A Frightening Start to the Year: A Fire & Dramatic Night Unfolds in Monaco

In the heart of Monaco, chaos unfolded last Friday evening at the Auteuil Residence, nestled along Boulevard du Ténao. The tranquil setting was abruptly disrupted as a fire erupted in a studio, prompting a swift response from over 20 Monaco firefighters and their fleet of at least five vehicles.

As the clock struck 8 pm, the resilient residents took matters into their own hands, deploying fire extinguishers to quell the flames that had ignited in a studio on level -2 of the residence. Their efforts paved the way for the Monégasque firemen to finalize the operation, who then expertly took care of the situation with a single hose.

What to remember from AS Monaco’s 2023 year? How about yet another title in the Gambardella Cup. It’s the reward for all the work done at the Academy. AS Monaco’s young talents clinched a fifth title.

The Gambardella Cup was altogether an unforgettable journey. A fifth triumph! And after a journey solely played away!(Vénissieux, Aubagne, Nancy, Rouen, Nantes, and Pau).

Frédéric Barilaro’s proteges – accompanied by Manu Dos Santos – overcame all obstacles to reach the Stade de France. A symbol of the Academy’s talent pool, a player from each age category at the start of the season stood out in the final by scoring a goal (Tincres-Cabral for U17s, Bouabré for U19s, and Benama for the Elite Group)…

A new study wrapping up all the facts and figures about Monaco’s Education System over the past year was recently published by the Monegasque Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (IMSEE).

Overall, Monaco’s education system had 6,448 students enrolled from kindergarten to final year at the start of the 2023-2024 school year (excluding the Princess Grace Dance Academy and AS Monaco Academy). The number of students increased by 110 students, or +1.7%. 66.1% of students are in public establishments and 33.9% in private schools. Private schools saw +106 more students (i.e. +5.1%) (particularly due to the new British School of Monaco). Public schools saw only 4 more students (+0.1%). The distribution between boys and girls is balanced with 51.1% and 48.9% respectively. The student population exceeded 6,400 for the first first time since 2012-13.
