CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2012 – IBS of Provence
Thanks to the French Department – Ms Chassang, Ms Cattazzo and Ms Deceglie, a group of international students headed to Cannes to partake in the celebrated Cinema Festival!
After seeing the acclaimed Romanian film by Cristian Mungiu ‘Beyond the Hills’, the students, under their umbrellas, hit the red carpet and the Festival Palace.
The students had the pleasure of meeting up with a former IBS student, Jordan Alber, who was working at the festival. Two of the students also had the surprise of being interviewed by a tv journalist!
Thanks to the French Dept for organising this visit for our students !

EXCHANGE PROJECT WITH TANZANIA – IBS of Provence
On Tuesday, May 22, 2012, the classes of Mrs Tropini and Ms Poet-Benevent received a visit from Mrs. Albiolo, a talented visual artist and history of art teacher. She helped create an exchange project between our school and a school in Arusha, Tanzania. The students had the opportunity to watch a special presentation as well as participate in a pen pal letter exchange.
The experience was beneficial to both schools and we hope to continue the exchange in the classrooms next year.
SENEGAL STUDENT CAS PROJECT – IBS of Provence
During the Spring holidays, two of our IBS students – Jeanne Bommelje and Syrah Riboural, travelled to Senegal, at the invitation of the Lycée CEM Cabrousse, as part of a CAS project. They arrived with 300 kilos of school manuals donated by IBS and books and sports equipment for which they raised the funds through their CAS efforts.
The school is the only one in the area and has a real need for financial support as there are about 900 students, with only 9 classrooms and 37 teachers. It’s not uncommon for a student to walk 20 kilometres to get to school as there is no public or private transport available. The school has 3 toilets and no cafeteria.
The students hope to establish a durable partnership between our school and theirs and that through various student projects, that IBS might be able to help them provide a more conducive school environment for their students.
