Italian Flagwavers

Lycée had the unique honor of welcoming Sbandieratori Sansepolcro, the Flagwavers of Sansepolcro, Italy. They regaled students at Patton Campus with amazing feats of coordination and impressed us with their depth perception. Let’s just say.. some staff here at Lycée can’t throw a ball two feet in the air and count on catching it.

According to the Sbandieratori Sansepolcro, the history of flagwavers dates back to the Middle Ages:

Europe in the late Middle Ages was often afflicted by wars and the standard-bearing officers were those that led the troops into battle. These standards, armed with blades, gradually become real weapons.

In periods of peace, the standard-bearers would meet in order to develop and improve their techniques, and over time, greater emphasis was given to perfecting the routines and the spectacle.

What a special presentation it was for everyone present!

February Recap

February was a busy month at Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans. Sure, we enjoyed classes, field trips and after school enrichment. On top of that, we also celebrated the 100th day of school and a little thing called Mardi Gras. Needless to say, we were a little busy!

All of these activities are made possible through the support and hard work of teachers, staff, parents, partners, and community members. Merci !


Krewe de Lycée is back again!

The Krewe de Lycée rolled February 6 to much fanfare, music and dancing. Lycée’s new mascot, Lou the Loup Garou, made his grand debut. The fourth grade class presented the school’s new anthem. It was an afternoon of firsts, that is for certain!

In the spirit of Mardi Gras

Halloween at the Hainkel Home

Des instantanés du Lycée Français

What happens behind the red doors on Patton Street? Visits from the French Consul, Belgian illustrators and ice buckets, that’s what! Down the road in our Audubon Zoo Science Laboratory, students learned alongside giraffes and got cozy with reptiles. It was certainly an eventful September.
