Headmaster's Notes

Dear Parents and Students,

Time for a Break
With this newsletter, you will have received your child's end of term School Report. Please read it carefully and take note of the descriptors on the inside of the front cover, as the grading system may vary from ones you previously have been used to. Of course, the report also marks the end of the Autumn Term, the longest of the three.

Winter Concert
Once again, the Winter Concert was full of excellent performances from choirs, individual performers, duets, trios and bands! Congratulations to all who took part - both performers and technicians - and thank you for your kind donations destined to expand our musical instrument collection, thus enabling more and more children to play an instrument of their choice. A very special thank you and congratulations to Nicki Elcome, our Subject Leader for Music, who trains all the choirs, produced an amazing programme, and directed the concert.

Ice Bucket Challenge
Thank you all very much for supporting my Ice Bucket Challenge. The icy water came as a bit of a shock especially as there was so much of it, but your massive generosity and the children's enthusiasm made it a warm experience. I am pleased to tell you that the Challenge raised 1400€ - truly amazing. You can watch the second wave of bucket on Facebook - Ice Bucket Challenge Brian Hickmore Mougins School. If you still want to help, send a mail to and they'll tell you how to make a direct donation to the unit - mention Ice Bucket Challenge in your mail. Thanks again.

Spring Term
Next term begins on Monday 5th January 2015 at the normal start times. Between now and then, if you celebrate Christmas, then Happy Christmas and of you don't - have a fantastic break. To you all on behalf of all of us at Mougins School, I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year 2015.

Kindest regards,
Brian G. Hickmore
