French Poetry Competition

Each year students from all over Victoria participate in the Berthe Mouchette Poetry Competition run by the Alliance Francaise.

De La Salle students studying French from Years 9–11 also participate and the results received so far are excellent. The College would like to recognise three Year 9 students and one Year 10 student for receiving a 100% score… a perfect recital. The boys from Year 9 are Jordan Burns, Jacob Ellul and Nicholas Warren. From Year 10 we congratulate Sebastian Young.

This is an excellent effort and on August 10 they will compete again against other state finalists in order to win prizes offered by Alliance Francaise. Well done to those participants and also to all the boys who took part in the competition. We wish the Year 11 students “bonne chance”, as they will participate on 18 August
