The Counsel General was greeted by the student body and the Belgian National Anthem was played by the band.
A performance by the school's dance team who choreographed a dance using a song by a famous Belgian artist as students taking French I and II sang along followed the the Belgium National Anthem.

Carencro High was chosen for its richness of diversity and culture according to Counsel General Gerebtzoff.
