Back to school. After two months of vacation, it’s time to put the school bag back on your shoulders. About 12 million students are returning to school this Thursday, the 1stthis one September, without masks and with a light health protocol. This year, there is concern over the teacher recruitment crisis, despite Education Minister Papa Ndiaye’s promises to have “a teacher in front of every class”. For families, even the beginning of the new school year will pass under the sign of inflation, which does not spare even school. In its 38ᵉ annual survey on the costs of returning to the sixth form, the national federation of Families of France noted “a sharp increase of 4.25% in the costs of school supplies”.

Ukraine. French school children are not the only ones going back to school. This Thursday, Ukrainian students return to classrooms. In 2021, Ukraine had 4.2 million students.

In Kiev, now far from the front, 132,000 children are expected in grades 1.this one September, according to Mayor Vitali Klitschko. Almost half of Ukraine’s roughly 23,000 schools – 2,135 of which have been damaged in the war – have shelters equipped and will therefore be able to start the school year face-to-face, according to the Ministry of Education.

Defense. This Thursday, Australian Defense Minister Richard Marles is on an official visit to France, at the Brest naval base. The Australian official will be welcomed by his French colleague Sébastien Lecornu. This visit is all the more important because Australia has been trying to restore good relations with France since Anthony Albanese came to power. Recall that the withdrawal of the military mega-contract by Canberra deeply damaged French-Australian relations in September 2021.

Basketball. For the Blues, the European adventure begins this Thursday.

In the best case, the head of the group will play on Wednesday against Slovenia with Luka Dončić, who won a point in the semi-finals of the Olympic Games thanks to a block in the extremis from… Nicolas Batum.
