Weekend of Happiness

Good afternoon,

This weekend the girls from our House did a lot of things:
A few of girls, Katia, Muzoon, Rina and Runa went to EuropaPark; Paola went to see her family in Paris and others just stayed in Geneva and had a relaxing weekend, studying and sleeping…


The first couple of pictures were taken by Katia.

The first picture was taken in front of the water fountain in EuropaPark. In the picture, from left, Esther, Muzoon, Sofia, Katia, Elsa,Helen and Rina.
The second picture was taken in the street of EuropaPark. From the left, Rina, Katia, Sofia, Elsa and Helen.
They looks like the Beatles 🙂


The two pictures above were sent from Runa. On the left: Katya, Rina and Runa. They look so happy because they bought stuffed pillows. They look so cute <3
The right picture was taken in EuropaPark with Daniya, Iza, Sonya, Katya and Runa. They look like professional people waiting in line to go on to attractions.
This picture was sent from Enkhlin. She went to Geneva with her friends to go around and have a relaxing weekend.

I am so glad to see Michelle out of her chair in our room and having her time to relax in Geneva with her friends <3 <3


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!

What a weekend!!

Good afternoon,

For this weekend, we had couple of pictures that were sent from the Ecureuil boarders.


Here is the first picture from Runa. Her friend, Assyl from LY 25 had her birthday this weekend.
This picture was taken in Geneva.
They went to Silk Road restaurant. From the pictures, they look like they had a blast!
From the left, there are Inara, Danya, MD, Iza, Assyl, Yulya, Sonya, Amal, Liza, and Runa.


Here is the second picture from Katia, with Paola on the right side. It was taken in Versoix, by the lake side.
Even it is cold now in Switzerland, they are still enjoying the view of the lake during the weekend 🙂


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!

Relaxing weekend

Last weekend most of the boarders in Ecureuil had a relaxing time.
Some of them went to Geneva, some to Milano and south of France.
They were nice enough to share some pictures with me…


Rina shared with me her exciting picture of a squirrel climbing up the tree.
She was kind enough to take a picture for everyone to see!
In the Ecureuil boarding house there is a squirrel living in the tree 🙂
How awesome!


And there is Paola, enjoying her weekend in Aix en Provence, South of France.
What a beautiful picture with the sunset behind her!


This picture was taken before we had our first official meeting with the school counselor.
(From left: Katia, Rina, Maelys, Paola, Kanoko and Enkhlin). Everyone had a busy Monday in school and was exhausted…
It was a meeting to meet the school counselor and talk about when and how we can take an appointment.
We also shared some questions and issues anonymously by writing them on a piece of paper, and most of our problems were about our future, passing IB and this academic year.
In my opinion, the essential is focusing on what matters and staying positive. In the end, good things will happen.

I can’t wait to see more pictures of the girls this week!


Our week-ends are full!

Yes! So many things are happening on and off campus during the week-end! And the Ecureuil girls are participating to many different activities…

Here are some highlights from the last February week-end:


Above, the two Tatianas enjoying ice skating in Nyon on Sunday…


… And here you can see Aleksandra in full boxing outfit on Saturday!


A week-end in the Lake District

I went to the Lake District for the first time, for a very special reason 🙂 , and I was so impressed by the beauty of those hills and lakes and also by the warm hospitality of the “locals”!!

The famous poet Wordsworth lived there, in Grasmere, and wrote quite a few poems about the beauty of that area.

I also visited Manchester a little…
