A language school for French bilingual children celebrated 25 years of service in Milton Keynes on Saturday.

Les Poussins, based at Stantonbury Campus on Saturday mornings, welcomed Olivier Cadic Member of the French Senate and Yves Letournel from the French Embassy to mark the special occasion.

Iain Stewart, MP for Milton Keynes South, and Councillor Alex Walker for Stantonbury, also joined in on the fun with the French guests to celebrate the supplementary school’s success.

Mr Stewart said: “I was so impressed with what I saw on Saturday.

“The whole set up is fantastic, the children are speaking at such a high standard so young and the teachers are clearly passionate and dedicated.

“It is also great to see people from places such as Bedford, Luton and Hemel Hempstead coming all the way to MK to attend the school.

“I would like to thank them again for inviting me and wish them the very best for the future.”

Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Keith McLean and the Mayoress Vicki McLean, gave out medals to students who had been with the school for more than 15 years.

“For our 25 anniversary we were pleased to welcome city VIPS,” said Florence Burey-Abraham, chair of Les Poussins.

“The celebrations went very well.”

The 180 pupils attend every Saturday morning to learn French and have fun. They are all bilingual and are aged between one and 17 years old.
