SECONDARY EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
In Secondary, the Anglophone Section offers a range of extra-curricular activities.
Collège Drama Club
The collège Drama Club aims to help students develop focus, confidence and overall performance skills while learning how to cooperate with others. Students also develop their public speaking and presenting skills, which helps them in their classes.
Every year the Club works towards a production, which is performed for parents, family and friends at the school. Previous performances have included versions of Bugsy Malone, Blood Brothers, The Importance of Being Earnest and many others.
Green and Humanitarian Club
The Green and Humanitarian Clubs joined forces in 2019 to work together on environmental and humanitarian projects within the school. Each week, the students meet to discuss and plan fundraising and awareness-raising campaigns that focus on issues of local and global significance.
The aim of the club is to empower students to make a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment, linking what they learn in the classroom with topical environmental and humanitarian issues. The framework of the club is based on the United Nations 17 ‘Sustainable Development Goals’.
Successful projects to date include: fundraising to 'Adopt a Coral' and 'Adopt a Turtle'; fundraising for World Toilet Day; highlighting the plight of refugees arriving in Europe; raising funds and awareness of domestic violence as part of International Women's Day; establishing paper and stationery recycling facilities in the CSI Lyon with the proceeds going to humanitarian aid projects in Ethiopia and many other worthwhile projects.
The long-running Basketball Club was founded by an Anglophone Section teacher and currently runs through the CSI Association Sportive.
The sounds of squeaky sneakers, pounding basketballs and coaching calls fill the gym for just over an hour every week!
The aim of the Basketball club is to encourage teamwork, the development of individual skills, and to foster a cooperative spirit based on mutual support and fun.
Model United Nations (MUN) Clubs - lycée and collège
At its heart, the Model United Nations (MUN) club is a debating club, open to mainly lycée students. Each week the students meet to debate current events using the debating procedure laid down by the United Nations General Assembly. This allows them to develop confidence, mental agility, research and public-speaking skills, as well as a good understanding of the formal debating and decision-making process. See https://www.un.org/en/mun for more information on Model United Nations activities.
The Youth Model United Nations is also a debating club, open to collège students and run by lycée students, who share their experience of debating procedure and important public speaking skills with the younger students.
