Film outing to the Institut Français de Jordanie for middle school students

The middle school students went to the Institut Français de Jordanie to see a film.
A memorable cultural experience!

Lecture by Jules Régnier "The geopolitical stakes of water: the example of Jordan"

On Sunday 14 April 2024, for two hours, the grade 11 HGGSP students attended a lecture by student researcher Jules Régnier, who had come to Amman as part of his research work. At the heart of this meeting was the question of water control and accessibility as a geopolitical issue. The students asked about the form that Mr Régnier had drawn up and used to gather information. They were able to discuss the water situation in Jordan and the players involved in making water accessible in the country. Finally, they discussed the geopolitical issues surrounding this resource in the region and the dynamics between researchers and political actors.

EV@LANG

The director of the secondary school presented the EV@LANG test to the grade 9 students, explaining its usefulness in measuring their level of English.

Fifth Grade and Sixth Grade Meeting

As part of the communication between Year 5 and Year 6, students from both classes shared a moment of reading and discussion about the book ‘Canterville Ghost’.

Fantastic animals

The grade 6 students let their imaginations go free by creating unique fantasy animals. Each creature was given a distinctive name and fascinating details, then meticulously drawn to bring their ideas to life. They later brought these creations to life by modelling them, adding a tactile and three-dimensional dimension to their fantastic works.

Our students have talent

Inès Hélène Cohic, a student in grade 10, has been selected to take part in the Orchestre des Lycées français du Monde as a violinist.
This is an international, inter-school orchestra made up of students from grade 6 to grade 12. Founded in 2015 to mark the 25th anniversary of the AEFE, the Orchestre des lycées français du monde is a unifying project, the result of fruitful partnerships, and a magnificent human and artistic adventure, a skilful blend of work and passion. It is directed by Adriana Tanus, a teacher at the Lycée français de Madrid.
The 10th edition was held in Brussels at the beginning of April and was made up of a conductor, 76 student instrumentalists and 40 choristers. 42 countries were represented and 56 schools took part, including the LFiA thanks to the participation of Inès Hélène.
