The foundation stone for the future Lycée François d’Assise Nicolas Barré was laid on Tuesday, October 4, by Prince Albert, accompanied by Princess Charlene. The Archbishop of Monaco, Msgr Barsi, blessed the stone and the future building, which will be completed by the last quarter of 2018. The building will have a capacity of 750 students.

In accordance with the Prince’s wishes, the entire operation is part of a sustainable development approach, and will be certified “High Environmental Quality”. This will also mean that construction work must be low nuisance for nearby properties and road users in the vicinity.

Also present at the ceremony were Government Counsellors and other leading figures in the Principality, including Ms Isabelle Bonnal, the Director of Education, Youth and Sports and Mr Cherif Jahlan, the Project’s Architect.
