Mougins School

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

Perfect Recycling
In view of the fact that we now have new School tee-shirts, we will be donating our remaining green tee-shirts and winter weight tops to an Association called Kenyankids (www.kenyankids.org) As you will see from the photo, one of our tee-shirts has already brought a big smile to the face of its wearer.

11th November
Many thanks to those students who will be present at the War Memorial in Mougins Village on Friday 11th November at 11h15 in order to sing the American, Canadian and British national anthems. It is a privilege to participate in this Ceremony and our thanks to both the students and the Music Department for their musical prowess.

Another musical celebration occurred during the Harvest Festival when the Primary School Choir, accompanied by Ms Dixon and Mrs Martin, visited the Victoria Emera Senior Citizen residence which collaborates with the Sunnybank Association.

This group of enthusiastic musicians entertained the residents with a delightful selection of songs as well as a solo violin piece by Ella Hoang-Elcome and two piano pieces by Nadia Broadhead and Vasilisa Nazintseva . Their intervention brought a great deal of pleasure to the residents and the students enjoyed it in equal measure.

A Season for Giving
Time seems to pass more swiftly every year and we are now approaching the season of goodwill. For several years the Primary School has offered gifts to children who have to spend the festive season in the Lenval Hospital in Nice and this gesture has always been much appreciated. We would like to continue the custom this year and ask Primary School children to suggest to their parents that they have one less gift and offer something appropriate to a child in hospital. The collection will commence on Monday 5th December and any donations brought to School will be kept in classrooms until they are delivered on Wednesday 14th December. All gifts should be new and in their original wrapping.

I would like to thank all those of you who make a donation, your generosity will bring a smile to the face of a sick child.
