On February 26th, our Final Year IB Art students headed off to Paris with Mme SCHROEVERS for a full day of art appreciation. After visits to both the Musée d’Orsay and Quai Branley, they hopped back on the TGV for a quick trip back! Very practical! Hats off to our courageous students wo had their mock exams the next day!
On Tuesday, February 5, forty-four IBS students went to Marseille to see an adapted stage version in English of Animal Farm, a novella written by George Orwell in 1945. Students were inspired by the actors’ talents. Political pigs, cheery chickens, and hearty horses all came to life through the actors’ creativity. Many left the theatre humming songs sung in the production, and all came away with a greater appreciation for theatre’s power to capture the imagination.
On Thursday, January 31st, a group of 11th and 12th grade IB students, accompanied by Mrs. Reboulet, Ms. Michel and Mr. Trotebas, headed to Marseilles to attend a performance of Samuel Beckett’s “KRAPP’S LAST TAPE” at the LENCHE Theatre. The one-man theatre piece not only proved to be quite interesting but also a wonderful linguistic mélange of English and French for our international students. In all, a wonderful occasion to enjoy one of Beckett’s masterpieces and a lovely, evening tour of the Old Port in Marseilles.
