After five months of no school due to the pandemic, Ecole du Village opened the doors on August 24th to its 134 students for the new school year!
Due to the lack of electricity and limited economic resources on the island, distance learning is not an option for kids in Ile-a-Vache. Instead, armed with optimism and caution and following protocols such as wearing masks, practicing social distance, and regularly washing hands, Ecole du Village started in-person classes.
Even though things are a little different this year, students and teachers are very excited to start the new year, reunite with friends, and above all, continue with their education goals. Their smiles might be hidden behind those masks, but we can surely see the spark in their eyes!
We wish them a happy, safe, and productive new school year.
