Pupils raise a whopping £16,017 for Action Against Hunger

Action Against Hunger

Congratulations to our pupils who raised an impressive £16,017 for Action Against Hunger this year! All pupils, from Nursery to Year 9, ran in the race which took place in May. The longer they ran for, the more money they raised. Their efforts will help the charity take action against the causes and effects of hunger by helping families around the world access water, food, training and healthcare.

Special thanks must go out to our Parents’ Association, who helped us organise the event and without whom such an achievement would never have been possible.

Well done to all!

Congratulations to our Year 8 pupils who came first of their pool at the Faraday Challenge. The judges were particularly impressed by their creativity, coding and presentation skills; we could not be any prouder!

The Faraday Challenge Days are organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) with the purpose of giving students the opportunity to research, design and make prototype solutions to genuinely tough engineering problems. This year, our pupils were asked to develop prototypes that would improve the performance of the Land Rover BAR sailing team for the America’s Cup.

The winning team engineered a device that could measure the straightness of the boat’s mast and suggest appropriate amendments for the sailors.

Congratulations to all twelve participants for this fantastic achievement!

Our school’s inauguration

On Saturday 11th June 2016, close to 650 happy pupils, parents, staff from London, Paris and Lille, family and friends gathered in Bedford Square Garden to officially inaugurate our school.

As our 190 pupils began to sing the song On Ira by French singer Zaz, the lyrics evoking themes of tolerance and global awareness set the tone for the ceremony.

The speakers celebrated the accomplishments of the school and thanked all those who had contributed. This was a special day to remember, honour and spread the vision of our founder, Jeannine Manuel while expressing enthusiasm for what the future holds.

Bernard Manuel, Chairman of the Board and Jeannine Manuel’s son, reminded us of the school’s dedication to UNESCO’s four pillars of education: “Learning to Live Together, Learning to Be, Learning to Know, Learning to Do,” therefore aiming to educate “talented, adaptable and open-minded young adults.” Head of School, Pauline Prévot, used an African saying: “Il faut tout un village pour éduquer un enfant,” to express gratitude to all.

_63B8198Following a moving film featuring staff and highlights of the year, two 6e pupils from the Student Council gave a speech about the school’s mission. Alice Ripoll and Alexandre Nakicen spoke with ease and confidence about the pride of belonging to such a diverse school, a diversity which was reflected in the 40 flags hanging in the garden. President of the Parents Association, Alexandra Blaringhem, gave warm thanks to the staff for their creativity, competence and commitment.

To close the ceremony, the choir sang Happy by Pharrell Williams, a feeling shared by all that day, and young Allegra and Daniel from the Mini Student Council cut the red ribbon…

Champagne! Guests then enjoyed a delicious High Tea with a myriad of baked >> cakes from parents. “I am really moved by how strongly we can feel the school spirit today,” said Head of Primary and Master of Ceremony, Coralie Manhes. The rain stopped just in time for everyone to enjoy the garden, for children to queue at the popcorn stand and play in Bedford Square. “It is amazing to see what my grandmother built,” said Laurent Manuel, who was among the four descendants of Jeannine Manuel present and who helped during the construction work at the school. “I am glad I was able to help. It is so nice to see everything brought together and continue to grow!” A vision undoubtedly shared by everyone.                                                                       (with Marie Trotzier, from the PA)

École Jeannine Manuel celebrated World Book Day on 3rd March 2016.

From Paddington to Tintin and his dog Milou, from the Cat in the Hat to Fantomette, from Sherlock Holmes to Little Red Riding Hood together with the Playing cards from Alice in Wonderland and Bill from Boule et Bill… For World Book Day, pupils at École Jeannine Manuel impersonated characters from stories that are truly without borders.

Students and their teachers, who also came dressed as their favourite book characters, started this special day with a grand parade in the hall that demonstrated the extent of their creativity, their attention to detail and their passion for literature.

After sharing and exchanging about the favourite books and characters, pupils voted for the class’ most creative costume.

This special day was also the occasion for everyone to partake in a special silent reading session in the DEAR room. Usually reserved to Secondary students this room is dedicated to the Drop Everything And Read programme that consists of four supervised reading periods per week during which 6e and 5e pupils take a moment to read from a selection of books suggested by the school.

Finally, World Book Day was also the occasion to address, with some classes, the issue of illiteracy in the world as well as to consider the crucial importance of reading as the foundation for all future learning. This gave us the opportunity to launch the Readathon for CE2, CM1 and CM2 pupils. The 2016 Readathon is organised by Room to Read, a charity which works to develop literacy skills and the habit of reading among children in Asia and Africa.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the families, pupils and teachers who put so much energy and passion in making this day a success. Thank you all and keep reading!
