The Old School in Les Valayans

The small 1930s town hall houses an old school which invites visitors on a nostalgic trip back into the past of the hamlet of Les Valayans and its inhabitants. It evokes the atmosphere of the village school, with its oak desks and their built-in faience ink wells, purple ink, pen holders and nibs, the teacher’s desk, a wood-burning stove, geography maps, etc. This was the era of blotting paper and the prestigious school leaving certificate, a time when some would receive reward points while others would be forced to wear the dunce’s cap.
