CPF Ontario is pleased to offer the 7th edition of the Conférence sur les chemins de la réussite bilingue / Pathways to Bilingual Success Conference to over 300 French Second Language students in grades 7 to 9 on October 3-4, 2018 at the Radisson Hotel Sudbury.
With retention as an identified priority in many of the Ministry Action Plans, the theme of our event will focus on “staying in French to Grade 12”, highlighting experiential learning opportunities and the benefits of official language bilingualism.
Students will listen to our panel of speakers, participate in an engaging plenary session, experience an interactive workshop session, and network with exhibitors specializing in exchanges, work programs, post-secondary opportunities, and more. The conference on October 3rd is for Core French Students, with French Immersion students participating on October 4th. To view images of our past conference, click here.
