“Learning takes place once very basic needs are met. Children need to build trusting relationships, have a sense of safety and security in their surroundings and know that they are not expected to fit into a mould.”Johanna Bambridge

Marymount International School, Paris kick-offed the first ever School Maker Faire in France on September 24th, 2016. Sponsored by the NEW Marymount School FabLab, the School Maker Faire featured S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) projects from Marymount Faculty & Staff, Students and Parents along with hands-on projects from community makers, and live performances!
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It's a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
Marymount's new 2016–2021 Strategic Plan defines the priorities and specific objectives the school will pursue over the next five years in order to strengthen and support its commitment to educational excellence and secure its long-term future. Our community joined us on October 17th to launch our visionary roadmap for Marymount's future. We'd like to thank all of our guests that joined us for the night, as well as Sodexo, Lenôtre, and Althea Rosea for their sponsorship of our cocktail.
Marymount students were excited to welcome renowned author Cornelia Funke to this year's Writer's Festival. Ms. Funke gave a dynamic and wonderful presentation to our students, giving them great advice and tips on how to make their stories and characters come alive!

On Friday, April 1st, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run 2016 visited Marymount students on campus for a visit and presentation. Members of the Peace Runners will be in the Paris area, running to their next destination and we are delighted that they have selected Marymount, Paris as a partner school. Our Marymount, Paris "Peace Keeper Students" welcomed them and escort them to the gym for the assembly.
Founded in 1987, by Sri Chinmoy, the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global relay that seeks to promote international friendship and understanding. Since its inception it has traversed over 100 nations and touched the lives of millions of people.
The Peace Run is organized by an international network of volunteers inspired by Sri Chinmoy's vision of a more peaceful world. Coordinators in each country partner locally with schools, community groups, sporting organizations, city and state government departments to bring the run to the community as a service encouraging international friendship and understanding.
The 2016 Peace Run to Marymount will be part of the European Peace Run relay. In March the Peace Run began it's UK route in London at the Sri Chinmoy Peace Mile in Battersea Park. On March 13th the Peace Run went to the National Botanic Gardens in Camarthen, Wales. From March 20th to 23rd the Peace Run was in Scotland and on March 29th it crossed the Channel into France.
For the third year in a row, six Marymount math students have been selected to compete in the 2016 ISMTF (International Schools Mathematics Teachers Foundation) Middle School Competition, hosted this year at the International School of Zug and Luzern.
