We were yet again lucky 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. 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.
During the holidays in February, I went to the US with a group of 12 student. We first visited Washington DC, the capital of the US, which was very interesting. We spent three days there. We saw the White House, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam War memorial, the World War II Memorial and we visited many interesting museums. We had to walk a lot, but it was really worth it: everything was amazing!
Then, we went to Charlotte, in North Carolina, to meet our exchange students. They were all very kind, and my exchange student and I became good friends. I really miss her, but she will come to France with her group in June. We went to school with our exchange students every morning, and we did different activities during the afternoon. The school was huge and really pretty! And the lessons were very interesting. The activities of the afternoon were also fun, as we visited the town, went shopping and even visited Duke University, where Mr. Hunter went to college! For the last day, we went rock climbing with our exchange students, and we had a party for our last night.
I miss my exchange student, Rachel, and her family who were very friendly. I also miss Providence Day School, because teachers there were really kind and because the school was beautiful. Thanks to this trip, I learned more about America and its history, and as I spoke English most of the time, practiced my English skills.
This was a really amazing trip, and I had a great time in the US.
The Lesigny trip is a fun chance to meet and get to know British students from Ringwood Academy! As soon as we arrived, the PGL staff welcomed us, accompanied us to our rooms and gave us a tour of the premises. After that, we had free time before the other school arrived in which we could play tennis, basketball, football, snooker and air hockey! There was also a shop where we could buy snacks, drinks and PGL souvenirs.
On the first day, we had timetables according to our groups but we all did the same activities. There were many exciting tasks such as abseiling, climbing, archery and bushcraft. We also visited a glass factory and learnt how the glass creations were made. We watched as a worker blew into the glass through a pipe to make it bigger! The shop next to the factory contained many beautiful glass animals and ornaments. At night there was a big campfire and we sung a lot of songs! The next day, we visited the market with our Ringwood friends and did a town trail in Brie-Comte-Robert. Before we left, there were games organised by the teachers with Ringwood and Ermitage students and a big memorable photo was taken.
We all came back with lovely memories, a lot of mud and new friendships.
Supporting our two charities, the students were asked to don their best outfits and dance the night away to celebrate the end of the year. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and only smiles could be seen all night. A lovely way to end 2017.
Nearly half of our Sixième students had the pleasure of embarking on a drama trip to the Isle of Wight.
After an early departure on Sunday 21st of January, and a long but interesting journey including coach, shuttle and ferry, our group arrived at the hotel where a warm welcome awaited them. The first morning, after a nice stroll on the sunny beach, our students headed to their first rehearsal during which they were introduced to the tunes that they will never forget!
Following a week of intensive preparation, coached by an amazing team, and despite some inevitable stress, our students performed at Shanklin Theatre with a lot of professionalism and offered the audience a quality show. The last afternoon was dedicated to a visit to Newport, and to getting ready for the farewell party, and the closure of an unforgettable experience.
Certains élèves du groupe Passport du collège se sont réunis pour décorer le sapin de Noël du collège et se sont également rendus à la maison de retraite du Belvédère pour participer aux activités "Jeux de Société". Au menu, Billard Japonais, Scrabble, Dames et Bingo.
Un bon moment de détente et d'échange entre génération.

Le vendredi 22 septembre, 22 élèves du groupe Passeport , ont participé à l'action "Nettoyons la nature" dans la foret de Maisons-Laffitte. Cette opération consiste a récolter les déchets qui entourent notre environnement proche. Un moment très agréable et une action concrète pour la protection de notre environnement.
On Friday 1st September, our 6eme pupils left for a day of integration in Aventure Land. During the tree-climbing day, the students showed courage and mutual cooperation in overcoming the climbing courses, and in facing the formidable zip wire!
The day went very well and the students really enjoyed themselves. A great experience for all of them.
