French News

Bonjour everyone! As you may know, as well as teaching French in the Junior School, I coordinate the Sustainability Captains and I am a passionate environmentalist.

Our Junior School has a great track record for environmental awareness; with recycling bins in every class and the Environmental Club taking care of the school veggie patch and emptying the recycling bins every fortnight.

It was wonderful to see the two Semester 1 Sustainability Captains, Thomas Osling and Konrad Michael, run the very successful event to recognise World Environment Day on Friday 5 June. A day of free dress was held in the Junior School, where all boys were invited to wear a blue or green shirt to represent the ocean or the earth and to think about our planet.

Congratulations on a great event and to raising awareness amongst our students on issues that matter to all of us.


Au revoir,

Madame Vinton
