Why four sheep were enrolled as students in a school

It’s a story that made them go crazy. Or rather sheep in this case. In Moselle, parents and elected officials from the communes of Hermelange, Nitting and Voyer learned with astonishment a few weeks ago that the fifth class of the intercommunal school was threatened with closure at the start of the school year.

With only 94 students registered, the group does not reach the threshold of 98 registered required by National Education to maintain a fifth class open. A situation deemed “ubiquitous” by the mayor of Voyer who recalled on RTL that in 2021, this fifth class had been opened with “only” 90 students.

Students “counted like sheep”

As a snub to the National Education services, the decision was therefore taken at the beginning of May to register four sheep belonging to a local farmer and also a parent of a student in order to reach the required threshold. “Since our children are counted like sheep, we might as well push the absurdity of the reasoning to the end,” indicate the parents of the students in the columns of The Republican East.

In the forms, four sheep, named John Deere, Marguerite Duprés, Phil Tondu and Valériane Deschamps, were therefore registered for the next school year and authorized by the mayor to spend a day in the schoolyard. They have since returned to their sheepfold, now awaiting, like the parents and elected officials, the final decision of the academic inspection.
