A French school, Lycée Français Louis Pasteur, Victoria Island, Lagos recently held an information session with parents of primary school pupils to explain the school system and elaborate on its French curriculum, making comparison with other international curricula. It also highlighted its bilingual teaching.
The Principal, Mr. Alain Berna, said the session was designed to give parents insights into how the French curriculum and education system works, adding that the increasingly competitive nature of the world today has made it more imperative that the youths are exposed to a comprehensive set of values towards preparing them for their future.
Highlighting the features of the French educational system, he said it promotes strong positive values such as freedom, equality, togetherness, respect, spirit of justice, solidarity, freedom of speech, openness, creative spirit, among others. “Pupils that pass through Lycée Français are trained to develop curiosity and courage with which they can excel in all of their chosen endeavours. At Lycée Français, parents can be assured of a teaching language that is rich, varied and efficient.”
