Madame Gentil and Students
On Wednesday 16th December the Primary School welcomed their annual ‘fairy godmother’ Madame Gentil. This wonderful lady works tirelessly throughout the year to help those in need, and Mougins School has collaborated with her for several years. At Christmas time families donate brand new toys which are destined to be distributed to children who spend the festivities in the Lenval Hospital in Nice. Madame Gentil was welcomed by all the students who then sung to her in both French and English. Madame Gentil has seen many of the children growing up and they all have fond memories of her visits to the School. This is a touching and emotional moment for students, staff and our lovely godmother, particularly for those children who live far from grandparents as Madame Gentil is, in some ways, an adopted grandmother, which is evident from the affection they have for her. After a memorable moment she left in a car laden with gifts, ready for delivery to the Hospital.
