LYCÉE FRANCO-ARABE

Vintage plate 2018

Founded in 1952, this high school was a sign of reconciliation between the French and the Abéchois; every class had to receive an Arabic-speaking hour daily. Unfortunately, this attempt at conciliation was too late, because the Koranic schools, the only ones frequented by the majority of the population, had long turned to Egypt and Sudan. In 1944, Sudanese Faki Taha had created Am (Koranic school) in Am Soueïgo. Despite the expulsion of the founder to the Sudan, other religious centres were soon set up on this model. Currently, there are about centres, compared to about eight secular schools. The Franco-Arab lyceum, now frequented by teenagers, apaise rivalries between Muslims and Christians.
