A message From LCS

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to announce that Brad Marshall, a psychologist specialising in the impact of screens in daily life, will be joining us on June 1st at LCS. Brad Marshall, also known as The Unplugged Psychologist, has spent over a decade questioning the use of screens and how it can be adopted in a healthy way. But don't be fooled by the name, Brad is not opposed to technology.

As an internationally published author, researcher, clinician, graduate in psychology from Macquarie University and behavioural science from the University of Sydney, and speaker, he is here to help parents. We are proud and honoured to have Brad Marshall with us at our school and to offer you a meeting with him that will allow you to deepen your knowledge and reflections on the place of screens in our lives. The conference is free and reservations are required in advance. Please refer to the article below for more information.


LCS is also organising the Night of Code on May 25th. Although these two events may seem contradictory, they offer two perspectives on the benefits and framework for the use of new technologies. These are certainly exciting and complex questions that are part of learning and our school intends to continue to address them. Finally, we would like to congratulate our athletes who have made it to the NSW finals in handball, as well as the two students selected for the National "Je filme le metier qu'il me plait" competition.

Thank you, have a great week.

Nicolas L’Hotellier

Coding Event : La Nuit du Code 2023

Supported by the Association of Computer Science Teachers in France (AEIF), the Night of Code allows students from CM1 to Terminale to come together and program a game in a friendly atmosphere. In teams of two or three, our candidates have 6 hours to code a game using Scratch or Python. LCS will participate in the Night of Code on May 25th with classes ranging from 5th to Terminale. This event is an exciting opportunity for students to develop their computer skills and program video games.

Primary

Monthly Outdoor Class for PSC and MSD

Teaching outdoor means using what surrounds us to learn, experiment, help each other, cooperate, grow, and let our imagination run wild. Every time, the students can't wait to be there and come back with lots of ideas for the next outing. It's a real joy to see them thrive and make progress outside. A big thank you to all our volunteer parents without whom this wouldn't be possible.

Anak Tnk and the CE1 D students 

The CE1 students have been very involved since October in supporting the ANAK TnK Association, which provides support to underprivileged children in Manila. https://www.anak-tnk.org/

Stephanie, who represents the ANAK Tnk Association in Australia came to the class to show them a film and raise awareness. We then discussed, argued, and chose what would be done with the $1,700 raised through 5 cake sales in the hall and at the Christmas market stand.

The students took this work very seriously and had very mature reflections for their age. Among the 6 choices proposed by the ANAK Tnk association, the CE1 Disco class decided that the $1,700 would be used to buy 27 bags of 50kg rice each, or 1350kg of rice. Every student was really invested and now understands the importance and impact of this kind of humanitarian project. A real memory for life!!. Ils connaissent maintenant l’importance et l’impact de ce genre de projet humanitaire. Un vrai souvenir pour la vie !
