Today boarders were given recognition for their endeavours in the academic and boarding fields. I must say that I was very excited just to be in the Eiger auditorium: it was so full, and everybody was excited and (quite interestingly) listening in silence! The atmosphere was really beautiful.
Of course, recognizing someone’s efforts and perseverance is important because it makes that person feel that working hard does bear its fruits… but I was particularly proud because Meritas as a house had one of the best rankings!! It made me feel very good, because I do know that the Meritas Girls do have a special “something” 🙂 and it is great that others recognize this!
Once again, I would like to congratulate all of the boarders in this villa on their talents and on being so beautifully unique. Bravo!!

On Wednesday afternoon during our cooking class in Portena we cooked spaghetti with chicken. I really enjoy cooking and especially teaching others. We had some trouble with the ingredients and we didn’t have enough utensils but we cooked a very nice meal anyway. Of course all chefs were safe and enjoyed their creation in the end: one hour in the kitchen and dinner wass ready. Bon Appétit!!!
November is here! Marked by the Halloween traditional pumpkin-carving night, this new month full of challenges and excitement has begun.
All the students in Meritas are very busy, school tasks and deadlines are just behind the corner… every week! But it is also the time for friendships, for the strengthening of relationships and for cozy breaks in the kitchen, sitting with a hot cup of tea or sharing a yummy chocolate-something together while checking the latest videos on the computer.
November is a month that somehow invites to go in, to focus and concentrate. I feel that all the Meritas Girls are really gathering their energies to dive right into all the intense weeks awaiting them before Christmas… And all I can say is: “Yes! Be strong and determined!” I am sure the results of all your efforts will be worth it.
In the meantime… let’s carve some pumpkins!
