A message From LCS

Dear Parents,

We are approaching the end of the school year and the students are preparing for the national diploma exams for the Brevet, as well as the BAC, IB, and OIB exams. As a break from screens in their daily lives, we have organized the "10 days without screens" challenge for primary and secondary school students to engage in collective activities.

We would like to warmly congratulate all IB students who exhibited their works in a contemporary art gallery on April 5. Their energies, talents, and creative work throughout the year were impressive. We also applaud the students who received the 1st academic prize organised by the Clemi, thanks to the web radio program produced by the students under the direction of Mrs. Savary.

The selection tests for the 4 sports sections / Elite squads (6th to 12) and Talent Identification Program (CM1 to 6th grade) will take place at the end of May and the beginning of June. You can find all the information in the article below.

Finally, we would like to remind you to be mindful and considerate of our neighbors who often complain about vehicle owners who use their garage entrance or even their gardens as parking spots. Please try to find parking in adjacent streets and help us respect the life and harmony of the neighbourhood and the Maroubra community. Thank you for your attention.

Thank you, have a great week.

A new great project for 17 classes in Primary school

The children are going to have an INCREDIBLE experience for 12 days, from Monday, May 8 to Friday, May 19. We will receive a dozen of chicken and duck eggs in an incubator on Monday, May 8!

As the eggs are not all at the same stage of development, they will hatch in class almost every day. So the children will have the joy of watching the eggs and caring for the chicks and ducklings! The students already know about this and are so happy and excited!

On Friday, May 19, the chicks and ducklings will be picked up by the association “Hatching Chicks” and a friend who has a farm in Northern Sydney. Since several classes are participating in this project and there will be about 100 chicks and ducklings to adopt, you can take some too if you want!

It is a big responsibility though and you should read these information first before making your decision:

If you are sure you want to adopt, please send me an email before Monday May 8th. 


Assemblée Primaire 03.05.23



On April 5th, final year students on the IB Diploma Visual Arts course proudly unveiled their work.Curating an exhibition is a requirement of the IB Visual Arts programme, but it also presents an opportunity to celebrate the ambitious, intriguing and skilled work that the students have created over the past 18 months.

The exhibition was an exciting culmination of individual artists’ journeys, where students demonstrated their exploration of independently chosen themes and numerous art making forms – from painting, graffiti, photography and digital art, to sculpture, and more.

Congratulations to the students for putting on such an impressive showcase of work that is deeply personal, thoroughly researched and inspiring. We have already received outstanding feedback from parents, staff, students and the wider community, and look forward to this becoming an annual event!" :

Défi 10 jours sans écrans  :  J-20

Screen time is at the heart of current challenges in education, including:

  • Health: physical health (sedentary lifestyle, overweight/obesity, cardiovascular capacity, sleep) and mental health.
  • Living together and school climate: violence (physical and verbal), strengthening of family and intergenerational ties.
  • Environment and consumption: reduction of advertising solicitation, responsible consumption, reconnection with nature.
  • Media and information literacy: enabling young people to better control technology and better define the boundary between screens that serve us and screens that enslave us.

This week, students from 3rd grade to 12th grade are filling out an anonymous survey about their screen usage, which will serve as a basis for future discussions in class.They will soon be presented with a diary to use during the 10-day screen-free challenge. Ms. Bronnert will meet with parent delegates to present this project, which will start on May 23rd.

Save the date: a conference with a renowned Australian psychologist will be offered to parents on Thursday, May 25th at 6:00 PM.

Today, we are excited to talk about an upcoming event that is sure to make a positive impact on our community: Stop Food Waste Day.

Stop Food Waste Day is a global initiative designed to educate and ignite change.This year, LCS and our Canteen supplier Chartwells will use the whole Pumpkin from skin to seed in order to show that it is possible to lessen our waste by being proactive with the produce that we buy. By taking action to reduce food waste, we are contributing to a more sustainable and resilient food system. LCS is already setting up Nude food Friday which takes place every Friday to raise awareness about avoiding single used packing and encourage children to eat fruits and use the compost bins for the waste.

We will be roasting pumpkins to create a flavorful soup, sides such as roasted pumpkin seeds, perfect for adding a crunchy texture to the soup or as a snack on their own. Additionally, we will be making pumpkin skin chips, a unique and tasty way to utilise parts of the pumpkin that are often discarded. In our salad bar, we will be featuring a roasted baby beetroot and butternut pumpkin salad with toasted seeds and a tahini yoghurt dressing. This salad is not only packed with nutrition but also with flavour, making it a perfect lunch option for those who are looking for something healthy and tasty.Finally, we will also be producing pumpkin cupcakes for the coffee cart, a delicious dessert option that incorporates pumpkin into a sweet treat. Through these dishes, we hope to educate and inspire individuals on how to effectively use food and conserve it.

Your waste to protect the forests

Bins are available at the main entrance of the school and we are ready to collect empty containers as donations to combat deforestation. Thanks to Laurence Irwin, our sustainability coordinator, for this wonderful initiative!
