French Movie Spring Madness!
CPF Nova Scotia in collaboration with Cineplex Cinemas will be presenting “Tout en haut du monde”! Produced in 2015, it is the story of a young 19th century Russian girl embarking on an adventure-filled quest to find her grandfather at the North Pole. This French-Danish animated film was the winner of a Golden Butterfly for Best Animated Feature Film at the International Film Festival for Children and Youth awards when it premiered.

Canadian Parents for French, Nova Scotia is sponsoring school tour by award-winning duo Razzmatazz for Kids to HRCE, SRCE and CBVRCE schools. Sandy and Thomas will be performing in the HRCE from May 6-10 and May 13-17 in CBVRCE and SRCE.
A Razzmatazz Concert is a terrific way to introduce or reinforce students’ exposure to French language and music. Students get a feel for the sound of the language and the traditional styles of Acadian music. These professional musicians are experts at drawing in the students, keeping them on the edge of their seats, encouraging them to sing, making them laugh, and getting them to clap to ever-changing rhythms. The songs range from upbeat to whisper soft; from breakneck speed to bluesy riffs; from step dancing tunes to lullabies, and back again. Razzmatazz effortlessly conducts the audience through times of high excitement to the pin-dropping silence of anticipation. The students see their peers making the little wooden “limberjacks” dance, and they see Thomas playing the harmonica plus three sets of wooden spoons at once, to end the show with a flourish!
