The school’s librarians organised an exhibition, funded by the Community Fund, where original drawings and prints from the albums Murmure, De la terre à la pluie and La Chenille by the Belgian author Christian Lagrange were presented. A total of 38 paintings were exhibited in the school’s salle polyvalente from October 8 to 28, 2018.
The exhibition was open to primary and secondary classes and 3 days of workshops led by the author himself took place. The topic of migration, covered in one of the books, was discussed in class by teachers and their students.
The visit of the association “Amis Sans Frontières” and three migrants who shared their experiences greatly impressed the students. The exhibition brought openness and insight to the students as well as empathy towards migrants and homeless people.
