18 March 2016
On 18 and 21 March, EIFA students participated in the Press Week, organised by Mrs Catherine Faure and Mrs Chrissie Olivi, our History-Geography and French teachers. This year’s theme was: “Freedom of speech, can it be learnt?!”
Many events took place during these two days. Among them was the visit of the BBC studios, which thrilled the Year 5 and the Senior School students. The journalists Patricia Loison and Loïc de la Mornais from France Télévisions, as well as Sonia Delesalle-Stolper from the newspaper Libération, hosted an exciting conference on Friday night about freedom of speech for our parents, teachers and students.
Students from Y2 to Y5 also had the opportunity to meet Gwenaëlle Boulet, chief editor of the magazine Astrapi. They learned about journalists’ roles trough various workshops as Editorial’s favourites or the News. Y6 students were not left behind as Sonia Delesalle-Stolper showed them Le P’tit Libé. Finally, the Senior School students had a debate on Brexit with Patricia Loison and learned how to write a press dispatch with Sonia Delesalle-Stolper.
We would like to thank the journalists who helped making these two days, unforgettable moments for our students.
