French-Spanish Partnership During the week from the 30th of March to the 7th of April, St Vincent de Paul and the students welcomed Spanish people to stay and visit France for a week. 20 French welcomed 20 Spanish at home and we will go to Spain to their place in October. During these 7 days, the Spanish went to school with their penpal, we also organized a visit to Disneyland on last Friday. Lets ask few questions to the French penpals
“Did she feel well with the family?” I think so, she was not shy.
These experiences are very important and interesting for students, because it allows them to learn about other cultures.
“Marie, how do you feel after this experience?” It was a very interesting experience. It was nice to live with a Spanish girl. “Which language did you speak at home?” We only spoke French because the Spanish girl had to improve her French. “Did you go well with her?” Yes we have similar lives, so we were very close. “Have you got the same hobbies?” Absolutely, we were listening to the same music, and also practicing the same sport : swimming.

What is Alienor ?
The 100 km of Milau.
Alienor is an association that purchases a guide dog : The dog is first and foremost a guide.
He trained 3 or 4 times per week. After work, during the week-end. We had to sell the kilometers he runs : 1 km = 10 euros
With him the landscape changes. There are no more obstacles , the dog avoids , bypasses , reports the curb , crosses the street, drives his master in crosswalks to a bus stop, metro etc. He learned locations to spot patterns that gained through a very rigorous education of over two years : patience, gentleness and trust are the key words. Yes, we can truly say that the dog is the companion guide by which and through which any single movement is performed. It means freedom. Alienor is a project who was created by Mr Guerin, our head teacher who has been running for one year and a half every week end to get money for each miles he runs. By Arthur, Jocelyn, LĂŠa
