THE DAYS SCHOOL, THE SPIRIT OF TRANSMISSION

© Sandrine Boyer Engel

1094 pupils from primary (816), middle school (218), and high school (60) will participate in the two school days in the village of Solitaire.

Accompanied by their teachers, a program to discover running, sailing and meetings with skippers are organized. Common to many events organized in Deauville, the City implements these school days to promote access by young people to different sports or cultural worlds. Throughout its sailing school, it has chosen throughout the year to support the training of young people on living spaces. She was particularly sensitive to the Solitaire bizuths program which allows young skippers to go solo on her course for the first time.

They will sometimes come from far away to enjoy the village of La Solitaire: Deauvillais establishments and nearby towns of course (Saint Arnoult, Tourgéville, Dives-sur-Mer, Lisieux) but also Pont Audemer, Deville-les Rouen, Eu, Evreux , Bernay or La Ferté Macé.

THE "SAILING AND MATHS" PROGRAM

Developing boating involves a training and accessibility component. In Deauville, the City, the sailing school of the Deauville Yacht Club and the National Union of School Sport worked together and wove a year-round learning framework for the young people of the school. A program that takes into account all ages and all the activities offered by the coast. A program led by the city's sports educators and high school teachers who are keen to open all doors to their students. The teachers took sailing to the end by combining sea trips with mathematics and physics. After a theoretical course on vectors (speed and wind), the students put into practice teaching on the boat. In 2009, the program "Sailing and math" was at the request of the Rectorate imposed on all pupils of 2nd and 1st years of scientific section of the lycée of Deauville. For the latter, the objective is to learn to prepare its route and to race in total autonomy.

High school students can go further. As part of a new sports section which opened at the start of the school year, they can choose to prepare for a lifesaving diploma. This requires them 3 hours of extra sport per week in their school schedule. A partnership with the City has been concluded so that young graduates can take advantage of the beach lifeguards in summer. This program could lead to departmental meetings on the theme of rescue and rescue at sea.
