Form 7 Cake Sale

On Monday 19th March students of French in Form 7 organised a sale of cakes with profits going to 'Un Enfant par la Main'. Working with this organisation, our students are raising money which will pay for an afternoon snack for school children in Madagascar.

They are also hoping to create an exchange of letters with the students and all communication will be in French. The sum raised on Monday was 240€.

French Day

On Friday 23rd February the French Department and Primary School students celebrated a 'French Day' highlighting all things French. Forms 4, 5 and 6 held French Assemblies in collaboration with the Music Department and, of course, cooking and games of 'pétanque' figured on the programme of the day.
In the Café des Amis staff and students enjoyed a mouth-watering provençal menu. The Art Department created a superb panel of Provençal figures permitting the students to create photos and provide a memorable souvenir of a 'journée à la française'

English Book Fair

On March 29th there will be an English Book Fair at Mougins School and Bookbox International will be visiting the School giving students the opportunity to purchase a wide range of books. Hundreds of books from leading children’s book publishers will be on display including top quality titles from Ladybird, Puffin, Dorling Kindersley, Kingfisher, Random House etc. Depending on the sales of the day the School will receive free books for the Library.

We will also be hosting a visiting author, Rob Lloyd Jones (www.roblloydjones.com) , who will run writing workshops for the Primary students in the morning and will give a presentation to students in Years 7 and 8 in the afternoon.

Finally, a bookmark competition will take place and a prize will be awarded to one student in every year.

Un Enfant par la Main

Continuing the action undertaken by students in advanced French in Form 7 in collaboration with ‘Un Enfant par la Main’, two members of the Association came into School on 30th January. Madame Meyrieux and Madame Capponi spoke to the students about their experiences as ‘godmothers’ to several of the street children in Madagascar and, more importantly, about the Homes for these children.

By organising a cake sale at the School, the students, led by their teacher, Madame Scott, raised 160€ which will enable four children in a Home to enjoy a nourishing snack each day for a year. The students are organising another sale on Monday 12th March in order to increase the number of children they can help.

The action is two-fold, to raise awareness of those less fortunate than our students, and to engage in an exchange of correspondence in French. An article concerning this action will appear in the March edition of the Sophia-mag.
