Students in French teacher Vincent Combe's ninth-grade class have been reading and discussing texts concerning ecological issues, including the bush fires that have been ravaging Australia since last year. The ninth graders were asked to express their thoughts on paper—through poetry, prose, and drawings—and many wrote moving tributes to the firefighters who have been battling the blazes. Students plan to send their reflections to the Lycée Condorcet in Sydney, with the hope that they will make their way, eventually, to some of the firefighters.
