2021 in Review

Below is a recap of our main 2021 events and activities. We had a busy year!

French Language Award

Congratulations to St Ursula's College Year 12 student Rachel Broad who was awarded the inaugural Alliance Française CQ French Language Award in 2021.

We have created and sponsored this new award in 2021 to recognise the highest achieving Year 12 student and to strengthen our positive relationship with the College. St Ursula’s is the only high school offering French in the region. It is our intention to sponsor this Award annually.

French Song Workshop

Thanks to the very talented Pauline Maudy for running a French Song Workshop at Customs House as part of the Rockhampton River Festival in October.

Defi Inter Alliances

In August, some students and Members took part in an online competition / quiz between several Alliances Françaises in Australia. Congrats to our local winners who took part in the national final!

Bastille Day Lunch!

In July, we celebrated Bastille Day, with a very enjoyable French themed lunch at the Waterline Restaurant.

Vive le Tour de France!

Also in July, we ran 3 online sessions presenting the most famous regions visited by the Tour de France 2021.

Welcome Nais!

In May, we welcomed Nais to the team. Nais is our first intern, working from France with us for 6 months on various marketing and cultural projects.

Visit of l’Ambassadeur de France

Some Members had the pleasure of meeting with His Excellency Mr Jean-Pierre Thebault, Ambassador of France to Australia in May, when he came to Beef 2021 in Rockhampton. The Ambassador also met with breeders of French cattle breeds and agricultural tech companies.

Anzac Presentation

In April, AFCQ Member John Phelan kindly delivered an excellent presentation about Australians in France in WW1. We learnt that 300,000 Australians were in France at some time during WW1, where they lived and what they did.
