Mougins School

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

Harvest Festival Assembly

On Friday 11th October the Primary classes of Mougins School will be celebrating the Harvest Festival with a special Assembly to which parents are invited.

For over twenty years members of the Choir from Forms 4,5 and 6 will be going to the local senior citizens’ home (Foyer du Font de l’Orme) in order to entertain them with a number of songs at lunchtime. They will take with them a selection of fresh fruit and flowers, kindly donated by our parents.

The School will also be delivering a generous amount of dried goods (pasta, rice, tinned fruit and vegetables and biscuits etc.) to les Petites Soeurs des Pauvres in Nice. This charitable institution, run by nuns, cares for elderly people who have no means of looking after themselves.

Thanks to our parents, we are able to bring some extra treats to these worthy recipients and this has been much appreciated by the nuns and their residents over the years.

Secondary School Parents Evening

The following Parents’ Evenings will take place, this term, for students in Forms 7 – 13:

Thursday 10th October - Form 11
Monday 14th October - Forms 9 & 13

Tuesday 12th November - Forms 7 & 10

All Parents’ Evenings take place between 18h00 and 21h00 and are held in the Examination Room and adjacent classrooms, upstairs in the Rosanna Building.

Parents will receive a letter and an appointment sign-up form prior to each Parents’ Evening, where they are asked to indicate which teachers they would like to see. It is not obligatory to see all teachers.

Parents’ Evenings are an opportunity to meet your children’s teachers and to discuss pupil progress. All parents are encouraged to attend.

Back to School

New students and old have settled into the academic programme of 2013/2014 with alacrity and friendships are being forged both in the classroom and in the various recreational areas of the School. In the Côte d’Azur sunshine, many of the senior students can be seen studying quietly in the campus gardens when they do not have classroom activities. During recreation they also enjoy exercising their mental faculties with the giant chess set outside the Science building or, for the more athletic, practising table tennis on the two new concrete tables installed on the campus.

Forty students in Form 7, the first year of Secondary School, passed their swimming test in anticipation of their residential stay on the Ile St Marguerite, in the bay of Cannes, from 23rd to 27th September. This is an annual event which permits students to discover their affinities and form lifelong friendships. The students stay in the Fort Royal, in which the so-called Man in The Iron Mask was held in the 17th century. Pupils will discover the Museum of the Sea and participate in a number of water sport activities. This experience has always proved to be a rich and rewarding one for both students and staff who participate.

This term sees the School putting the finishing touches to the new Science building, with its four Laboratories and second Computer Room, as well as the completion of work in the Performing Arts Hall. This building is now devoted to Music and Theatre and will enable the School to continue to produce first class theatrical performances and enchanting concerts.
