For 3 years, students and teachers have been in Algeco® a little further in the courtyard. The inauguration of this new school building was eagerly awaited by teachers, parents and children.

“On Thursday, my children couldn’t sit still, they were really happy to go to this new school. I told them: “calm down, it’s a new school, it’s not a new attraction”, explains a mother, laughing.

“After 3 years spent in Algeco®, we opened the school to the children with emotion. Each teacher received the students in the courtyard. The children did not move they were amazed. I’m happy with the result, there was a real collaboration with the town hall, the company Maître cube, and the teaching team who really gave their all. »

In a speech of his own, Pierre Bédier, the president of the departmental council insists on this important participation of the Department.

You are in a city with limited means with little or no industry and therefore little or no fiscal resources. It is therefore essential for you that we can help you with the contribution of rich cities and this is the responsibility of the departmental council. Which explains this funding that has existed nowhere else. And if the law had allowed us to do more, we would have done it
