The APE team wish you all a very happy New Year!
The calendar of events for this coming term will be finalised this week at the first APE meeting of the New Year. The details will be available on the website soon afterwards.
The first outing of the Culture and Discovery Group, which took place the week before Christmas, was to the exhibition of Camille Claudel at the Musée de la Piscine in Roubaix. The trip was a great success and we await with interest details of the next outing, which will be available shortly.
For those who are interested, the Camille Claudel exhibition will continue to run until 8th February, 2015. We highly recommend it.
Our French/English Conversation Group continues its weekly get-togethers and has welcomed several new members this year. If you are interested in joining a French/Spanish group, please send an email to Sandrine, our Conversation Group coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Come and make new friends this New Year.
Each Wednesday, the APE team holds an 'Operation Gilets Jaunes' for the sortie de classes of the primary school, with the objective of improving the security for the children as they go home from school. We thank all the volunteer parents who assist us with this operation.
Every parent of the school is invited to get involved with the APE. We look forward to welcoming you.
Enjoy your visit to our website, don't forget to add us to your favourites and ... please sign our guest book and let us know what you think.
Even though Vigi-Pirate remains at its highest level in Paris, this is not the case here in Lille and its surroundings. However, the French Ministry of Education requests that we continue acting as follows :
We are keeping a very strict watch at the entrances to the school.
We are asking all members of the school community - student , parents and staff - not to congregate in groups outside the the school gates.
We request that people who are not members of the school do not park in front of the school buildings.
The school trips and outings that are scheduled during the next few weeks are not cancelled. The local authorities will just have to be made aware of them.
Please be assured that we remain vigilant.
Eighteen poems were presented, chosen from pre and post First World War. The deserving winners were Eilidh Le Bouille & Caitlin Taphorn for 3ème and

Our Christmas Market, which took place on Friday 19th December in both the secondary school and the Primaire, was a resounding success.
The APE has worked hard to both improve traffic flow near the school and reduce risk for your children. Some of you don't seem to care. We can't change that but the Mairie can. You have been warned!
We are as surprised as you...
Consequently, our APE website will need to be updated, which will take time. One aspect of this change is that the new EJM logo, which is red and black, now looks dreadful with our APE colour scheme! Why the change?
