All the schools in the village celebrate on the same day, both maternelle (3-5 yr olds) and primaire (6-10 yr olds). The kids get to wear fancy dress to school and finish early for various parties in the afternoon.
For our daughter, at maternelle, their partying is restricted to the school grounds. They have dancing, the teachers perform skits and then they gorge themselves on junk food before being sent home in various states of sugar frenzy.
I can't wait until I get to do that.
The three primary schools celebrated by coming together in the village centre square, where they sang songs. This is the view toward Mount St Victoire from the square. Not too shabby.
After that a DJ took over and each child was handed a big bag of confetti and told to have at it. As you could imagine, it was fantastic - 300 children all throwing confetti at each other and their teachers. Heaven.
After that they all headed back to school for snacks and fun in the playground. Sounds like a perfect Friday afternoon to me.
Have a great week everyone!
