TOFA conference

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.

In 2024, the Stage à la plage will be integrated into the bi-annual National FATFA conference which will be held in Perth on November 22-23 in collaboration with TOFA.
