First day of March belonged to the monthly PSG Coffee Morning. Although the weather was cold and windy, many of the Saint Maur parents made their way to school to meet with others and nibble on home-made cakes and quiches prepared by French families. It was a real feast. Who had a breakfast at home earlier that morning, must have regretted it later. Many of the parents stayed for an interactive workshop on smart phone photography led by Renata Jaroscakova. The audience learned not only how to take good pictures with a phone but also the basics of good photography in general and how to pose to look better on photographs.
Everybody is invited to the monthly PSG Coffee Morning this Thursday, March 1 in the cafeteria. Let’s meet from 8:30 in the cafeteria side room to taste the snacks prepared by French families. An interactive workshop by Renata Jaroscakova on how to take better pictures with your phone will start at 9:15. Looking forward to see you there with your phones in hand.
Like every month, the first Thursday in February belonged to the PSG Coffee Morning. This time, PSG invited Alice Harrington, who has been an expat in Japan for more than 50 years. Our jaws dropped listening to Alice talking about her family’s adventures. Looking at the black and white photographs of old Yokohama, it was hard to believe it’s the same city we live in now. Thanks to the Japanese moms, the intriguing talk was accompanied by delicious treats that were nearly too beautiful to eat. Just see for yourself at the photo gallery bellow.
On January 11, 2018, PSG members gathered for a presentation entitled Nutrition for Life, given by Saint Maur parent Shirley Tamura (MPH, RD, DrPH). Shirley shared her experiences as both a trained nutritionist and parent to offer ideas, advice, and suggestions for keeping Saint Maur families healthy, strong–and most of all, well-nourished!
The mothers of Europe (not France) provided a delicious spread of treats.
Happy New Year!
Time to meet and catch up with everybody after the winter break!
