They will all take place in the Cotonne School, more modern and renamed Rosa Parks. A few days before the start, the workers are busy preparing everything for the arrival of the students. François Thollot director of the school is satisfied because that "the design of the majority of the rooms was reflected by the agents of the town hall."
