Mougins School

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

Harvest Festival

Each year the Primary School celebrates the Harvest Festival with an Assembly to which parents are invited and which will be held in the Performing Arts Hall at 09h00 on Friday 9th October.

For over twenty years we have taken a group of students in the Choir (Forms 4, 5 and 6) to the Senior Citizen’s Home (le Foyer de Font de l’Orme) where they entertain the residents with their singing. This is an important moment for both our students and the elderly and permits a delightful exchange between the ages. The songs will be performed during the Assembly.

We have, in the past, supported Les Petits Soeurs des Pauvres in Nice. This is a home for elderly people who have no financial support. However, exceptionally this year, we will be donating foodstuff to those immigrants who are existing in deplorable conditions at Ventimiglia on the French/Italian border. The food will be taken to them directly after the Assembly and will really make an appreciable difference to their lives Clothing is also needed, essentially men’s clothes and shoes. If you wish to donate clothes you can drop them in my Office any time before 9th October. The following foodstuffs are required:

  • Coffee/tea, olive oil, milk, conserves – tuna, sardines, chick peas - pasta, Rice, flour, fruit juice.

These items can be brought to the Hall of the Primary Building during the week commencing 5th October and will be displayed in the Assembly.

Thanking you in advance for your support and generosity.

New School Term

Although Mougins School commences the new school year on Monday 7th September, when students will be expected at 08h45, new students and their parents will be welcomed on Friday 4th September at 14h30. This early start gives students the opportunity to purchase any exercise books they may need, file paper and folders for certain subjects, as well as the School Tee Shirt, worn for all sporting activities which, together with black shorts (available at Sport shops such as Décathlon), is the only obligatory uniform. Delightful School bags are available for our younger students. Despite the beautiful blue skies we are now enjoying, you may wish to prepare for slightly wetter autumn weather by purchasing a family-sized Mougins School umbrella.

The Headmaster will give a 'welcome' presentation which will contain all the necessary information with which to commence life at Mougins School. Students will meet their Form tutors and other members of their class as well as discovering their classroom.

The School Accountant will be able to deal with any payments which permit your child to attend the 'Café des Amis', where freshly cooked lunches are available every day except Wednesday, as well as dealing with any other financial questions.

The Parent Teacher Association will be present during the afternoon, giving new parents an opportunity to discover some of their activities which enhance the social life of the School. All parents are automatically members of the PTA and, by participating in the activities organised by the Association, often make lifelong friends.

The welcome usually terminates by 16h30 and means that all new students who arrive on Monday at the start of the School day are immediately familiar with their surroundings and will be able to relate to some friendly faces. We hope that this process will ease your entry into school life and we wish each and every one of you a happy, successful and memorable stay with us.
