Sports tournament
Prix Liberté 2024

From 12 to 16 February, Ward Rabadi, a grade 12 student, travelled to Caen in Normandy as part of the Prix Liberté 2024.
This prize invites young people aged 15 to 25 from all over the world to nominate a person or organisation involved in the fight for freedom. It also commemorates the Normandy invasion of 6 June 1944, which contributed to the liberation of France.
So 24 young people had the task of choosing 3 battles, out of a total of 512, that are the most representative during the year 2024.
It’s an experience not just for the members of the jury, but for all the young people, as they get to vote for one of the three finalists for the prize.

Grade 5 cinema trip to the Institut Français de Jordanie

Under the guidance of the eco-delegates, each class at the secondary school site has been given a houseplant as part of the “greening the classrooms” project. The aim of this initiative is to green our spaces and raise our environmental awareness.

«Terre de jeux 2024» with the grade 6- 2 class

The Middle Ages

Students in grade 7 plunged into an exciting immersion into the Middle Ages through music and arts. During this exploration, they discovered the artistic techniques emblematic of this period, such as illumination, embossing and metallic effects. Their journey back in time gave them a better understanding and appreciation of the cultural riches of this fascinating period.

Expressiveness through masks

Students in grade 8 recently immersed themselves in the exciting theme of “expressiveness through masks”. The aim of this exciting project was to introduce them to working in pairs, highlighting the importance of helping each other to turn their ideas into reality. They discovered the art of patience, essential for meticulous work. In a friendly and harmonious atmosphere, the students let their creativity explode, giving birth to unique works rich in emotion.

Recycling and sculpture

Students in grade 9 embarked on an innovative project involving recycling and sculpture. They collected plastic bottles and creatively transformed them into artistic vases, using plaster and pastel-coloured paints. The project enabled the students to learn about the importance of recycling while developing their artistic skills and sense of creativity.
