According to the Luxemburger Wort, education minister Claude Meisch confirmed the move, which would place the primary school closer to the secondary school, which has had an international section since 2011.
The move is made possible by the fact that students of the Lycée Vauban will move to new premises at the Cloche d’Or in spring 2018, the article reports.
However it has reportedly raised concerns among local residents, who feel their district is already overburdened with traffic because of the large number of secondary schools located there.
Meisch was quoted as saying the impact will be minimal, as he expects around 400 pupils at the temporary school building in September 2018, as opposed to over 2,000 attending the French school.
In an interview with Delano in December 2017, the minister said any move would be a temporary measure, as the government is working on a construction plan for both secondary and primary schools to be based in Kirchberg. If all goes to plan, the new schools could open in 2025 at the earliest.
