From the 19th - 24th of October, a group of students joined our teaching staff for a British experience. The younger kids stayed in an "Eco-Lodge", had filmmaking classes, tried their hand at cooking and went to see Lion King at the theatre.....in addition to the Costume Museum in Bath, they also visited the SS Great Britain ship and visited the American Museum....
The older students focused their trip on Theatre Studies with a short trip to London to visit Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. They also saw Much Ado about Nothing, live at the Royal Shakespeare Company and did theatre workshops throughout their stay to improve their knowledge about costumes, scenery and all the important elements of theatre production.
Thank you to the Mme Balandier and Mme Briscoe for organising this trip as well as Mr Castaillac, Ms Moron and Ms Bellanger for chaperoning the kids during their stay.

Thank you to Mme Schroevers for organising this day trip.
On Tuesday, September 25th, IBS celebrated its first "Down Under Day". Thanks to our creative teachers, the terrace was decorated in an Aussie/New Zealand theme, with a special meal prepared by the chef followed by a student performance by Benjamin Bloch and Sephora Mulemba.

Thank you to our Down Under Team for a lively day!
In June this year, IBS student, Laura SMITHSON, travelled to Sierra Leone in West Africa to teach at a small rural school as part of her CAS requirement. The school, Kankaylay Primary School, lies seven hours outside of Freetown and comprises 3 classrooms accommodating 40-50 pupils who ranged in age from 3 to 16 years old.
Before Laura left Aix-en-Provence, she did a book drive to collect second hand books which would be relevant to children under 12 years old. "There was a tremendous response from the IBS students and parents and I was able to take a full box of books which I handed over to the school. I also took pencils and writing books for each child."
Laura intends to return in 2013 for 2 months to help out and continue teaching. She is keen to involve other students if they are interested especially in collecting materials such as books, charts and other learning equipment.
On Friday, September 14th, IBS hosted its annual Cheese and Wine Party under the stars. The evening gave parents a chance to mix and mingle with other IBS families as well as meet some of the teachers and staff.
Thanks to all for a lovely evening!
