Mougins School

Prepare for tomorrow's world with an education worthy of today

Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day
On 24th March students and staff of Mougins School will, once again, be supporting Comic Relief, by participating in Red Nose Day.

The campus will be awash with audacious hair styles, red outfits and, of course, this year's example of Red Noses. Together with the sale of the Noses, money will be raised with tasty bake sales, sponsored aerobics and other activities.

Enthusiastic participation always culminates in a very healthy donation to alleviate childhood suffering around the world.

Having changed the design of their sports tee shirts, and as a heart-warming example of positive upcycling, Mougins School recently sent the remainder of their stock of original tee shirts to the Association Kenyankids which supports vulnerable girls, providing a safe home, school fees, clothing and food.

“Sue, here are my girls in some of the Mougins tee shirts - they loved them - even carro my house mum.”

Recycling and the Environment

Mougins School students will be attempting to enter the Guinness Book of Records with the longest chain to be made out of Nespresso capsules. As part of their work on recycling and the environment, the French department have been consuming vast quantities of coffee in order to collect a sufficient number of capsules to create the snake. These capsules are then emptied of coffee by a number of enthusiastic students and the coffee is used to fertilize the vegetable plot at school. Results of this challenge will follow.

A Time for Giving

P1000547


On 12th December the students in the Primary School welcomed the octogenarian, Madame Gentil, with whom we have collaborated for several years at this special time of year. Instead of giving our students a Christmas gift, we ask them if they would care to offer a gift to a child spending the festive season in hospital. The response is always heart-warming and Madame Gentil was able to take a car load of new presents to Lenval Hospital in Nice. This is also a convivial and emotional moment when the students take pleasure in singing a couple of welcoming songs to Madame Gentil who is now known by many of the children. A delightful moment where the wisdom of age meets the enthusiasm of youth and a much appreciated end of term gesture.


Mougins School T-Shirts

Mougins School has donated several bags of its old, unsold tee shirts to Kenyankids.org This gesture is much appreciated, not only by the children assisted by the Association but by others in the village, many of whom have never received a new article of clothing. This is re-cycling at its best!
