Mougins School

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

Headmaster's Notes

Dear Parents and Students,

An Excellent Performance National Championships for Orienteering
A team of four plus a student official took part in this three-day event from the 17th - 19th May near Mulhouse on the Swiss border. Erin Cooke (F9), Lucy Davenport (F10), Michael Kobouloff (F10) and Jules Ward (F10) represented the School and the Academie de Nice and achieved a very creditable 21st place out of the 44 teams in the competition. Our Jeune Officiel was Gaelic Jara (F9), who had to work hard and orienteer during the competition. Well done to all concerned and thanks to Jèrome for managing the team. This team looks good for the future!

Medical Forms
On entry into Mougins School, most parents provide a full medical history of their children using the medical form provided by the School. Some parents still need to do this for the wellbeing of their children.

Also every 2/3 years, a full physical examination, given by your doctor, is necessary to keep these records updated. This will ensure that any problems with vaccinations, hearing or eyesight are detected at an early stage. Nurse Marian will have sent out new forms to all concerned by the end of June. Please update and return the form in September 2016. Feel free to come and see Nurse Marian if you have any questions.

End of Year Prize Giving’s, Graduation and Farewell
It is our tradition to have Prize Giving Ceremonies for all sections of the School at the end of the school year. Some parents will be involved in more than one and you are all invited to the Graduation and Farewell Ceremony on the last day of term. To help you with your planning, here are the dates for all the Prize Giving’s in the last two weeks of term:

Tuesday 21st June
Forms 1 & 2 in the Hall at 09h15
Forms 3, 4, 5, 6 in the Hall at 11h00

Thursday 23rd June
Early Years & Reception in the Hall at 09h15

Friday 1st July
Forms 7 to 12 at 10h30 outside
Form 13 Graduation and Whole School Farewell at 18h30

End of Year Musical - Sweeney Todd
Our end of year musical, to be performed outside on the High Court, will be Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. There will be two performances Friday and Saturday 24th & 25th June at 20h00. Please be assured that whilst the story of Sweeney Todd is a little macabre, our production will be stylised and contain no gruesome scenes.

Book Return Day
All secondary school text books should be returned to the teachers who distributed them, on Tuesday 28th June. Students must make sure their subject teachers to avoid being charged for a replacement book cross off the number inside the book. Please do not hand books into the office.

The End of the Year
As mentioned above, the last day of term is Friday 1st July. School finishes at 12h00 (not forgetting the Graduation and Farewell Ceremony at 18h30). Students will receive their end of term reports on Friday morning. There will be a final Newsletter with the reports containing details for the start of next year, but just a reminder we come back on Monday 5th September at 08h45.

Kindest regards,

Brian G. Hickmore
