In our final Grand Placitum of 2016, we were lucky enough to meet 6 year old Hassana Hu from Nigeria, who had had heart surgery thanks to Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque and the donations raised by them. She was absolutely delightful and even had the courage to sing 'Frère Jacques' for us - there was not a dry eye in the gymnasium!!
Around 280 Collegians, CM2 and Foundation students came together to celebrate the end of term and Christmas. They all looked fantastic and had an amazing time. We even completed a 'Mannequin Challenge" at the end too!! All profits from the evening go to our charities MCC and ICU2.
L'équipe du programme Passeport, accompagnée de Mlle Rakoczy, sont allés à la maison de retraite "Le Belvédère" pour rendre visite aux résidents. Les élèves ont s'épanouir avec les résidents dans des activités de jeux de société tels que le billard japonais et les petits chevaux et ont également crées des vases en cartons.
Tout cela suivi d'un petit goûter tous ensemble. Que de la joie et de la bonne humeur.
Tous se sont bien amusés, aussi bien les élèves que les résidents.
Merci à tous pour votre participation et votre générosité.

The Halloween Ball was a huge success this year with more than 200 students from both the College and Foundation joining together to have some ghoulish fun! The costumes were amazing and extremely creative, including the obligatory mummy, witches and zombies. All proceeds go to the two charities that the school support: ICU2 and Mecenat Chirurgie Cardiaque.
It is always good when Crazy Dress Night appears on our calendars, as it is always a guaranteed fun night and this year it was no exception. From tartan hats to swimming caps, from unicorns to Where's Wally - we had the craziest night ever! Well done for the variety of outfits and effort made, all for a great cause too. Bravo tout le monde :)
Weren't we lucky with the weather?!! My goodness the previous week it had been chucking it down and then we were blessed with a cloudless, sunny day. Everyone made a great effort with their 20 minutes of running to try and get as many laps as possible; and the team costumes were brilliant. Kudos to the 'Where's Wally?', 'The Running Dead', and 'Ermitage Girls' teams - you looked amazing :) What is even more amazing is that we are going to be able to raise so much for each very deserving charity: Middle School students you are all stars! A big shoutout to Mlle Rakoczy for her brilliant organisation too.
"On Wednesday, April 6, the 6eme students were visited by Fortune, a 5-year-old girl from Gabon, who was recovering from a heart operation by Mécenat Chirurgie Cardiaque.
MCC is an agency, which receives funds from different places for disadvantaged children with heart diseases around the world (mostly Africa and Asia) to pay for their heart surgery.
Fortune was ADORABLE and very, very shy. We could see that she could understand what we were saying, but didn’t dare say anything, which was okay because her foster mom did all the talking.
Seeing Fortune made me happy because I could see she was happy and seemed to be WAY healthier than, how her foster mom described she was when she arrived in France.
On May 27, from 8 O’clock to 11:20, the Collège will be having a “course sponsorisée” (Fun Run) where each student will have collected sponsors: people who will pay them a certain amount of money per lap they run. All the money will go to MCC and ICU2. The students can participate as a team, where they can have a team costume.
I hope that many students will participate because the run raises lots of money that can help children like Fortune."

The 6eme Placitum group were delighted to have the 12 students, who were visiting from the Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai, India, come and talk to them about going to school and life in general in Mumbai. The 6eme were also given a short 'show' based on Bollywood dancing by four of the students.
The Indian students stayed just over a week, did cultural visits around Paris and Versailles, and a considerable amount of shopping! They were hosted by Lycee and ISP students who gave them a sense of how Ermitage families live their lives in the Parisian suburbs.
