Organised by Monegasque Road Safety, the Monegasque Final of the Road Education Exercise took place on Monday, June 25, at the Recreation Centre of the Route de la Turbie, involving 36 children from classes CM1 and CM2 schools in the Principality.
Participants in the final passed a written test and then rode their bicycles on a short route lined with road signs that they may meet in real road conditions. Each of them was followed by a policeman who noted any infringements.
The trophies awarded to the laureates were offered by the Monaco Automobile Club, the National Education, Youth and Sports Department and the Monegasque Road Safety Department. The best school cup went to St. Charles School.
The first three winners then represented Monaco at the Departmental Finals held in Saint-Laurent du Var on June 27, the best of them ranking 21st out of 50.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
Come the next academic year, the ISM will be offering an exciting new diploma for students wishing to pursue career-related learning.
