At BCATML's Celebrating Languages 2015 Conference, we unveiled the official First Peoples Principles of Learning poster in French during the Core French Curriculum workshop and Annual General Meeting. Delegates heralded this announcement and appreciatively applauded the look of the final poster.
The French translation was recently approved by the First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC). Many thanks go to Marie-Claude Tremblay of the BCTF French Services Branch and FNESC for making this a reality. The First Peoples Principles of Learning were translated many years ago but the French translation was never put into a beautiful poster like its English counterpart.
Now that the poster has been approved for French, it will be possible for the Principles of Learning to be translated into the other languages that are taught in BC's schools. We hope that BCATML's Language Representatives will be able to assist in this collaboration. The timing of this poster is serendipitous with the release of the draft Core French curriculum which imbues the Principles throughout.
We invite you to download this poster in either format (left) and proudly display it in your classrooms, staff rooms, library and hallways.
