Mougins School

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

From Sue Dunnachie

On the Mougins School website: www.mougins-school.com you will find current information concerning the school organisation. The School calendar will keep you informed of the organisation of School trips, parent meetings, School and PTA events and any other essential dates in the School’s diary. You will also find the daily menu for the Café des Amis. Should a parent wish to discover the Café des Amis, you are welcome to come any day, except Wednesday, and have lunch with your child. If you wish to do this please see our accountant (Corinne Hajek) the morning of the day you wish to come and she will prepare a badge for you. The cost of a parent meal is 8€

The School accumulates an enormous amount of Lost Property each year and we would like to endeavour to reduce this. Please ensure that your child’s sports tee-shirts are marked with their name, as well any other items of clothing you do not wish to lose. The Lost Property box will be emptied the first week of each month and items in it will go into the collection bin at the exit of the School. This bin takes clothing and shoes so please feel free to use it if you are clearing out your cupboards.

In 2012 Pâcome collected 2,700 kilos of clothes and shoes from our container and they anticipate 3,000 kilos this year. All the clothes are transformed into industrial phonic insulation as well as being used in the automobile industry. Shoes are crushed and used in the fabrication of the special finish for sports pitches.

Parents often ask if the Library would care for some books and this sometimes lead to boxes of rather dusty and inappropriate books being left in the Office. We certainly do appreciate the offer but would appreciate it if you could speak to the Librarian (Denise Aughton) beforehand, in order that she may tell you if your donation would be welcome – English books only please. Many thanks.

Just a reminder that on 26th, 27th and 28th September Mougins celebrates Gastronomy with an International Gastronomy Festival in the village where internationally renowned chefs work in tented kitchens to produce some mouth- watering delights. Discover more at www.lesetoilesdemougins.com
