Les 4ème 2 présentent le Collège Chartier

Let’s present our school

Our school is called Collège Emile Chartier. It’s a rather small school in Darnétal, near Rouen, in Normandy, in the North West of France.
Emile-Auguste Chartier (1868-1951) was a French journalist and high-school teacher.
He was also a famous philosopher who wrote under the pseudonym “Alain”.
Our collège is named after him.

It opened in 1966 and it has 480 pupils from grade 6 to grade 9.
There are 35 teachers. It’s a good school with a European section.
There is one large building with 28 classrooms and a sports hall.
The school is open from 8 am to 5 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and from 8 am to 11am on Wednesdays.
We have our Wednesday afternoon off.
In our school, we can study modern languages ( English, Spanish and German ), but also classical languages ( Latin and Greek ).
We also study French, history, geography, citizenship, maths, physics, biology, technology, music and art.
We have sport twice a week.
We are lucky because our teachers organize many trips and outings.
For example, in May, all grade 6 pupils spend 3 days at the leisure park in Jumièges
