US NAVY VISIT – IBS of Provence
IBS was proud to host on Friday, November 25th a group of US Navy personnel who after joining us on the school terrace for lunch, spent the afternoon with our younger students sharing their experiences. Our students asked lots of questions about ’life on a battleship’ and ’navy life’ in general.
Thank you to the group of 8 navy personnel for sharing their afternoon with our students and to the AAGP for making it happen.

ARCADIA LIBRARY TRIP – IBS of Provence
As part of November’s Book Month theme, IBS students took a field trip with Mrs Tropini to the Arcadia Bookstore in Marseille. After receiving a warm welcome and information session, students had some spare time to select their own personal reading books. In addition to this outing, the school has organised writing workshops, a book swap and storytelling sessions during the month.
Thank you to Ms Michel and Mrs Tropini for organising these student activities.
