The European experience continues : French students visited the European Parliament last week!
27 students from Collège Calmette and Guérin in Ecueillé went to Verdun, Strasbourg and the Struthof from April 24 to April 26 2017 with their History teacher and their English teacher.
In Strasbourg, they visited the European Parliament and learnt how the MEPs take decisions, write European laws and vote. They realised how programmes like Erasmus+ are decided, developed and funded with the help of the 28 countries of the European Union.
The French students also understood why the European Union was created as a means to avoid wars like the First and the Second World Wars. They saw the trenches and the soldiers tombs in Verdun (WW1) and they visited the Struthof Natzweiler concentration camp (WW2).
