It started life on land belonging to the parish church on which it was hoping to build its own premises in time for the start of the next school year. Unfortunately this was not possible due to a lack of funds, and the school moved into a rented hall that was subdivided by partitions into three teaching areas. The following year, with support from a number of Clubs in Europe and from other local and international benefactors, work began on the construction of four purpose-built classrooms.
Since then, the school has continued to grow and now comprises both a nursery and primary school. In addition to its coordinating role at the Ecole des Hirondelles, the Club puts on plays for the local population as a means of encouraging families to send their children to the school.
The Ecole des Hirondelles has been extremely successful and is top-ranked in the country. This in turn has led local authorities to provide land free of charge for the school to expand still further.
