This Friday, December 15th, was strong with very rewarding meetings! The team was able to meet and discuss with our MP Mr Pieyre-Alexandre Anglade during his visit to Amsterdam as well as with our senator Ms Claudine Lepage at the Senate in Paris.
Thanks to them for their support!
Thanks to Mr. Olivier Cadic, Senator representing the French people established outside France for organizing with the Foundation “A French College in Amsterdam” a breakfast meeting to present the project.
Thanks to Ms Anne Genoud, General Consulate of France in Amsterdam, Mr Xavier Rey, First Counselor of the French Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and Ms Anne-Emmanuelle Grossi, Cultural Advisor to the French Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands from their presence.
Thanks to the companies for having been present for this event and Nicolas Béchu (Group Page) for having shown the difficulties encountered by companies in the recruitment of French senior expatriates for lack of education.

The senator received us kindly and supports our project.
The foundation “UN COLLEGE FRANCAIS A AMSTERDAM”
On Wednesday, June 7, 2017 we went to the notary to sign the statutes of our foundation “Un Collège français à Amsterdam”.
Thanks to your donations (past and future), we formalized the school to move forward in our efforts. Thus, we will be able to target companies potentially interested in sponsoring a French secondary school in Amsterdam. As a result, they will be able to deduct taxes from their donations.
If you have any good contacts in companies possibly interested by the project, do not hesitate to let us know.
Feel free to help us financially – there is no small contribution:
Our 6 runners took up the challenge: they all managed to finish the marathon, without injury. Congratulations and THANKS to them and those who supported them.
Always with the aim of raising funds, we have a team of runners who have registered for the Stockholm marathon. Do not hesitate to sponsor them. All funds will go directly to the Foundation’s funding.
Thank you again for your help.
It is now time to give us a real boost! We need some funding to create the foundation and to be able to continue our project.
Thus, we understand that everyone can not – still – reserve a place for his child by contributing 250 €, or even that everyone does not feel particularly concerned by the imminent opening of a secondary school in Amsterdam.
However we would like to be able to count on a small participation of those whom the project challenges or interests. If everyone gives 10, 20, 40 euros it could really allow us to move faster.
Thanks in advance – and do not forget that there is no small contribution 😉
If you want to know more do not hesitate to come to question us.
