A Day of Cultural Connection: French Consul’s Visit to L’Ecole de Battersea


We recently had the privilege of hosting the French Consul, Mr. Samer Melki. This special visit marked a day of cultural exchange, strengthening the ties between our bilingual school and the vibrant traditions of France.

Upon arrival, Mr. Melki was warmly welcomed by our Principal and Heads. Together, they explored our bilingual pre-primary and primary classes, engaging in insightful discussions about the nuanced dynamics of the French-British relationship. This hands-on experience provided the Consul with a glimpse into our unique educational environment.

An important highlight was Mr. Melki’s meeting with the founders and proprietors of our school. This exchange allowed him to understand the vision and philosophy that define L’Ecole de Battersea, fostering a deeper connection between our educational institution and the French Consulate.

Our pupils, ever-curious, eagerly welcomed the Consul, seizing the opportunity to learn about his role in the UK!
