On Monday 8 March, the Year 7 students were treated to a French movie excursion to Brisbane. The purpose of the excursion was to compliment their studies of French speaking countries and cultures around the world.
Each year, Alliance Francaise de Brisbane, the French cultural centre of Brisbane, organises the French Film Festival to offer Australian viewers the chance of watching popular French movies in a cinema setting.
This year, we watched a movie called Poly, which was a beautiful story of a relationship between a girl, Cécile, and a Shetland pony called Poly. The film offered a travel back to the 1960s and was set against the breathtaking landscapes of the Cévennes region in south-central France.
The excursion offered a fun and heartfelt experience to the students as they plunged into the many exciting and thrilling adventures that took place while rescuing Poly from the cruel circus conditions.
We also stopped at the Newstead Park for lunch on the way back to College. What a nice day it was!
