This weekend we went with the school to the ski resort of Crans-Montana. The students had the opportunity to ski but also wander around in the small town. There was A LOT of snow, so everybody enjoyed it very much!!!
“Games like World of Warcraft give players the means to save worlds, and incentive to learn the habits of heroes. What if we could harness this gamer power to solve real-world problems? Jane McGonigal says we can, and explains how.”
This TED talk, from 2010, points out an interesting argument about the continuously growing gamers society: what if the skills gamers use in virtual worlds, could be implemented in real world situations?
The whole boarding community had a Christmas dance and dinner last night at the Kempinsky hotel. We arrived there around 6.30, everyone was wearing nice clothes and looking very classy which was appropriate for the situation. We had great dinner with our friends and afterwards we heard few speeches from the head of boarding and our fellow students.
This was my first time being a part of this occasion and personally I found it very enjoyable. I had great time with my boarding mates and shared good times and many laughs. It was a nice change from the normal school routine and of course the food was much better there.
I enjoy this tradition that the boarding community has and I hope that it will be there for the new boarders in the future for them to enjoy as well.
All grade twelve students, have to be an example for the other students. They must have an exemplary behavior, follow the school rules, respect the security staff and be more straight in all terms. Since it’s their last year in high school, students have to try their best, because this year is crucial for their future and the paths they are willing to follow. It will influence their studies and the universities they wish to go and study at. To do your best it requires working hard. One of the conditions that all have to agree upon is the school policy which includes everything. As an example it represents the school environment, like the fire alarm. When the the fire alarm is initiated all the students must go out of the house to a particular spot, because if something happens, it will not be the school’s mistake but the student’s. In the school policy it is mentioned that all the students have to go to that spot! The students must respect the fact that the school policy is made for them and it’s for their benefit.
