About Us

Bienvenue !

The French Bilingual Association is an Australian not-for-profit association based in Northern Melbourne. Its mission is to promote and champion French bilingualism in Melbourne.
The French Bilingual Association has more than 100 member families living in a bilingual context.

Our current objectives

  • To support the French-English Bilingual Immersion Program launched in 2020 at Fitzroy Primary School;
  • To provide an environment which offers French-speaking education for francophone/bilingual children and their parents;
  • To organise social events for the French-speaking community for all families.

Our activities

playgroup

The Saturday School is for children between 3 and 12 years old from francophone/bilingual families. The aim of the School is to encourage the desire and pleasure of communicating in French with new friends in a warm environment. Qualified teachers offer a program focused on Francophone culture and language development through activities that are both structured and fun.

Mini-Bleus

A chance for younger children (primarily from 0 to 3) to play and interact in French with people (children and adults) outside their family circle. It is also a great opportunity for their parents and carers to meet and converse in French with other members of the bilingual/ French-speaking community.

Saturday School

An initiation to soccer in French for girls and boys aged from 4 to 9 years old, outdoor in Fitzroy. We also regularly organise outings to see Soccer games from the Australian A-League.
