Headmaster's Notes

Dear Parents and Students,

A Musical Triumph
Congratulations to all the participants in this weeks Winter Concert. Both evenings were full of top quality performances from bands, choirs and individual contributions. Thank you to everyone who worked to make it very special, including the PTA bar staff, stage managers, sound and light technicians, peripatetic music teachers, performers and of, course, a special bravo to Nicki Elcome, who directed the Concert.

Forthcoming Performing Arts Events
At the end of January (30th,31st & 1st Feb), you will be able to come and enjoy Sister Act (pantomime version). Watch out for posters telling you when tickets will be available. The PTA will be organising the Talent Show on Thursday 20th & Friday 21st March 2014 so you have plenty of time to think of what you would like to do and start rehearsing

Regional Cross Country Championships
On Wednesday 11th December, the qualifying teams, from the County Championships last month, competed at regional level at the Base Nature in Frejus. The top 25 teams from each category from the Alpes Maritimes ran against the same number of teams from the Var. We had four teams in the competition:
Benjamins Garaons - 10th ñ Luca, Dylan, Mackenzie, Mikael & Michele
Minimes Garaons ñ 9th ñ Alexander, Hector, Skander, Joshua & Aske
Juniors Garaons ñ 9th ñ Dushan, Nikita, Jason, Sam & Ryan
Juniors Filles ñ 5th ñ Laerke Darja, Jessica & Kana

Well done to all our cross country runners ñ the level of competition was extremely high. A special bravo to Alexander MacFadyen, who came 3rd /237 runners in the Minimes category (see photo of medal ceremony). To have all of our teams in the top 10 of each category is outstanding!

Have a Fantastic Break
On behalf of all at Mougins School, I wish you a Happy Winter Break, however you celebrate it. If youre travelling far or staying in the area, have an exciting or restful time. As for 2014, I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. School begins after the break on Monday 6th January 2014 at the normal times. Remember, at the beginning of term, teachers often start a new topic. If your children are absent at that point, you could be placing them at a disadvantage.

Kindest regards,
Brian G. Hickmore
