A word about the Kids Summer Classes from the Coordinator of Studies:

The School Year 2021-2022 is soon coming to an end. Summer is finally here and children are saying goodbye to their teachers. On July 2nd It’ll also be the time for us to say goodbye to children who are taking classes on Saturdays at the Lycée Marcel Pagnol, hoping to see them again in September! In the meantime, we don’t want to leave them aside, and we offer to take good care of them during the summer break! If you believe your children need intensive French classes over the summer, it’s time to register them to our new summer camp! The camps will take place in Wuse, in one of our partner School: Tender Years Preparatory School. They can register now either 2 or 4 weeks, from July 18th to August 12th. The camp is Manday to Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm. Don’t miss your opportunity, space is limited… Learn French with Fun!

"When boxers come into the gym, they reach a sanctuary. There, female boxers encounter a place for empowerment, where they can build their mind, body and soul. Witnessing the strength of Lagos boxers allows one to get a glimpse of the countless possibilities opened to women."
