In France, until the late 50s, schools were separate for boys and girls. Often, in villages, the “École de filles” was in one wing of a small building, the “École de garcons” in the other wing and the town hall in the middle. In Fontaine-de-Vaucluse they were in two separate buildings and the name has been kept, carved on the front of each. I do not know how they are used now but what is sure is that there no anymore such a split!
Fontaine-de-Vaucluse/Vaucluso la Font
Frédéric Mistral, the great Provençal poet and responsible for a revival of the Provençal language at the turn of the XIXth century would be happy to see that now, many villages of Provence and especially his beloved Fontaine, now Fontaine-de-Vaucluse shows on the road signs both the French and the Provençal names.
