On Thursday, November 2nd, a conference on the Olympic Games took place at LCS for students preparing for the AEFE eloquence competition: "Amassadeurs et ambassadrices en herbe" (Budding Ambassadors and Ambassadresses).
This conference was led by Aurélien Ros, a history-geography teacher, and aimed to explain to the students the challenges of this year's theme: "1924-2024, The Olympic and Paralympic Games, a unifying, inclusive, and sustainable event?"
It was an opportunity to sweep through the history of Olympism, its geopolitical and ideological challenges.
The students were able to consolidate their already substantial knowledge and pose their questions about this international event set to take place in Paris next year.
The conference illustrated how the Olympics have become an event that is both popular and closely watched by nations worldwide. The thirty students in attendance were able to leave with more arguments to enrich their thinking and better prepare their speeches for this competition, the school final of which is scheduled for February. A significant moment not to be missed!
