On Wednesday December 13, 2023, a 12-year-old girl at Hautes Ourmes College in Rennes pulled a 17-centimeter knife in the middle of an English class and threatened to “kill the students.”
Her English teacher responded quickly, clearing the room and standing alone in front of the threatening student. After several minutes, the young woman was finally brought under control by an academic counselor, esp.
Calm and professional
The Rennes public prosecutor praised the professor's “coolness and great professionalism”. That's why the rector of the Rennes Academy, Emmanuel Ethis, asked that the teacher receive a medal for bravery. A request to the Queen of Brittany, recently ratified.
The teacher will get a bronze medal. The Principal Academic Counselor and Institutional Mediator who disarmed the schoolgirl will receive a letter of commendation for their act of courage and dedication.
The Medal of Honor for acts of courage and dedication is awarded to any individual who risked their own life to assist one or more persons in mortal danger.
