Since the beginning of the school year, ASEICA has hosted 'Coffee Mornings'  at each of the Colleges, and a Parent-Teacher lunch for the Primary Section. These meet ups are a great way for parents to meet their children's teachers and ASEICA board members in an informal setting. Parents also have the possibility to learn more about what's happening in class or with other extra-curricular academic projects that the teachers support such as the Model United Nations (MUN), the speech contest and various primary social activities. It is especially a great way for new families to connect with the rest of the ASEICA community. The events hosted this fall were:

  • Primary Parent-Teacher lunch for both the Sartoux and Trois Collines primary schools at the Ferme Bermond
  • Coffee mornings at the Colleges: Niki St Phalle, César, Eganaude.

Feedback from Parents

“The Primary Teacher-Parent lunch, held on the last day of the autumn term, was a great way to connect with the different teachers and all the parents once the school year was off and running. I always appreciate being able to catch up with fellow parents and to touch base with all the teachers. It’s one of the key ways that we all stay connected during the busy school year.” Lucy White, mother of Joe (CM1) and Max (CE1), Ecole Sartoux and Benjamin (5eme), Collège César

"I found the parent-teacher breakfast very informative. As a new ASEICA parent, it was rewarding to meet the teachers of the English section, to learn more about the course work, the setup of the section, extra-curricular activities, and to discuss over a coffee with different parents and my child's teachers. I look forward to another such meet up." Anne Minereau-Gay, mother of Hector (6eme), College Niki de St Phalle.

On January 21st, Mrs. Jones’ 5emes came down to the Sartoux primary school, to visit Mrs. Guez’s CM1 class. They were paired up and the 5eme students interviewed the CM1s in preparation for a creative writing project. The goal was for the 5emes to gather enough information on their younger partners to make them the main characters in their stories. They worked hard to complete their stories and the results were impressive! It was later the CM1s’ turn to visit the 5emes in their classroom at the CIV. The reading session was a tremendous success. Mrs. Jones’ class proudly shared their stories. The CM1s were thrilled to find themselves as the main characters. Some traveled through time, others battled evil dragons!All were impressed and congratulated the 5emes for their wonderful work!
