On September 5, a total of 5,696 students started school or college in Monaco, including 4,355 in public education and 1,341 in the private sector.
Mrs Isabelle Bonnal, Commissioner General in charge of the Department of National Education, Youth and Sports, told a press conference last Friday that the department’s roadmap focusses on two aims, innovation and the enhancement of well-being at school.
There will be a number of innovations in the teaching of languages, particularly in the teaching of English. The Monegasque language will now be compulsory in the 3rd class.
In terms of wellbeing, there will be a new way of evaluation in primary school, an early and more serene school-college transition, the development of inclusive education, and continued implementation of the Anti-Harassment and Violence Act in the school environment.
Needless to say, digital transition and eco-responsibility will be at the core of school life.
