We've been celebrating La Semaine de la Francophonie (French week), Second and third Years enjoyed a traditional French breakfast. Some senior classes participated in a listening activity based on the series, L’Agence (The Parisian Agency) on Netflix, about a French family’s business of selling luxury properties in France and other French speaking countries. We did some virtual travel to Paris and Saint-Barthélemy… Ça fait rêver! First year classes put their creative skills to good use to produce some fantastic posters on the theme of ‘la cuisine et la francophonie.’ Well done to winners from both classes, Charlize Lomo (1st), Lauren Deane (2nd) and Oreoluwa Solanke (3rd) from Ms. Lloyd’s class and Emma Nolan, Rosheen Rajesh and Keira-Louise Sullivan from Ms. Byrne’s class. Last Friday, our TY French classes enjoyed a challenging treasure hunt ‘en français’ around the grounds of the school, made sweeter by being outside in the unseasonal sunshine, and with ‘une petite glace’ as a reward for their hard work! Bravo à toutes nos élèves!

Great day out on Sunday in CoilÓg Equestrian Centre for HFSS Equestrian. An unfortunate overall team score of 4 faults left the girls out of the jump off, but fantastic riding shown by all. Some fantastic rounds also jumped in the individual 90cm competitions. Keep up the good work!

We were speaking the languages of love and self-love on Monday in HFSS as students and staff dressed in red and pink to celebrate ValeMINEs Day. 1st and 2nd year students wrote messages of positivity, love and encouragement in Spanish, German, French and Irish which they posted on the lockers of their classmates and friends. TY Spanish engaged in “cita a ciegas” (blind date) and mi media naranja (my other half). Great fun was had by all. This year in the HFSS, we are reclaiming and renaming it ValenMINES DAY and encouraging a day of self-care. Self-care is anything you do to take care of yourself and research suggests that self-care promotes many positive health outcomes, such as fostering resilience, living longer, and becoming equipped to manage stress Feliz San Valentín Lá Fhéile Vailintín sona daoibh Bonne Fête de Saint Valentin Frohe Valenstinstag
