Mougins School

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

Headmaster's Notes

Dear Parents and Students,

I hope you all had a good half term break and your children have come back to School refreshed and ready to work hard.

Automatic Barriers – Entrance and Exit
Unfortunately, during the half term break, a delivery van hit and broke the new exit barrier, so we have had to wait before putting the system into action. However, all is back to normal and the barriers are now fully operational.

Before School: the barriers will be open before 08h00 every morning. They will close again at 09h15.

Early Years: The barriers will open between 11h45 and 12h15 to allow the Early Years children to be picked up and leave.

End of School: The barriers will open at the following times at the end of the day to allow parents to find a parking space before the final bell:
Monday 15h10
Tuesday 15h45
Wednesday 12h45
Thursday 15h45
Friday 15h10

Please do not come earlier than these times
If you are in the car park and the exit barrier is down, it will open automatically as you approach it SLOWLY!

If you come to the School at any other time, you will need to push the button on the post on the left as you enter and speak to the office, so they can open the barrier.

Regional Championships for Orienteering
This competition will take place next Wednesday 9th March in Mougins. Teams members will receive a separate letter.

Form 9 (I)GCSE Options Evening
This very important meeting, when the option blocks for next year will be available, is on Monday 14th March at 18h00 in the Rosanna Learning Centre (Examination Room)

Primary Sports Day (Forms 3 to 6)
The Primary Sports Day for these classes will be held at School on Friday 25th March in the Gymnasium and High Court. Details to follow for those classes.
The Juice Box
The Juice Box—producing fresh fruit and vegetable juices — will be on campus at lunchtime on Wednesday 30th March.

Students will be able to give it a try and buy healthy juices. The Juice Box truck is run by a nutritionist (and past Mougins School student). We will remind the pupils nearer the time.

Top skiers
Congratulations to Alexia Redding-Hoet (Form 5b) who achieved 1st place at the English Alpine Championships in Bormio, Italy, in the U10 Giant Slalom race. She also finished in an overall 5th position including the U12 girls. Sacha Redding-Hoet (Form 6b) and brother Jazz (9b) also achieved notable performances.
Kindest regards,

Brian G. Hickmore
