FIS student wins a writing contest launched from Space

On 3rd January 2017, the French astronaut Thomas Pesquet launched a creative writing contest from Space.

The idea was to continue the work of the famous French author Antoine de Saint-Exupery and write in French the visit of “ the Little Prince” on an 8th planet.

In February, Mme Gauthier enrolled the Y8 students (advanced level) in the contest amongst 8400 students around the world. 50 texts were shortlisted and spilt in two categories: France and International (25 each). Finally, in each category, 5 texts were chosen and the results announced on 6th April 2017.

We are delighted to announce that Paul-Louis Drouffe, Y8B,  is one of the prize winners! His text is also one of the two favourites of Thomas Pesquet who read it from Space!
