Fantastic exam results for Agnes School English section :

On the 21st and 22nd of April 2016 the pupils of 5th and 6th primary sat the Cambridge Key for Schools English exam. This exam is an international English exam aimed for school-aged learners. It has been developed according to international standards and is linked into the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), the international way to describe language ability.

The results are excellent with 75% of the pupils gaining the top level score, an equivalent to B1 proving that the English section is succeeding in its goal. This exam is a great first step in learning English and one that starts off the Cambridge English exam journey.

We are very proud here at Agnes of our 5th and 6th primary pupils in achieving these wonderful.

Last Monday January 25th 2016, we had the pleasure of welcoming Madame Inès de Franclieu who came to school to instruct parents on the emotional education of their children.

She reminded us of the importance and the urgency of preparing our children to speak of true love. By her wise advice, we learnt how to strengthen our children end develop in them a positive and true vision of how beautiful love can be. Love, in our society, is often reduced to only sexuality that is used as a technique with the sole purpose of bringing pleasure. This view is re-inforced by the things our children see on the streets, on the internet and in the media.

Love is more than sexuality even if sexuality can be included in love.

Love is the capacity to give totally and only this total gift can lead to happiness.

Madame de Franclieu stressed the crucial importance of teaching our children how to distinguish between the fleeting pleasure of happiness and something else that results from a longer, sometimes difficult but always beautiful experience. She also advised us to educate our children in the true way of love and to encourage them to have great and lasting friendships. Nowadays, we hear very little about friendships.  Friendships are essential and allow us to open ourselves up more deeply to others.  Without meaningful friendships, we are devoid of of sensitivity and this can often prevent us from taking an interest in each other which in turn can become very enriching.

Also, our children need to be surrounded by good examples.

This example comes first from the parents where our young people can see and experience the love that unites their father and mother even in difficult times, where they can learn and feel what happiness is built on.  This is so much more than a passing pleasure and children can be told that they are the life that springs from this conjugal love and that the body is beautiful because it gives life.

When children are ready for love, it is for parents to talk to them about the beauty of the body that has been made ​​to be given utterly in love as, when two bodies are united in love, it is a beautiful thing. Unfortunately, sooner or later, our children will here about the risk of STDs, unwanted life or unplanned life that some unions may bring.  When our children hear such messages, how can they want to have a loving relationship?  Not to love, is to permently deprive us of happiness.

Instead, lets talk to them about life that is beautiful and bodies that are made to love and give of themselves which, in turn will give friendship and a love that will grow between a man and a women who have freely choosen to live together forever.

This is what will allow our children to live their dream of love and will help them to brave the destructive dictates of society.

Merci Madame de Franclieu.

On Thursday October 15th 2015 , we had the pleasure of welcoming Archbishop Léonard at our school.After a musical greeting in the foyer , he proceeded to visit some of our classes, then celebrated the eucharisty with the students of 3 rd , 4 th 5 th & 6 th primary. To the older of our students he gave two pièces of valuable advice ;

1: “ Read, profit from every instant of your free time to read & watch less tv / computer. Whilst reading books, you become more patient , you learn to write better, without errors & you create cultural baggage”.

2: “ Here in this school , you have a beautiful spiritual abundance. Profit from it to bring your heart closer to our Lords. Increase your heartiness to that of our Lords heart, only then will you have a great heart”.

Afterwards, he spoke to the children about the jpys of school…….

Thank you

We could observe these birds of prey in real life ! The falconers explained the natural habitat & environment of these majestic creatures , followed by an air show !

During the show , we had the pleasure of watching owls, a Grand duke, a buzzard , an eagle & of course a real life-sized vulture !

After the show, the M3 English/ Netherlands class had a didactic lesson in the classroom. The children got to see many different types of feathers from these birds of prey with indepth explainations. This event was a memorable experience for the whole school.
