My camera is back and working so I have been able, at the last minute, to take some pictures of a school. I did consider a school of fish, but they wouldn't stay still long enough, and I don't know enough about schools of art or architecture, so it's back to education.
This is the courtyard of our local school which students attend from the ages for 11 to 16. It is called the collège. Before that they attend the école and afterwards they go on to the lycée in the "big" town. As you can see, it's a very old building and once upon a time it used to be a monastery built in the 12th century for the monks who founded the town.
I doubt whether this tower is in everyday use, though it may be of course, but they do have superb views across the river and beyond.
On the far side of the courtyard with the Romanesque church which the monks built. All public schools are uncompromisingly secular so it's a little ironic that this one is physically and historically so closely associated with the church.
This is my exceedingly late entry for this week's Photo Hunt. Visit TNchick's site where you can find more people who have joined in.
