Commemoration - 60 years of the Elysée Treaty
On 22 January, Germany and France celebrated the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Elysée Treaty. The 3ème Deutsch+ students created posters to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Elysée Treaty. In small groups, the students retraced the history of Franco-German relations: this Tuesday, they presented to their classmates the history that preceded the signing of the friendship treaty, the treaty itself, the Franco-German Youth Office, the Sauzay and Voltaire exchange programmes and the signing of the Treaty of Aachen. The posters are on display at the Lycée.
As part of the Deutsch+ programme, some of the 6ème students wrote and presented haiku, very short poems of Japanese origin, celebrating the ephemeral nature of things and the sensations they evoke. Each poem was complemented by a drawing which was afterwards presented to their colleagues.
We would like to thank the teachers and students for this special moment which reminds us how important it is to preserve the memory.
