The kitchen is always a happy place

Tonight the miracle of baking yummy cookies happened again in the Villa Ecureuil kitchen… And chocolate cookies at that! Jiusi prepared a good quantity of chocolate and chocolate-chip cookies which will be sold tomorrow in school to gather money for the MADS charity.

Other girls were in the kitchen, bringing fruits to the House for our afternoon snacks and chatting the time away.

A fantastic smell still lingers in the House… We will all have sweet dreams tonight!

This is the last picture, sent from Paola. She visited Monet’s garden and house in Paris. She described the visit as ‘so much culture’. I am happy she had fun catching up with her family and friends in Paris <3

I hope everyone else had a good weekend, and wishing all a safe trip during their holidays!

Four Ecureuil girls back from EuropaPark!

A trip to EuropaPark was organized for three girls’ boarding Houses, and four of our boarders went to spend 1 and a half days in Germany to enjoy this fabulous leisure park, which is not far from the border with the German-speaking canton of Switzerland.

It was a short and very intense trip – lots of fun rides, time with friends, food and pictures! Muzoon, Katia, Runa and Rina really liked it.

Here is a selection by our Esther, who went to the trip with the girls!

Sunday is Brunch day!

Sundays are – by definition – days that invite to relax, take things easy… And our brunch is exactly made for that!

In our school canteen in the Léman building, brunch starts at 9:30 and lasts until 11:30, and there is a very good buffet of various types of food… I particularly love the fruit buffet! However, the assortment of donuts and “viennoisierie” is also quite spectacular 🙂

This is the next picture taken by Jiusi.
In the picture, Charcy is taking her free time after school to help the preschool teachers to take care of the kids.
Such good and responsible helpers they are!

This is Michelle, my roommate, taken by me. I swear I never seen her out of the chair when even it is after school, social time, or the weekend. She is always studying, doing her best to pass her first year of IB and I am sure she will do well in every subject!
I respect her so much for studying, as she says ‘Studying loves me, and I love studying’.

This is the last picture, of Paola’s and my phonee.
This weekend was not so great when you break your phone even if you didn’t drop it and found it in your bag just like that….

I hope everyone had a great weekend and can’t wait to see more pictures about what the boarders,my family, will do this week and on the weekend!

Good Afternoon!!

These are photographs taken today during the activity called « Orientation Race » on the Salève mountains, in France, next to the border with Geneva. Saba was one of the participants.

 I hope next week the weather will be good!

 

A fun activity on the Salève mountain

Last Sunday a new activity was organized for our boarders: an Orientation Race, that is, learning and practicing the use of a compass and of a map to find one’s way back to the starting point of the activity. The location is beautiful, right next to a great forest and with a spectacular view of the valley and of the city of Geneva! A guide gave some information about the activity itself and about the natural surroundings.

Saba was one of the participants and, as you can see, she really enjoyed it 🙂
