Every year, the Teacher Of French Association organises a conference for French Teachers called “Le Stage à la Plage“. This full-day event is the most important professional development opportunity for French teachers in WA. It provides primary, secondary, independent and pre-service teachers with teaching strategies and hands-on activities for use in the classroom, helps teachers developing ideas for promoting the teaching of French and supports teachers with the implementation of the curriculum. This social event is also a great opportunity to grow your network, meet new colleagues and share experiences with teachers from all over Western Australia.
TOFAWA Conference 2020 Postponed
The TOFAWA annual teacher conference, ‘Le Stage à la plage’, usually takes place in May but has been postponed to later in the year due to Covid-19. We will announce the new date on our Facebook page once we are confident that we can run a safe event for our members on that date.
The 2019 Conference
In 2019, we welcomed Dr. GianFranco Conti to the spectacular Fremantle Sailing Club where he delighted WA’s French Teachers with some great presentations and workshops. Here are some highlights of the day captured by our committee members.
