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.
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.
On April 19th, a group of 1er IB Theatre students, along with their Theatre teachers, Ms Briscoe and Ms Bellanger, headed to see a contemporary adaptation of Antigone, called ’Sur les chemins d’Antigone’.
The performance was held at the Théâtre des Bernardines in Marseille.
From April 12th - 19th, a group of 15 American students from the Indiana International School with their two teacher-chaperones came to visit us at IBS. The students stayed with IBS host families and participated in sports and academic classes with our students while also having a bit of time to explore the treasures of Provence.
Thank you to ISI for a wonderful visit - our families and students were happy to have you with us !
