Associations and cultural institutions

Francophone Association of Southern Sydney

In 2007 a group of mothers started to meet regularly to show their children they were not the only ones speaking French. The Francophone Association of Southern Sydney Inc. (FASS) was later formed as a result of an increasing demand for a local French speaking point of contact. FASS aims to support the language and cultures of all francophone countries and territories represented in southern Sydney.

We are based in the Sutherland Shire but our membership includes a group in the Illawarra Region. We welcome participation from anyone interested in joining us.


FANS is a dynamic not-for-profit, self-funded parent association that was created in 1998 with a clear purpose:   

● Educate the children of francophone families in French
● Maintain a family’s native culture and language while living in Australia 
● Share that language and culture with the community                


The New South Wales Association of French Teachers (NAFT) was formed in 1999. Its founding president was Jacqueline Meunier with the vice-president being Jacquie Hilmer. From humble beginnings, NAFT has grown steadily to a sizeable and dynamic professional association thanks to the dedication of numerous members who have thus contributed to its success.

NAFT was born of a need for solidarity and collaboration within the body of French teachers in New South Wales. Its aims were to provide a forum for the dissemination of ideas and a support network in the areas of professional development, methodology, pedagogy and curriculum planning, in particular for the benefit of country teachers. Its first newsletter was published in February 2000 and its first end-of-year conference was held in October 2000.
