The academic year is coming to an end for the Class of 2022. Despite the pandemic, the school year went well allowing students and teachers to return with enthusiasm to all their usual activities, the academic ones and the more festive ones too.
The Patronage Ceremony was as always an enjoyable and enlightening event. This year, our Class Patron was a woman, the second in 22 years! Mrs. Linda Jackson, Peugeot CEO (Stellantis Group), took this opportunity to share her experience in the industry with the students and unveil the future Peugeot hybrid hypercar.
Summertime is also the time of year when many of our students leave the school benches to join companies. This year we have a record number of apprentices, accounting for 64% of the cohort. Proof, if any were needed, of the strong ties that exist between the School and the industry. We would therefore like to take the opportunity of this newsletter to draw the light upon our various industrial partnerships, that go far beyond simply organizing apprenticeships.
And to conclude, a little trip down memory lane… A guided tour of your School, a virtual one of course, so that you never forget that our doors are always wide open to you!
Finally, our IFP School Alumni Association (AAID) has a new President, Mrs. Cécile Pabian-Goyheneche (GOL 1982). We wish her success in the accomplishment of her projects, and we look forward to working with her and her team.
We will be in touch again in September with all the latest news about the Class of 2023. Enrollments are currently being finalized and it looks like it will be a very good vintage.
Happy reading and have a great summer holiday!
