Our children feel like they belong to this community instead of feeling like outsiders in a foreign country. Marymount makes them feel at home.

“The aims of a Marymount education are manifold: to educate the heart and mind, and to provide for each student’s total growth, intellectually spiritually, socially, and physically.” Mother Marie Joseph Butler, RSHM

Just before the Thanksgiving Holiday, we received a message from Sr. de Lourdes Mechow, RSHM, the Provincial Treasurer of the Eastern American Province, thanking the Marymount Paris Community for funds raised during 2017 for Zimbabwe. She wrote:
"Thank you for your very generous donation of $13,760 received on October 30, 2017. Your gift has been forwarded to our sisters in the Zambezi Region to assist needy students in Zimbabwe. Your thoughtfulness and awareness of the struggles of families, not only to educate their children, but the need to feed and clothe them, truly indicates very compassionate human beings and gives witness to your values of self-giving and reaching out to others.
You are being remembered in the prayers of our sisters, the students and families in Zimbabwe."
Marymount welcomed Sr. Michaeline O'Dwyer, RSHM, as Interim Head of School. Sr. Michaeline is newly arrived in Paris in mid-August 2017 and has assumed duties to ensure a smooth transition to our new school year. She will be based in Paris full time while performing this role. During this time, the Board of Trustees will conduct a thorough search for a permanent Head of School.
About Sr. Michaeline O'Dwyer
Sr. Michaeline is American and was previously based at Marymount International School, Rome. She has ample experience in international school administration, having previously served as Interim Head of School in London, and held posts as Secondary School Principal and Interim Elementary School Principal in Rome. Sr. Michaeline knows our school particularly well as she has served on the Board for Marymount International School, Paris, and was Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee 2016-2021. We feel very confident that she will guide our school well, continue to build on the progress that Mrs. Bambridge cultivated in the last four years, and preserve the stability that comes with being the most established international school in France.
We were delighted to welcome Sr. Florence Muuka, the Superior of Zimbabwe and Zambia Region to Marymount. This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to connect with the RSHM Zimbabwe Mission and hear about where all of our efforts go! Parents and teachers also had the opportunity to sit and speak with Sr. Florence, and we are appreciative of everyone who came to speak to Sister – she was overjoyed to meet the people who help her mission in Zambia and Zimbabwe so much!
