Août 2019

Cher/e Community Member,

After three years spent at the Alliance Française d’Adélaïde, it is time for me to go back to France. Thank you to all of you - students, staff members, committee members, partners and friends - for your continued trust and support. The Alliance Française d’Adélaïde, Adelaide and South Australia all have a very special place in my heart.

I am also very happy to announce that Ms. Raphaëlle Delaunay will be the new director of the Alliance Française d’Adélaïde, starting in September. I wish her every happiness and success in her endeavours.

Director of the Alliance Française d'Adélaïde
