8 March - French Literature Project


Thanks to the generosity of the PA, we were able to purchase some French literary works so as to build up a mini French library in school. These consisted of a recent bestseller and Holocaust memoir, Et tu n’es pas revenu (Marceline Loridan-Ivens), a graphic novel set in the Ivory Coast: Aya de Yopougon (Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie), and the famous short story Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Several students have already benefitted from these works: Shrinidhi Prakash (Year 12) has produced a powerful piece of prose entitled L’Exhumation, written in the style of Camus, inspired by Loridan-Ivens’ work, and Joshua Selfridge (Year 11) has written an insightful and fascinating article analysing the differences between oral and written forms of French, based on the graphic novel.

We hope to publish these works in the near future in a language journal, and we also intend to create resources based on the works purchased for younger students in the school.
