BFA French Students Produce “Le Petit Prince” for Burlington Peers

Target 3. Flexible Learning Environments – FWSU will maximize flexible learning environments by redefining the school day, promoting learning experiences that extend beyond the school classroom, and fostering creativity, innovation, and differentiated learning opportunities for all.

Action Step – Develop opportunities for students to collaborate, innovate, create and conceptualize in all learning settings.


BFA French students have enjoyed their studies of French culture and language. The highlight of the end of the school year was the student production of Le Petit Prince, a popular child’s book in France. The French IV class at BFA Fairfax spent countless hours in the past 45 days to read, write, memorize, rehearse and perform the student version of the book.


BFA French teacher Madame Karine Poulin collaborated with French teacher Madame Farineau at Edmunds Middle School in Burlington. Together they arranged for BFA’s French Theatre Group to perform for French 2 classes at Edmunds.


On June 7th, BFA French 4 students performed the 17 minute play for their peers. Madame Poulin shared, “I am so proud of this accomplishment! The students were totally committed to the success of this enterprise, and even some of the most shy students proved to be fine French actors!”


Now that the school year is coming to an end, the class will also perform for their peers in other BFA French classes before their finals.


Congratulations to the students on their fine French production!
