The students of this school need to be fit because sometimes, they can practise 6 or 7 days a week. The fact that they practice that much makes a big difference with their talents. This year, the cadet basketball team won all their games.

Three mornings a week, we do musculation before school. We also have two studying periods of an hour each.” said Youma Diallo. She was in Volleyball concentration two years ago, for her secondary 4 and last year, for her secondary 5.
