Last Friday night a dinner at a local Chinese restaurant was organized by CDL to celebrate the Chinese New Year – the Year of the Rooster!
It was a great night out, a good chance to spend time with friends and management on an informal… and yummy!… occasion.
Here are some photos of our girls!
As of today, all the Ecureuil boarders are back in the House! Full of energy, with lots of tales about their holidays 🙂 What I heard so far: “It was beautiful to spend time with family and friends!”, “I miss the beach!”, “I had lots of fun!”… So there will be many conversations over hot cups of tea during the week!
BUT… a BIG “but”… Mock-exams started this morning for the IB students! This also means, then, that we are…
Today Marion Hayden from the Counseling Dept came to visit us in the Boarding House. We created something together: a beautiful garland made of many different things we wrote on (balloons, magazine clippings, drawing paper, regular notebook paper). The two subjects were: “my goal for this year” and “what I am grateful for”. We wrote it all down, decorated the papers and then hung them onto a string – which is now hanging from our fireplace! It was a beautiful moment to just “pause” and take the time to put things in writing, and it is going to be interesting to check it all again at the end of this school year (maybe during a special evening event that we will organize!) to see how things have changed… Thank you Marion!
Well, guys, it is time for the last post in 2013… I think all of us were able to overcome different life circumstances this year: from great misfortunes to glorious victories. I hope that good memories will stay in your mind making you smile every time you feel depressed… and bad ones can always help you to avoid any further mistakes and disappointments!!!
IB2, take a rest, as Mock exams are coming soon!
IB1 can relax, as the true horror will start next year 😉
AP and Maturité, good luck and don’t stress too much!
Wish you all good grades, true love, loyal friends… and letters of acceptance to universities you wish to get in!
I hope you will have an amazing Christmas and New Year party, either with your family or with your friends! Wish you all the best and good luck!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
