With the start of the new school year this past September, Chiswick House School and St Martin’s College have welcomed the new French-English bilingual section.
On Tuesday, 18 November, Mr. Michel Vandepoorter paid a visit to the institution in order to ensure support for this initiative.
All of the students studying French, surrounded by their teachers (Valérie Fontayne, Daniela Aloisio et Marianne Skinner) and the management team (Mrs. Bernie Mizzi, Mr. Patrick Padovani et Mrs. Ernestina Cassar), had gathered for the occasion and showed enthusiastic interest in the French language by performing songs, poems and short plays.

The more advanced students concluded the gathering by questioning the ambassador on his stay in Malta.
The Organisation « Biblionef », partner of the French Embassy, helped provide hundreds of books, seeking to enrich the shelves of the school’s library. ( Biblionef - French Embassy operation on association website: www.biblionef.com/archives/2937 )
