Mougins School

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

From Sue Dunnache

Heartfelt thanks to the team of PTA ladies whose initiative to sell hot chocolate during recreation was much appreciated by our students and, I believe, a number of staff. A total of 410€ was raised and this will go to PTA funds which are used to enhance the lives of our students.

It is never too early to think about Spring cleaning, particularly when it is for a good cause. Mougins School is supporting the Association, the Chain of Hope, which provides urgent medical care for children in Africa. These children are brought to France and stay with a host family during their medical care. They arrive with nothing and are in urgent need of clothing, shoes and, eventually suitcases and smaller bags. They can take up to 40 kilos of baggage on their return to Africa which permits them to help their families. The School is organising a collection of the above articles and you can bring these to the Office, clean and in bags (clothes and shoes).  Thanking you in advance for your generosity.
Once again the School has participated in the collection of Pièces Jaunes, (yellow coins), and we have collected 63 kilos which will go towards the care of children in hospital. Form 5a in Primary and Form   in Secondary won the weight challenge with the most coins, so special congratulations to them and a big thank you to all those who contributed.

On Friday 13th March Mougins School goes red for Red Nose Day. This is a bi-annual national fund-raising event in England, part of Comic Relief. The goal is to place 300,000 children in Africa in education. In support of this campaign, the School will be selling Red Noses and the profit from sales will go directly to the cause. However, within the School Michelle Johnson will be organising an aerobic fund-raising effort and there will also be a cake sale and the money raised from these events will go to the School charity which is www.educatingcambodia.com

Fund-raising dinner at Royal Mougins Golf Resort in partnership with
 Mougins School
24th April 2015 at 19h30

The Royal Mougins Golf Resort has generously offered to host a fund-raising dinner in collaboration with Mougins School. It is hoped that, as a result of this event and other fund-raisers throughout the year, Mougins School will raise the necessary funds to construct a High School in the village of Prey Vang in Cambodia

This is part of a long-term project led with enthusiasm and devotion by one man; it has already resulted in giving over one thousand children the right to education and health care. Every centime raised goes directly to improving lives.
The generosity of people across the world now gives the village and its children access to three school buildings, a clinic and a guest house for visitors. However there is no access to further education and this is the present goal.

Your support of the event could help with the success of this project. Tickets cost 65€ per person for a cocktail, three course dinner and half a bottle of wine, musical entertainment by students of Mougins School and dancing to a DJ and a tombola with highly desirable gifts to be won.
