Minister of the Interior Patrice Cellario, together with Archbishop of Monaco Monsignor Barsi, Vice President of the National Council Brigitte Boccone-Pagès, Director of National Education, Youth and Sports Isabelle Bonnal, as well as senior personalities and high school principals of Principality High Schools, welcomed the 75 students who obtained the distinction ‘Très Bien’ at the Technical and Hotel High School.

“I am happy to celebrate your success and that of the Monegasque education system,” said Minister Patrice Cellario. “Do not forget that you are ambassadors and will become leaders in the area of your studies.”.

Mr. Cellario also acknowledged the “remarkable” standard of the graduates this year, and the number of students who obtained a ‘Bien’ or ‘Très Bien’ mention.

It was revealed last week that the overall success rate at the baccalaureate reached, in the first round, 96.8% for the general series, technological and professional, with 435 candidates and 321 mentions.
