Compétition Francophonie 2019: Raconter une histoire avec des phylactères (speech bubbles)

Six Secondary schools participated in the Francophonie Competition organised by the Alliance Française de Canberra and the French Embassy.

The secondary competition was to illustrate ‘phylactère’, one the 10 words chosen for the 2019 Francophonie celebration. The theme of this year’s celebration was: ‘Le français sous toutes les formes’.

The origin of  the word ‘phylactère’ (phylactery) is Ancient Greek, meaning ‘guard’.   The phylactery was originally a leather box where biblical scrolls were kept. The modern meaning of a phylactère is a speech bubble.

The opening ceremony of the Francophonie Day  was on Friday 21 March, Sophie Frawley (Year 9) won the first prize for her comic strip.
