Louis Mussington, president of the Collectivity, himself declared: “I was deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of Frédérick Peuron, director of the Eliane Clarke school in Quartier d'Orléans. Frédérick Peuron was much more than just a school principal. A music lover, he made it his mission to share this passion with his young students. He was keen to create memorable memories for young people who passed through his establishment, to create a bond with parents. He believed strongly in the importance of promoting schools in neighborhoods such as Quartier d'Orléans. Beyond the school grounds, he was also involved in local sporting life, having chaired the judo club at Concordia for several years. The loss of Frédérick Peuron is immense. His contributions to education, culture and sport in Quartier d'Orléans, Concordia and beyond will be engraved in the hearts and minds of all who knew him and who were marked by his commitment. . My thoughts go out to his family, his son, Norman, his friends, his colleagues and all the students who were fortunate enough to benefit from his enthusiasm and dedication. The elected representatives of the Territorial Council and the employees of the Collectivity of Saint-Martin join me in sending you all our support and our most sincere condolences”. _Vx
