Ecole Communautaire Jean Paul II
One of the most remote schools in the network, the school in the community of Matbatimant rests atop the peak of a mountain far above another Summits school in the community of Lacolline that lies in the valley. Although it is remote and held beneath a wooden stick structure, the teachers and parents are dedicated to caring for it. The village’s name translates to, “remnants of the boat,” because, according to legend, part of Noah’s Ark was found nearby. Without this school, children would be forced to hike down the mountain each day to find one closer into the town of Lacolline.
