CIV PORTUGAL AT IBS – IBS of Provence
From May 19th – 24th, IBS was proud to host for the fourth year, a group of 22 students from the CIV International School from Vilamoura, Portugal. The students spent their time between French classes and exploring the Provence region while also making new friends and taking part in the IBS Sports Day and Prom Evening!
Thank you to Micaela, Sao and Miguel for accompanying their students and we hope to see you again soon – either in Provence or Portugal!

ST PETERSBURG, RUSSIA – IBS of Provence
From the 14th to the 17th of May, a group of IB History students, accompanied by their teachers Ms Safstrom and Mrs Reboulet, spent four days in the beautiful city of St Petersburg to see for themselves the places (and palaces) they had read about in their books. They followed in the footsteps of Lenin during the 1917 Revolutions, admired the splendours of the Tsar’s Winter Palace and generally enjoyed Russian food and culture.
Thank you to Ms Safstrom and Mrs Reboulet for planning this trip including all their hard work in getting the visas in time!
ITER VISIT – IBS of Provence
On Monday, May 9th, a group of 43 students from both the French and IB Sections, joined Mr Ranc, Mr Audren and Mme Fossatti, for an informative guided visit of the ITER site in Caderache. The visit was guided by Mme Marfaing who explained the ITER nuclear project in an interactive way and then took our students for a view of the new construction on the site.
THE NOT SO ROYAL WEDDING AT IBS- IBS of Provence
We would like to thank Prince William and Princess Kate for providing us with a good excuse for some royal fun on our English Day on 5th May. Pupils in 6° and 5° wore masks of the royal family and decorated biscuits with Union Jack icing which served as the wedding breakfast.
Those who were daring enough posed for a royal wedding photo but didn’t get to keep the ring and tiara since we had to give them back to Kate. Festivities continued throughout the day with the canteen providing fish and chips and apple crumble for lunch, although more sophisticated choices were available for the more sensitive palate, and a grand showing of a typically English film (Mr Bean) rounded off a very enjoyable day.
Thanks to Mrs Lawrence and the entire English Department for making the day a success!
