History
PDF Print E-mail

The Saskatchewan Association of Teachers of French (known then as L'Association Franco-Catholique des Instituteurs de Saskatchewan or ACFIS) was organized in 1954 to promote better teaching of French and to improve professional standards.  In 1962 the membership was approximately 500 French speaking teachers in 17 locals across the province. 

The association has publications dating back to the 1960's consisting of newsletters beginning in 1964, journals in 1969 and our current Bulletin de Service beginning in 1968.

 The orginal goals of the Saskatchewan Association of Teachers of French were:

a) to improve instruction, the curriculum and teacher competence

b) to improve practice in the teaching of French by increasing members' knowledge and understanding

c) to act as a clearing house for ideas and a source of information and trends and new ideas

d) to furnish recommendations and advice to the STF Executive and its committees on matters affecting the curriculum in French, the choice of texts, methodology, the setting of examinations etc.
