International Francophonie Day
As an international school that represents a host of different cultures, we as ISCT will be celebrating International Francophonie Day this year on the 23rd of March.
What is it?
International Francophonie Day is the celebration of the French language and its cultures across the world. Celebration of this day can be seen within the 88 member states of the international organization, La Francophonie. This organization works to promote the diversity of the French language, while advocating for democracy and human rights.

How is ISCT celebrating?
This year, there has been a great collaboration across the school board. With help and direction from ISCT’s wonderful French teaching team, the 168 French students in our school have worked hard to create an exhibition celebrating French music, customs, cultures and food with a focus on the French linguistic differences found around the globe. This exhibition can be viewed in the library and corridor below the main staircase. In addition to educational exploration, our French teachers have worked to allow the students of ISCT to have a culinary experience too, by collaborating with artisanal crêpe maker, Marine, to bring the famous ‘Crêpe Town’ to us!

These delicious sweet and savory French crêpes (with the famous Galette bretonne), will be available for preorder on the website below, created by one of our Year 12’s, Seojin. Crepes will be R45 each and can be preordered up until the 16th of March to be collected in the loggia at Crêpe Town’s fully equipped crepe station. Money to be given in to students’ MFL teachers or class tutors.
