public school in Kamloops, were among those who gathered at the teepee in the Aboriginal centre to read books last Thursday.
The K to 7 school hosted a French book fair by Scholastic Books this past week. Reading stations in the gym were designed to create unique spaces for students' reading new books on each of the areas: camping, Indigenous, the ocean and home.
It is one of more than 40 French schools within School District 93 throughout the province. The French program teaches French as a first language, while the French immersion program teaches French as a second language.
