This is a picture of our FANTASTIC performance for the House Cheers in the first chapter of the Boarding Houses Competition – thanks to our great choreographer Daria!
We are going to the Welcome Dinner!! Here are Alisa, Tanya, Elena, then Varvara and Selena, and Ingrid… before we head to the Léman dining hall.
We have here: Anastasia and Aleksandra, Ingrid and Tanya, and Varvara, Elena and Anastasia.
Last but not least, last night we pre-celebrated Alisa’s birthday – it is next Sunday, but how to say no to a yummy slice of cake???
Today it is a special day in Villa Ecureuil! We received two very good news…!!
First of all, Yulia had a university interview this morning in Geneva and it was successful! Her art career is just beginning to flower!! (we will maintain the suspence here by not disclosing the name of the university… but you can ask her directly!!)
Then we were informed that Alisa and Elena were awarded a scholarship by the Meritas family of schools in order to participate to the Meritas Seminar at Balliol College, Oxford University, titled “Meeting the Challenges of Democracy”, which will take place next August!!
We are all soooo proud of our girls! Let’s celebrate!
Tonight spirits were high as Alisa entered her bedroom to find her bed completely covered with colorful ballons and pretty gifts from her friends!
Although her birthday was actually last Saturday, celebrations were postponed due to Alisa being with her family in Geneva… And the evening was made even sweeter by a yummy chocolate cake! Last but not least, a nice round of individual wishes that each boarder said aloud to Alisa… wishes to accompany her in her bright future!
