After the dramatic gathering of the French community to show their “Je Suis Charlie” solidarity, it was time to have French fun once more for French speakers, students and Francophones alike over the past weekend.

Alliance Francaise held an Open Afternoon with wines and crepes to herald the new academic year at its Young Street premises on Friday. Teachers, students and supporters enjoyed the delightful ambiance under umbrellas.

Meanwhile, L’Agence Consulaire de France d’Adelaide under the patronage of honorary French Consul, Sue Crafter, celebrated Galette des Rois  at the Trinity Baptist Church, Colonel Light Gardens on Sunday, February 1.Helpers serve Galette des Rois

After last year’s vague de chaleur (heatwave of over 40 degrees), Sunday was a cool 22 degrees, ensuring a big crowd of French people at the church’s community hall.  Sue Crafter gave a warm welcome in perfect French and thanked everyone – including about 40 children – for attending the event.  A real coffee machine and a lineup of plenty of plates of the specially prepared Galette des Rois ensured guests had a “taste” of an important traditional French celebration.
