Mougins School

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

Headmaster's Notes

Dear Parents and Students,

End of Term and Reports
We are there – today is the last day of term and Secondary School students have their school report with this newsletter – Primary children have already had their reports.

National Championships for Orienteering Results
Congratulations to all four teams who competed in the French National Championships this year. The Collège Filles and Garçons performed well in Reims. The boys finished an excellent 14th/32 and the girls 32nd/39. In the Compiegne, the week before, our older students also performed extremely well. On the second day, the girls were 9th, the boys 6th, both out of 28. Added to the first day, where there were some technical hitches, the overall positions were Lycée Filles 19th/28 and the Lycée Garçons 14th/28. Congratulation too, to the two young officials, who did an excellent job at their respective competitions.

The Science Building
I am pleased to announce that the building is on schedule and will be ready for the beginning of the new school year. I remind you that it contains four laboratories – Science (for Key Stage 3), Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It also houses a preparation room to serve all the labs, plus a second Computer Room and a further classroom. The portacabins, used for a year by primary classes and this year for secondary science, behind the Rosanna Learning Centre, will be dismantled and removed in the first week of the holidays.

Summer Fair
A very big thank you to Dorothy Forbes and the PTA teams who made the Summer Fair such a big success. The “Mougins School’s Got Talent” was great fun, the food stalls amazing, and the barbecue a huge success. Thank you all.

Kind Donations
I would like to extend a special thank you to a number of parents who have made generous donations to the Garden Fund, the second Computer Suite fund, PTA funds and School Funds during the year. These very generous donations make it possible to provide those extra things that are outside of our budget and therefore benefit the children sooner rather than later. As a result, the Garden is well on its way, we already have half the money we require to equip the Computer Suite plus we will be installing two solid ping pong tables and an outdoor chess set in front of the new Science Building. So once again, thank you for your fantastic generosity.

Great Vacation and Great Summer
As always, a number of families are leaving us at this time including, of course, those who are graduating today in From 13. We wish them all the best for the future as we do all those moving on to new destinations. To the majority who are returning, the new school year begins on Tuesday 3rd September, although we will be welcoming new students the afternoon before. On behalf of all at Mougins School, thank you for your support and I wish you all an excellent vacation and summer.

Kindest regards,

Brian G. Hickmore
Headmaster
