Face Aux Questions Trivia Competition Highlights Students' French Language Skills

Central Kings Rural High School was buzzing with excitement on May 14 and 15 as more than 400 students in grades 7 to 12 gathered for the annual Face aux Questions French language trivia competition. Teams of students from across the region went head-to head in this “Reach for the Top”-style quiz game where all questions and answers are given in French.

Teams are composed of students in grades 7 to 12 in Core French, Integrated French, Early Immersion and Late Immersion. The competition is organized so teams of similar grades and programs compete against each other. This year featured 104 matches and over 3,300 questions!
