The International School Manosque, for children whose parents work for the ITER project, will open its doors in September 2007. The school will also be open to children from the region around Manosque who would like to follow an international curriculum. Pending the construction of a building, the school will be accommodated in Lycée Les Iscles in Manosque, where from the beginning of the 2007 school year six language sections will be operational: English, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, and Italian.
Depending on demand, other languages will be made available at a later date. The registration has been opened, and further information on the curriculum can be found in the Registration Brochure. Further information concerning the structure from September 2007 will soon be available on the Website.
The International School is managed by Jean-Pierre Hardy, who is currently working together with representatives of the ITER Parents and representatives of the Region to optimize the arrangements at the school, such as the size and composition of classes, the languages taught, and the transportation issues. Parents have elected their representatives for interfacing with the educational Authoroties. On a meeting held on 4 June in the Château Cadarache, Mr. Hardy responded to 35 detailed questions by the parents on the curriculum and the organization of the school. return to Newsline #11
