EU@YourSchool is a project of the European Union (EU) Delegation and EU Member States Embassies that is supported by the Singapore Ministry of Education. Now in its third edition, it is running from 21 March to 22 July 2022. Ambassadors of the EU member states represented in Singapore, together with senior diplomats from these missions, are visiting schools to share their insights about the EU and their country engagement with Singapore. This year’s theme is focused on green recovery, climate change, sustainability and digitalization.
France kicked off the first of two visits on 6 April 2022 with a visit to Catholic High School. Mrs Anne Denis-Blanchardon, Deputy Head of Mission at the Embassy of France, was warmly welcomed by the school’s management including the Principal, Mr. Poh Chun Leck and other Heads of Department. Her audience of about 80 boys who attended in person and the wider cohort of 1,200 students who attended digitally were aged 13 to 16. They were very engaged and asked questions on French society and culture, governance and sustainability as well as French cuisine (especially the baguette!).
The next visit is to St Joseph’s Institution by HE Mr Marc Abensour, Ambassador of France to Singapore, on 1 July 2022.
