CAN YOU HELP?  SEEKING GOOD CONDITIONED FRENCH BOOKS AND MAGAZINES.

Do you have any French books or magazines available that might be suitable for students (all ages from K-12)? Canadian Parents for French - Saanich are collecting good condition, French books and magazines and supplying them to our local schools to encourage more leisure-time reading in French!

If you can help please drop off your book donations at the school office for our CPF representatives to collect and deliver.  Thanking you for your support.

Books give you a happiness boost

Did you know:
Reading can make you stress less?

Losing yourself in a book may be the ultimate in relaxation. Researchers at the University of Sussex found that reading proved to be the biggest stress buster of all, beating out listening to music, taking a walk, and drinking a cup of tea, reducing stress by as much as 68 percent. This is good news for your health and happiness as stress can zap energy and even set you up for disease-risk. What’s more, just 6 minutes was enough to slow heart rate and ease muscle tension.
