On Friday, April 20, nearly twenty third-grade students from Fontvieille were received by President Stéphane Valeri and Marc Mourou, President of the Commission for Education and Youth, at the National Council building on the Rock.
The children took their places in the seats of the elected representatives from which they followed a tailored presentation of the role and the functioning of the Assembly.
This followed a very lively exchange between elected officials and the children on how to vote, on the role of the National Councillors, on the operation of the building itself, on the laws passed by the assembly, as well as on the work of the professionals who assist the elected representatives on a daily basis.
The pupils asked many questions and wanted to find out how to become a member of the National Council and even President of the Assembly. Several children announced their intention to want to become National Councillors when they are older.
