The School

For many years, the kindergarten and primary school of Cairanne have been aware of environmental issues. The school introduces the children to eco-citizenship and help raise the children’s awareness by involving them in practical activities. Also, since March 2008, the town hall has set up an Environmental commission. The school had not decided on a name, so with the town hall, the teaching team chose the name of Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
