Please help a 9-year-old get his Christmas wish: peace for a day.
Dear Mr. President, I'm Pablo. I'm 9 years old and I can't be the only kid who worries about what is happening to the world. I think there are a lot of us. Some of us can't sleep at night. Others of us can't watch the news without running from the room. I pay attention to the news and right now, I live in France with my American mother and my French father. My sister lives in Paris, where 130 people were recently killed. But I could live anywhe...

What's up in New Caledonia? Independence disputes, judo championships and France's most idyllic spot?
What the heck happened? Several among you have sent me messages to know if I am still in New Caledonia. Where did I go? Why did I stop writing? The truth is, 2015 hit us with a wallop. In mid-Janua...

Recycle, reuse, reduce: it's nice to see New Caledonia taking baby steps in this direction.
The following article is a translation of the original article printed in Les Nouvelles Calédoniennes, 14 July 2014. I was encouraged by this news and had to share it with you. For those of you who...

New Caledonia: An unexplored and under-appreciated island in the South Pacific.
Of course I have loved it in New Caledonia - and with this second stay of 3 years, I have come to love it even more.

France does not stand alone in its shock, horror and pain this week. New Caledonia, along with countries around the world, join France, in solidarity.
With the horrifying events this last week in France, New Caledonia has stood in solidarity with France. Within hours of the news on Thursday morning our time, 1,000 people met at the Place des Coco...

With a week that started off windless, those of us who love and watch windsurfing here in New Caledonia were a little worried. We’ve known windless days at Anse Vata (Nouméa), and weeks before we’d asked our friends at Aloha Windsurfing what would happen if there were no wind for the Windsurfing World Cup, a return to the island after 19 years’ absence. “That’s not a possibility,” said Gégé, “there will be wind.”

After 135 years, the skull of High Chief Ataï from the Pacific archipelago of New Caledonia has been returned to his homeland. In a ceremony on August 28th, France’s Overseas Territories Minister George Pau-Langevin gave the skull to Bergé Kawa, a chief in his own right and a direct descendant of Ataï. This is a righting of a wrong that has been very long in coming.

June is a beautiful month in New Caledonia. The light sparkles and the temperatures dip slightly to highs of low- to mid-20s (Centigrade).

Wow, wow, wow. Roberta, of Italy for Kids, was just fantastic. We've been world-schooling for the last 3 years and travelling around the world. Roberta's tour of Pompeii was our 10-year-old son's favourite tour in Italy - and not because of Pompeii (though he loves Pompeii), but because of Roberta. He loved the way she spoke with him, engaged him, asked him questions, gave him things to hunt for and to think about. She was AMAZING - a natural-born teacher full of enthusiasm, knowledge and pedagogical prowess. We cannot recommend her, or the the tour, any higher!
