The boxes arrived Tuesday morning.

Amélie (

), a teacher in a primary school in Angers (Maine-et-Loire), was not present at the time of their reception, but her colleagues quickly informed her.

“They told me that we had received educational booklets, all with a 2 euro coin, on the Olympic Games.

We didn't really understand, no one knew.

» The instructions arrived a few hours later in the email boxes of the establishment directors.

In this email, which we were able to consult, the Ministry of National Education asks its recipients to keep the boxes “in complete safety” until the official launch of the “national system”.

The educational booklets will then be distributed to all students from CP to CM2, i.e. 4 million schoolchildren, and their teachers, with a commemorative coin struck by the Paris Mint.

Entitled “At the heart of the Games”, the booklets include a text signed Emmanuel Macron and another from current Prime Minister Gabriel Attal, Minister of Education at the time of printing.
