A message from the primary head
Children are never too young to start asking philosophical questions and to learn about thinking. On Wednesday 30th January, all of our secondary students had the opportunity to spend a day philosophising and thinking about the question of time. They took part in workshops run by teachers from every subject area (CM1’s Mr Belin also joined them) all based on the topic of Time.

In primary school too, some of our classes are taking part in the Philo-menal project. Philosophical discussions in class are helping students to develop critical thinking and debating skills and teaching them - our future citizens - to be aware of issues that are important in the modern world. The project encourages cooperation, tolerance and listening.

In May, we will invite you to a Philo-menal group exhibition featuring contributions from infant to Terminale classes. You’ll find the time to come...right?

Ms Carine Capel

CE1-CM2 Primary Student Council

Please find here the minutes of the latest meeting of student class representatives. The main item on the agenda was feedback from the class photo shoots.

Reminder: no money or toys at school

Please remember that money and toys are not allowed at school (except for special events). When children do bring money or toys to school, please ensure that they know they cannot trade, exchange, lend or borrow from other children.
