Create pleasant and practical living spaces for the school’s students and enhance the school’s superb heritage: retrace its history and open the site to the public. Concretely, this will involve inventing arrangements with the children, building furniture out of recycled materials, painting a fresco on the wall, renovating and embellishing the park of the castle, classified as a Historic Monument so that it is accessible to children and the inhabitants of the town. The volunteers will be in contact with the children every day and will be able to organize with them and the teaching team cooking, games and sports sessions or evenings to introduce cultures of the world and awake children to the notions of solidarity and civic commitment. In this context, the supervisory team will ensure that each volunteer, whatever his or her language level, will have the opportunity to exchange with the children, the educational team and the residents of the village.
