Mougins School

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

From Sue Dunnachie

The Primary Curriculum Garden will shortly be moving on to the next stage of development and this seems an appropriate time to thank Rachel Aspegren and the team she has so ably headed for all their hard work and the time they have given to this project. Naturally, none of the work would have been achieved without the generous input from parents and garden specialists, both financial and physical, and all those delicious cake sales. Your investment will enable students to work more closely with nature and, once again, we acknowledge how important parent support is in our School. Thank you Rachel and team.

We seem to have acquired a considerable amount of LOST PROPERTY yet again, much of it dating to before the holiday. Would you please ask your child/ren to check the Lost Property under the stairs in the Administration Building if they have mislaid any items. All unclaimed articles will be put in the container in the School parking on the first Friday of February for recycling.

Once again we will be collecting Piéces Jaunes this year and hoping to break our record of 88.5 kilos last year. This is a national exercise to collect small coins (centimes) and the
money is then used to help hospitalised children and adolescents. The School will have boxes in each class so, if you wish to empty your pockets of all those annoying coins, please help us make this collection a record-breaking one. The collection is from 8th January to 15th February.

The School has received a letter from the Director General of the Lenval Hospital for Children in Nice thanking all those of you who so kindly donated toys for children who had the misfortune to be hospitalised during the festive season. This gesture was sincerely appreciated by both staff and children. Once again, thank you for your generosity.
