School life at LCS

LCS is proud to announce that our 8th grade students as well as 7th grade Latinists are exhibiting their work at La Pérouse Museum: From France to Botany Bay, a fresh and French look at the incredible journey of Lapérouse by the students of Lycée Condorcet.

This interactive exhibition includes a presentation of panels, texts and images and immerses us in the experiences of the first French people to set foot in New South Wales. With your phone, you can use QR codes to listen to the presentations of the exhibition, in French and in English.

Grade 5 students also take part in this collaboration with the museum, by creating a treasure hunt with objects linked to the journey and the fatal destiny of the famous French explorer, the Count of La Pérouse.

Finally, this work is the beginning of a new long-term partnership between the Lycée Condorcet and la Musée de La Pérouse.

Parents, you are welcome on Thursday, May 12, 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. Bayview Galleries, First floor, La Pérouse Museum 1542 Anzac Parade, La Pérouse.

LCS year 5s welcomes Tasmin Janu

On May 16, the Year 5s will also welcome an Australian author, Tamsin Janu, whose book was part of the Year 5-6 selection for the Prix littéraire des Incorruptibles (French Children’s Book Award) two years ago. The students read it in class this year.

Human Resources Without Borders Association

Magali Croese, representative of the Association Ressources Humaines Sans Frontières (Human Resources Without Borders) has now carried out her third and last incursion with our Year 5s to speak about child labour as part of the students’ work in both Literature and Moral and Civic Education.

Thank you, Magali Croese and the Human Resources Without Borders Association!


Next week, several primary school classes will be attending Kapla workshops, linking the Kapla work with several different subjects and areas of their curriculum. Our Year 2 students will be attending 6 workshops in total, and will then present their work through an exhibition for parents and friends on Thursday May 19, between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m., in the theatre. We look forward to seeing you there!


Earth Day

Earth Day is an annual event that takes place on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries. Since we are on school holidays on Earth Day, our students from maternelle to year 6th are participating in an extensive programme of activities this week from maternelle to Year 6 including Clean-ups, talks, meetings with a marine biologist and an author to speak about the environment, plastic, waste and more. 

School life in Secondary

May in Mexico

The classes of 3rd A and 3rd B bring you this May a magazine dedicated to Mexico. Discover with our students incredible corners of the country such as beaches, cenotes, lagoons… and articles dedicated to their traditions, culture and gastronomy.

You can find it online and on display at the CDI. Don’t miss it!

In order to celebrate « El día de la lengua española » (Spanish Language Day) with their AEFE classmates across the world, our students took part in a number of network activities aimed at celebrating the Spanish language and the students’ skills. Students were asked to share their favourite songs, words, expressions and more with other AEFE students across the globe.

¡Esperamos que os guste! We hope you like it!

Congratulations Titouan!

Titouan in CM2/Year 5 is a keen sailor aspiring to compete at the national level.

We are excited to share the fact that Titouan has just been selected in the Australian Junior national team for sailing (Optimist boat class) for Under 13s.

This selection is based on his current ranking of 5th Under 13 across Australia. Being in CM2, Titouan is only 10 years old, soon to turn 11 – now that’s impressive!

Australia in the international New Caledonia Optimist Championship regatta

As part of the Australian Junior national team, Titouan will take part in special training camps with the National coach and then represent Australia in the international New Caledonia Optimist Championship regatta during 9-14 October.

Good luck, Titouan!


Congratulations to our Elite Swim Squad students!

Congratulations to our Elite Swim Squad students Amélie Francfort, Alyssa Azriel, Ariane Rijsemmus and Ulysse Barraud who competed in the Australian Nationals during the NSW Easter holidays. Just to qualify for the nationals is a huge achievement, but the swimmers went above and beyond, putting on some very impressive performances:

A club relay team (Girls 13-14 4x50m FreeStyle Relay Club Relay) consisting of Amélie, Alyssa, Ariane and a non-LCS swimmer came in 7th overall which is a fantastic result!

Amélie also made two individual finals, coming in at 7th and 9th in Australia in 50m and 100m freestyle, and also took home the gold in the Girls age 13-14 4x50m State Freestyle Relay, the silver in the Mixed age 14-15 4×50 State Medley Relay, and the 4x100m Freestyle as a selected swimmer for the NSW State relay team. Congratulations!

Members of our Elite Surf Squad have also competed during the holidays. Morgan Ybert, Killian Ybert and Max Petit (former surf squad, current tennis squad members) participated in the first Surf Maroubra Southend Boardriders Championship of the 2022 season and did incredibly well, all finishing in the top 5 of their respective age groups, with both Morgan and Killian winning their age groups!

Registration for entry tests into Talent Identification (primary) and Sports Sections (secondary).

Sydney Condorcet High School benefits from an exceptional setting and facilities to help students develop their athletic skills. Badminton, tennis, swimming and surfing: a program that many other high schools around the world envy us.
