LET'S GO

After several weeks of nail-biting delays, children are now in and learning at the Lycee Francais Jean Mermoz in Al Qouz, Dubai.

The school has now launched with classes ecole maternelle through to ecole elementaire (ages three to 11 years-old) and has 153 students.

Thanks to the numerous irregular windows throughout the school, each room is light, bright and welcoming.

The classrooms are equipped with i3 boards, shared tech resources and, interestingly, many have tables designed by the school itself which enable right and left handed students to work side-by-side.

The library boasts over 500 English and 500 Arabic titles, with around 1,000 French books.  A further 4,000+ French books are expected to arrive sometime later in October.

The school is equipped with two small pools for developing water safety, plus two sports halls and several multi-activity rooms. Outside there's a play area with equipment from Kontika and a small Astroturf five-aside football pitch.

The remainder of the building, housing the Secondary section is set for completion in November. However, for now the Nursery and Elementary sections are complete and fully operational.

 The school currently employs 11 home room teachers, three Arabic/Islamic teachers, three English teachers and six teaching assistants.

The Lycee Francais Jean Mermoz still has available places or the 2017/18 academic year. For more information please contact: 056 3388 223 or email: info@lfjm.education
