On Thursday, March 27th, thanks to the efforts of Mme Giovanetti and Mlle Chaumontet, a group of IBS FLE students enjoyed a literary exchange with author Pierre BOTTERO. The event was held in the lovely Mas des Fontaines, one of the three boarding houses, and proved to be an excellent opportunity for the students to learn more about the art of writing while practicing their French! After a rich discussion full of questions, Mr Bottero was kind enough to give the students a private book signing.
Lots of snow, lots of blue skies and above all, lots of fun for the 8th Annual IBS Ski Trip which was held this year from March 16th – 21st above Barcelonnette.
Housed in “La Lauzetane”, a ski lodge in the valley of Ubaye, one hundred twenty 6th to 9th grade students enjoyed a full day with a morning of studies (yes, we are a school after all!) and all afternoon on the lovely slopes of the huge ski domain with the ski instructors from Pra-Loup.
Students then enjoyed a bit of R&R with their reinvigorating hot chocolate in hand before joining everyone for their evening dinner activities… And not to be forgotten – a very big THANK YOU to our valiant IBS teachers (Marie-Laure, Chrissy, Caroline, Patrick and Frédéric) without whom the trip would not have been such a huge success!
