Coffee Talks are an opportunity for parents and staff of NSFS to get together and talk about specific themes and subjects. (Families interested in the school may also attend to ask questions about specific topics and meet school staff.) There will be a new theme each time. Some will be for a specific grade but everyone is welcome to attend! (If the theme is 1st grade, current parents can come as well as future parents of 1st graders).

Coffee Talks are hosted by Elodie Le Nézet, Interim Head of School. They are held on Wednesdays from 8.40 am to 9.15 am or Fridays from 2.45 pm to 3.20 pm in the SJCS library.
