Looking for public French-German bilingual primary schools in Vaud

My kids speak some German, but fir they now attend French-only schools in Vaud, close to Lausanne.
As we think about finding another apartment, I thought a bilingual, French & German public school would be great (i not for any other reason than to future-proof against volatility of the job market).
I heard about some such schools in the communes straddling the language border, but that would be too far away for an everyday commute to south-western suburbs of Lausanne.
I would be very thankful for any pointers - I tried google in many ways but no findings so far.

Re: Looking for public French-German bilingual primary schools in Vaud

As you are referring to Vaud, the Canton is french speaking, and thus all the educational plans, and education curricula is based with French as the main language, german is taught as a second language in later grades. I do not believe there is any public school in the canton that could go against this. However, there are a number of private schools, check the sticky on private schools, that offer french/german bilingual education in Vaud. Generally less expensive than international schools, but you still have to pay.

I wouldn't have asked in paying was an option...
I heard about bilingual public schools around the language border and also about some rare cases deep in the sea of French. Now the question is: how to find them.
