Bonjour, vous savez, quand l'école recommence, on dit souvent: bonne rentrée (scolaire), comment dire cette expression en anglais?

Merci beaucoup

    In BE at least, there isn't really an equivalent to "Bonne rentrée !".

    "La rentrée" (as used un advertising for items required for the new school year) usually becomes "Back to school!".

    To wish a child a happy school year, you would probably say "Enjoy your new class!" or, for a small child, "Have fun back at school!" or something similar.

    I'm sorry, La Tradutrice, although there is nothing wrong with your grammar, it is far too stiff for any native speaker to use seriously (except maybe in a bizarre British public school?) If a teacher, etc. is welcoming students back, they would probably just say something like "Welcome (back) to (another year at) (St. John's) school."

    Since we sadly don't have a set phrase to translate this, Steve D's suggestions are good.
