Opening Ceremony of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Municipal Swimming Pool - La Turbie - 12.06.2017

On 12 June, La Turbie’s swimming pool was baptized “Princess Charlene of Monaco Municipal Swimming Pool”, in the presence of HSH Prince Albert II, the Mayor of La Turbie, Mr. Jean-Jacques Raffaele and his town council, the Mayors of Eze – Mr. Stéphane Cherki – and Peille – Mr. Cyril Piazza -, Mr. Eric Musso, Mrs. Agnès Falco, Secretary General of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation and Mrs. Dominique Lagier, Vice President of the French Swimming Federation and its PACA branch.

In this way, La Turbie’s municipality wants to honour and pay homage to the wonderful mission accomplished each year, in June, at the initiative of Princess Charlene of Monaco and with Her Foundation’s support: teach the children from La Turbie and the neighboring towns CPR techniques in order to save someone from drowning.

On the occasion of this pleasant and friendly event, around 50 schoolchildren from the La Turbie, Eze and Peille schools dived in the pool to show what they learnt thanks to the Learn to Swim programme.
