Poetry Recital Competition 2023

Last Thursday the English department held a poetry recital competition for students from 6e - 1ere. Class finalists recited their poem in front of a panel of judges. The students were all awarded certificates.
The winners took home a prize.
A big thank you to Yannick Prouteau (Vie Scolaire), Margherita Contafio (English Dept), Karen O’Brien (CM2) and Amelie Petit (Year 11 BFI) who gave up their time to be on the jury.

This competition is based on the UK one called Poetry By Heart and aims to develop student confidence with poetry in an enjoyable, accessible and engaging way. More information can be found here: https://poetrybyheart.org.uk/ https://poetrybyheart.org.uk/

Simon Armitage, the UK Poet Laureate reminds us that reciting a poem is much more than simply learning a poem by heart:

"The poems we learn when we’re young stay with us for the rest of our lives. They become embedded in our thinking, and when we bring them to mind, or to our lips, they remind us who we are as people, and the things we believe in. They become personal and invaluable, and what’s more they are free gifts – there for the taking. We call it learning by heart, and I think such learning can only make our hearts bigger and stronger."

The event, organised by Yumiko Yamaji, brought together a wide range of musical genres.

Congratulations to all the participants and music teachers for this memorable show that enchanted the school audience.

Theater at LCS

Donkey Skin

Last night, the students amazed the audience with their performance of the famous tale "Donkey Skin". 
Months of rehearsals and preparations paid off as each student gave their best on stage. The colourful costumes and intricate set design added a visual and aesthetic dimension to this exceptional performance.

We would like to congratulate all the students, teachers, and parents for their dedication and hard work in making this performance a success. Bravo to everyone for this magical and unforgettable theatrical experience!

Congratulations to all the actors for their magnificent performance! What a beautiful cauldron!

Primary

Spider contest in the sandbox

The little spiders invaded the school's sandbox during a contest that sparked the enthusiasm and imagination of young children. This playful and educational event allowed the students to discover the fascinating world of these eight-legged creatures.

The children were invited to create their own spiders using sand, sticks, leaves, and other natural materials available in the sandbox.
Each child brought their own creative touch, giving rise to a variety of colourful and imaginative spiders. 

All these spiders are magnificent! Which one would you vote for?

Farewell to our two captains, Joséphine and Omar.

At the initiative of the entire team (Sports Section and Competitive Sports), our swimmers wanted to express their heartfelt thanks to our two captains from the Senior class for their leadership during the last CAPN 2023 in Sydney. 

Omar joined in 2016 in 6ème grade and joined the sports section to participate in the CAPN 2017. As for Joséphine, she has been part of the IT program at LCS since CM1.
Their teammates greeted them with a wonderful speech, wishing them good luck for the future.
Our captains also provided guidance to all our swimmers in preparation for the CAPN 2024 in Shanghai in May!
We congratulate them for their involvement in the LCS swimming programs for nearly 9 years.

Preparation for the 2023 season at the Hyundai Australia High Performance Center

After a successful season in 2022 with the Southend Maroubra Boardriders, Nour, Aurora, and Maxine, three of our top female surfers, were selected to participate in a training camp at the Hyundai Surfing Australia High Performance Centre in Casuarina, NSW.

This center is equivalent to the INSEP in France or the AIS (Australian Institute of Sport) in Canberra, Australia, which prepares Australian surfers for the upcoming Olympic Games.

We congratulate them not only for their past achievements but also for those yet to come.

World Ocean day at LCS

To celebrate World Oceans Day on Thursday, June 8th, all elementary students performed "Voice of the Sea" by John Williamson. This activity was organised by the Australian Marine Conservation Society. The goal of this initiative was to deliver a powerful message to the students and encourage them to take action in protecting our oceans. By involving the youth in this musical activity, the Australian Marine Conservation Society hopes to inspire awareness and a lasting commitment to ocean conservation.
Zoom conferences were also offered by the Australian Marine Conservation Society.
The 6ème students assisted the elementary students in creating the Ocean Mural!
With initiatives like this, we hope that future generations will continue to mobilise and take action to preserve our oceans.
