In alignment with the framework of cooperation between Francophone schools in Alexandria, our institute was keen on participating in the Marathon of Saint Gabriel, which is held annually on the occasion of the feast of the school.
Along Alexandria seaside road, everybody ran for a distance of three stations for about thirty minutes.
Eighteen students participated from the preparatory stage in their sports clothes with their peers from four other Francophone schools in the race. Everyone ran which was an unfamiliar sight to the citizens of Alexandria, hoping that one day sports would become part of the daily routine of Egyptians.
Our students won the second and third places in the race and were handed over two trophies for their outstanding performance. However, real victory is represented in gaining experience and living the sport spirit.
