France

Bastille Day festivities

Yesterday was a special day at the lycée and for France. It marked one of the most symbolic moments of the French Revolution – the end of the regime of absolute monarchy, as well as the one year anniversary of the terrorist attack on the Promenade des Anglais. This year in Nice, France’s President, Emmanuel Macron visited Nice to speak at the memorial service for the victims of last year’s attack and students were able to listen.

After morning courses, the students walked together to the port for a beautiful cruise to Villefranche Bay. On our return to the lycée, we stopped for refreshing ice-cream. The highlight of the day though was a Fashion Show, where students constructed outfits from paper and other materials. The team that included Ashton, Anna, Sofia, Malak and modelled by Alina were the night’s winners.
