Once again the students of Mougins School responded to the spirit of giving at Christmas. Primary School students brought in brand new toys which were then transported to the Children's Hospital of Lenval in Nice where they will bring cheer to those who will be unable to go home for the festive season. This was done in collaboration with a wonderful octagenarian who works throughout the year to help those in need. Madame Genti,l (aptly named), came into School in order to thank students and their parents for their generosity and thoughtfulness. Students and staff alike were touched by the warmth of Madame Gentil's words and the School will contnue to encourage its pupils to be thoughtful towards those less fortunate than themselves.
On Thursday 5th December five international schools on the Côte d’Azur participated in the International Schools Speech Competition which was hosted by EBICA School this year. Mougins School were the hosts last year and our students gained 1st and 2nd place. This year the two students who were selected were Sarah Heiberg (Form 7a), and David Hallett (Form 9b), having won the elimination stages of the School’s internal speech competition. Having presented their first speeches, along with the other eight participating students, Sarah was selected to present her second speech which was a thought-provoking discourse on the taking down of the Berlin Wall. Her presentation and the quality of her speech won her a well-deserved 1st prize and we congratulate both our students for their hard work.
