The launch of the Australian Association of French English Bilingual Schools (AAFEBS) was held at Telopea Park School in Canberra on Tuesday 8 September 2015. The Australian Association of French English Bilingual Schools (AAFEBS) is an organisation of Primary and Secondary French-English bilingual schools in Australia, most of which are accredited by the French Ministry of National Education or recognised through a Label “France Education”. There are currently 12 AAFEBS schools throughout Australia.

AAFEB’s member schools educate bilingual, bicultural students, whose academic excellence prepares them for entrance to the finest universities on the world’s stage. The level of French immersion and the number of subjects taught in English or French vary by school and grade level. The curriculum taught in these schools is enriched by aspects of French and Australian culture and educational practice.

The association aims to promote French-English bilingual education in Australia, and share knowledge, experience and expertise in bilingual education with the support of the Embassy of France in Australia.For further information: education.canberra-amba@diplomatie.gouv.fr
