Last week, we celebrated our PY6 and KG2 graduations. Read more about the ceremonies in this article.
Our teachers are the beating heart of our school, which is why we place a high value on the quality of learning delivered by our talented and experienced team. We recently sat down with Laurence Trucchi, a PY3 & PY4 teacher, who has been at ICS Côte d’Azur for over 7 years.
The PYP exhibition is an event where students are given the opportunity to share their understanding of a real-life issue or topic they've researched. This student-led project serves as the culmination of the IB Primary Years Programme for PY6, and is also a great way to help pupils reflect on their learning whilst developing their presentation and assessment skills.
On Friday 20th May our PY6 students had the privilege of participating in the first SONUM (Model United Nations) held in this region for students from primary schools. It was a fantastic learning experience for our students who enjoyed every minute.
Two of our PY5 students were thrilled to join the Globeducate France Robotics Challenge on May 10th. This event gathered 32 teams from 8 schools all over France, with most of the teams on site in Paris, and our students joining online
From Monday 2nd to Friday 5th of May, 33 ICS Côte d'Azur students, accompanied by four members of staff, spent five days in the mountains for their residential trip. After two years of limited trips and opportunities due to COVID, all the students and teachers were grateful to be out in nature once again.
In 2020, ICS Côte d’Azur was one of several Globeducate schools to participate in a pilot project bringing LEGO® education into the classroom and integrating it into the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) curriculum with SPIKE™ Prime and WeDo 2.0 Robotic kits.
Eco-Schools is the world's largest environmental awareness programme. Our PY6 students are working hard to obtain the famous 'Green Flag' by helping us become an Eco-School.
We asked Janet Goswell, our PYP Coordinator for her insights into what it means to be an IB World School, and how we implement the IB Primary Years Programme.
