Love in a Box - UPDATE 2016

on Thu, 12/01/2016 - 13:26


This 2016 Christmas project was warmly received at the MLK, with 54 bags and boxes donated by our collegians and their families to bring some Christmas cheer to children less fortunate than themselves. The LIAB team in Chevreuse who initiated the project was particularly impressed by the care which had been taken, those personal touches that make a world of difference, including cards, notes, drawings, the choice of presents and how everything was wrapped.

Bravo to everyone involved!



Love in a Box - New PSAB Initiative @ MLK

on Mon, 11/14/2016 - 15:11

Love in a Box (or Amour en Boîte as it is known in France) is a school and community volunteer project that creates and distributes gifts to children at Christmas time. The program is non-religious and nonsectarian, and has its roots deep in the Anglo-tradition of sharing.

Boxes or backpacks are assembled by schools and community groups and contain personally chosen items from a specific list (toys, candy, something to write on, something warm, etc). Created with love, these gifts are distributed through organisations which provide services to families and children who would otherwise

Come and try out the International Choir!

on Thu, 09/22/2016 - 07:55

As Anglophone parents, many of us are used to 'lunchtime activities' being offered by the school. Here's one you shouldn't miss: 

The International Choir.

This lunchtime activity was born of inspiration between the PSAB and the FSE, indeed it is one of our own Anglophone parents, Aviva Timonier, who leads the choir.

Aviva is a professional singer with bags of experience leading choirs. She will be teaching the children to sing in both French & English, (maybe even other languages, who knows?) in her own fun style.

***Saltimbuc's Opening Night*** The ADVENTURES of ROBIN HOOD

on Mon, 05/09/2016 - 12:48

Yet again the SALTIMBUC has managed to stage a spectacular show!

This troup of 30 SIA students - ranging from CM1 to Terminale - has such talent, bringing so much joy and energy to the stage. The fabulous costumes are complimented by the colourful scenery and given an extra dimension by the original sound effects and music. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU ALL!

VERDICT: another great success for Saltimbuc, and one definitely worth seeing! The show in Bures-sur-Yvette was sold out so make sure you book your tickets for the last shows in BUC, 15th May 8pm and 16th May 3pm         DON'T MISS IT!


MLK International Choir - a new initiative

on Thu, 12/17/2015 - 14:47



International Choir: UPDATE *** UPDATE *** UPDATE

3 weeks into the project, we are delighted to announce that we have a total of 37 kids regularly attending the new International Choir which takes place during Friday lunchtime. Thanks to the number of participants, we are able to maintain both sessions, back to back. The feedback from the singers is very rewarding. The wide choice of songs Aviva works on with the kids means that (nearly) all tastes are catered for and a great time is had by all.
