The Danielle Mitterrand French school of Sulaymaniyah is managed by the Association of Friendship Franco- Kurdish DIALOG, which is non-profit, apolitical and non-religious.

DIALOG aims to promote and implement all activities to a better understanding and dialogue between Kurdistan and France in all fields, especially in the cultural, artistic, educational, professional and scientific fields. Founded in May 2013, with the support of the Embassy of France in Iraq, the Consulate General of France in Erbil, the Sulaymaniyah Governorate and the Kurdish Ministry of Education, its main mission was to save the French school of Danielle Mitterrand Sulaymanyiah which had been closed at this time.

Since September 2013, the Association DIALOG restored and consolidated this school as the educational level as at the management and general administration. The school is now in full-growth, and has increased from 23 students in June 2013 to 131 in September 2015.

Thanks to TOTAL and LAFARGE-HOLCIM, who are supporting the school since its opening in 2013. Without them, the school would not rise from the ashes.

The School is open from Sunday to Wednesday from 8h to 15h, and Thursday from 8h to 13h

Canteen : A hot, nutritious and tasty meal served to children and staff every day. Food is provided by an excellent local caterer called Restaurant Amna Suraka that uses only the freshest products.

These meals consist of meat, rice, wheat, vegetables and salads. A balanced dessert is proposed to children, such as fruit or yogurt. The price of a meal is 3,000 IQD. At end of each month, parents will buy a book of 20 tickets at Restaurant Amna Suraka (3,000 IQD tickets x 20 = 60,000 IQD).

The books will be managed by the class teacher, who will give to the restaurateur the tickets corresponding to students present that day. In case of absence, the meals will not be counted and the ticket will not be given to restaurateur.

The canteen is MANDATORY, except contraindication of a doctor. In this case, parents must present a valid medical certificate.

Health: The infirmary is open daily. Students can go between classes or during recess. They will be attended by Mr. Zana Saeed, a state-registered nurse. Each visit at the infirmary will be communicated to the administration. If necessary, parents will be contacted by telephone. The infirmary is a place where students can come to express and talk about health and hygiene (sleep, food etc.) or about small daily problems in relation to the other, or themselves.

Transport : Given that students come from several points of the city, usually far away from each other, the school has organized a group of parents per district. Thus, parents have organized a transport system that allows the children a journey less than 30 minutes. For more information, contact the Administration.
