The CentreVille school in Nyon marks it 100th year anniversary this year with a full day of activities planned on Saturday. One of those is an opportunity for children to take a dictation test which was set for seven year olds, and was part of the curriculum back in 1908. There’s also an opportunity for adults to take a maths test too!
