Form 4 language pupils welcomed French actors from Onatti Productions who gave an entertaining performance of ‘La Maison Hantée (The Haunted House). The play was entirely in French and was about two hikers who stayed at a haunted house after a stormy journey.
Head of French, Jennifer Dook said, “The performance was interactive and the part which included participation from members of the audience was really amusing. Everyone did a super job. The play was more language exposure for the students, deepening their understanding of the French language. It was lovely to see some of Form 6 and 7 pupils coming to watch it too.”
At Oakham, French is a core subject studied by nearly all students to GCSE and by many beyond. It is one of the most popular subjects in the Upper School with about 70 students studying French at A-level or in the International Baccalaureate.
