On December 13th, Mrs Guez’s CM1s and Mrs Richie’s CM2s of Sartoux went on a class trip to the Musée National Du Sport. They are pleased to share their comments with you…


  • “When we arrived, we saw a biggggg nest! It was actually the Allianz Riviera stadium which was built in the shape of the nest to house the Aiglon, mascot of the OGC Nice.” (Marie & Agathe)
  • “One of the first things we did was discover the press room. This is where the football players get interviewed by the journalists. We re-enacted a press conference and had to answer questions about why our team played so badly. It was really funny!” (Felix, Jules and Hugo)
  • “Guess what we did next? We turned into famous players and got to go where no one is allowed to go…The Locker room! We even touched Hugo LLoris’s brother’s football jersey. Oh and also Ballotelli’s! and their seats were sooooo comfortable! “(Alicia & Fanny)
  • “In the locker room, there’s a work out room. It was full of super high-tech equipment. Our class acted like the players warming up for a match by doing push-ups. We also saw 2 pools that the players use for relaxation. One is 6 degrees and the other is 36 degrees! The players jump from one to the other. They must have so much fun!” (Dexter, Tobias & William)
  • “Visiting the bird’s nest (the stadium) was really cool and fun. Too bad we couldn’t go on the field. The grass had to stay fresh and clean for the players. Did you know that the stadium has 36 178 seats? It’s hard to imagine that so many matches and concert happened right here. (Anais & Ava)
  • “We then went to visit the VIP rooms! Rich people rent them to watch the match while being in a warm and fancy place. They even have their own terrace! We went out on to the terrace and acted like enthusiastic spectators. We screamed and did the wave! “(Sasha & Eva)
  • “By the time lunch came, we couldn’t wait to devour what was in our lunchboxes. We then had some free time to play. We split up into three groups. One played British bulldog, one played football and the third did gymnastics. All very sporty! “(Matt, Theodore & Raphael)
  • “Sports time continued. The guide organized many activities for us to do. We tested our strength, reactivity, flexibility, coordination and endurance. “Ouch!” The invisible chair task was really tough. “I can’t take this anymore! I quit!” When we stopped, our legs were literally shaking! The other tasks seemed easier after that one!” (Katiana, Chiara & Charlotte)
  • “Finally, it was time to visit the sports museum. It was really interesting. Our extraordinary visit began with a time line of biking as a sport. We soon understood that the whole museum showed all the sports from their beginnings up till now. The first tennis dresses were weird! We also saw loads of cool Olympic torches. Some were the real ones not copies!(Maya, Lily, Tiphaine and Saya)
  • “We had a great day! The best part was definitely the locker rooms. We were really lucky to be able to go on this amazing trip. We had a perfect ‘sporty’ time…even if by the end, we had cramps all over!” (Ela & Nandi)

In the spirit of cultural exchange, parents from the anglophone section invited Sartoux school to celebrate Halloween. They organized games/workshops and a feast of special treats. The objective was to encourage the openness to other cultures and the international dimension of our school. Children were transformed into princesses, super heroes, witches, ghosts, hotdogs and many more characters. 

 Thank you to all parents who participated!

The CPSI, CE1SI participated in the 'SEMAINE DU GOÛT' on the 12th of October. 

We were privileged to have chef Khérima Belhadj lead various workshops during the day. In preparation for her visit, our classes focused on what might make dishes from our region unique. We explored the indigenous plants that we use in Provencal cuisine: rosemary, thyme, sage, olives, the bay leaf, etc… in addition to identifying various fruits and vegetables that are typical from our region. After a more scientific approach to comparing and contrasting the plants using touch, smell and sight, what better way than to experiment first hand then to taste them? Mme Belhadj prepared various recipes in advance and the classes were invited to relish to various savors of: ‘les tomates cocktail farcies au thon, un coulis de poivrons, un caviar d’aubergines et une tapenade verte et noire.’
