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!

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 🙂

The picture above was taken in the garden in the rainy weather after our House Competition. It was the Cheer Competition, and we got the results this afternoon – we ranked 7th, but we made our best effort and enjoyed the night anyway.
(In the picture, there is Rina, Katia, Paola, and Kanoko)

For the next blog piece, I hope to get more pictures of girls having their awesome time in the boarding, in school and while visiting Geneva!!

 

 

International Motor Show!

Today our boarders went to the Geneva Motor Show… In our House, Elizaveta and Nilgoun decided to get up early and join the others to be there and see the last day of the Show. Everybody left at 8:30, which is no small sacrifice on a Sunday morning!

However, seeing these pictures, one can say it was worth it… Maybe cars are not everybody’s favorite item, but in this Show you have a chance to see vehicles you can rarely see on the road on a daily basis. Fantastic!

Welcome Elizaveta!

Here she is, the latest addition to the Ecureuil team! Elizaveta arrived last Saturday night straight from Russia. She speaks perfect English and spent two years studying in a high school in California, USA, which means she brings lots of experience and a love for community living… This is always a plus – less adaptation time required!

First day of school for her today – Welcome to CDL!
