Our accreditation by the French ministry of education means that we adapt our calendar to the French standards. La Toussaint
in France, or what we call October break in Providence, happens in
French schools around the world. Historically it was observed as a
religious holiday, but is maintained by French schools to ensure that
students have regular breaks throughout the academic year. A nice plus
for our October campers means getting to enjoy peaceful trips to the zoo
or the playground.
Typically students enjoyed crafts like making scarecrows with hay,
Halloween spoons with Frankenstein, spooky ghosts, fall drawings, and
carved pumpkins. Each day they bake French recipes like apple tart, and
compote de pommes. Campers also go on area outings like the zoo and
games at the park.
