Mougins School

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

Headmaster's Notes

Already Half Term!
Today is the start of our half-term vacation. I would like to remind parents that we do not follow the calendar for French schools at Mougins School, although we are fairly close. The major differences come in the October and February half term breaks. In fact, we work more, but shorter days than the French System resulting in only one week ís vacation for these two holidays. Please take care to check your school calendar when planning family holidays etc. You will find a copy of the 2013/2014 calendar in your Family Guide and on our website.

The provisional calendar for the next academic year 2013/2014 is available, but as the ìEducation Nationale has not yet published its calendar, we may have to make some minor adjustments at a later stage. A copy of the provisional calendar for next year can be picked up from the School Office.

Access to the School from behind the campus
We have received a number of complaints from the residents of the domain behind the School, including the Kennels and Riding Stables that parents are driving through this private property to deliver their children to School. Obviously as it is private, it is not a usable access to School and I would ask those parents currently passing through there to deliver their children to School by the normal entrance (or bus stop drop off) Thank you for your consideration.

New Car Park
I am delighted to inform you that we have finally signed for the adjacent land to the present car park. Work will soon begin to create an extension of our parking facilities, which will hopefully be ready for the Spring Term in January. The extension will give us considerably more spaces (approximately 70), which will mean that no parents will have (or be permitted) to park in the road before and after school.

Old Car Park
The organisation of the car park will not change with the additional parking and the spaces with the red paint along the curb will remain for the exclusive use of the school ís personnel. The yellow marked spaces are for buses (and marked bus). If you see that these spaces are empty, please do not be tempted to park in them ñ it probably means there is a bus full of children about to return to School. Thank you.

The Return
As we only have a one week ís break, we looking forward to seeing you all back on Monday 4th November at the normal start times. Enjoy the week!

Lost Property
We have already accumulated an enormous amount of lost property. Students need to check that they take all of their possessions home each night. Objects left outside are put in the nearest building by the maintenance/cleaning staff especially in Winter time. Lost items are kept in the wooden box under the stairs in the Administration Building or in the blue box in front of the Primary Building. The contents of the box are displayed on the covered area, in front of the office, on Friday evenings after school.
