Sous la houlette de Mme Griveau, les élèves de Seconde verte ont imaginé la suite de la nouvelle de Roald Dahl, intitulée « the Landlady ». Voici trois productions qui font froid dans le dos!
« No, my dear, she said. Only you. »
Billy didn’t know what to think about the Landlady, She was odd!

« Of course! She said with a doubtful smile, follow me, please. »
Billy’s room was creppy, glummy: The perfect opposite of a hospital room, clouds of dust in each corner.
Billy put his bag, and had a sit on his bed. « This B&B is freak, I had to be careful… First, I won’t drink another cup of this tea, ever! »

Avant d’être entrepreneur, Monsieur Faugère était ingénieur informatique et cadre de direction. Ayant fait le tour de sa profession, il s’est interrogé sur une éventuelle reconversion. Pour allier sa passion et la création de sa propre entreprise, il décide alors de se tourner vers le sport de glisse que ce soit en skateboard, en snowboard etc…
Dans son atelier, il décide en 2012 de fabriquer son propre skate électrique encore inexistant en France. Mais il découvre qu’un australien a eu la même idée et que son produit est plus avancé que le sien. Il entre alors en contact avec lui pour développer ce concept en France.
