International School students win EU competition

Elise, Mallaury, Marion, Emma, Maissane, Stella, Sami, Kevin and Paul—they won their ticket to Istanbul.
Every year since 1987, in schools throughout Europe, thousands of students get involved in the European Youth Parliament (EYP). Regional chapters of EYP organize "model parliament" sessions, where students aged 15-17 get acquainted with committee work, the resolution approval process, General Assembly meetings and the inner workings of the institution.

During the week-end of 26-28 February, the Lycée Militaire in Aix-en-Provence hosted such a session. Like actual European deputés, delegates from nine lycées (secondary schools) of the PACA region competed, discussing such issues as regional development, illegal downloading from the Internet or the standing of the European Union in the concert of nations.

At the end of the three-day session, a winner was proclaimed. And the winner was ... the nine-student delegation from the International School, Manosque!

Accompanied by Katherine Llorca, their Social Science and Economics teacher, Elise, Mallaury, Marion, Emma, Maissane, Stella, Sami, Kevin and Paul will represent the PACA region at the International Youth Forum that is organized from 16-21 May in Istanbul—bridging cultures in the city that bridges two continents.
