FIELD HOCKEY AT IBS – IBS of Provence
Thanks to the efforts of Coach Clémentine Weingaertner, IBS students can now hit the field running with their hockey sticks every Friday afternoon. The IBS Hockey Club is open to all students but limited to a maximum of 14. Under the direction of Coach Weingaertner, herself a dynamic hockey player, students have also benefited from the guidance of Mme Carole Thibaut Teffri, the Women’s National Hockey Coach in Aix who also generously supplied the team with lots of equipment. The field has been prepared, the students equipped, the coaches are ready….let the games begin !
WRITER’S WORKSHOP – IBS of Provence
In honour of Book Month, IBS students from 6ème, 5ème, 4ème and 2nde participated in a Creative Writing Workshop hosted by Mme Greaves, Professor at the Université d’Aix-Marseilles. Students were encouraged to write in any language that they felt most at ease in expressing themselves. Some of the student compositions will be displayed next week in the library for others to enjoy !
IB VISUAL ARTS FIELD TRIP – IBS of Provence
Several IB Final Year students had the opportunity to attend a week-long Visual Arts Workshop during the second week of October Break. Students, accompanied by IBS teachers, Mme Schroevers and Mme Reboulet, were kindly hosted by fellow IB Art teacher Frances Marsden in the lovely region of Toulouse.
Their retreat proved to be the perfect setting (facing the inspiring Pyrénées Mountains) and resulted in a week full of high quality artwork for students and teachers alike !
