Week 13.Wellbeing Tutorial.Community Service by Louise L.

This week in our Wellbeing session  Louise L  gave an excellent presentation focused on Community Service

body_volunteer-1

What is Community Service?

Community service is work done by a person or group of people that benefits others. It is often done near the area where you live, so your own community reaps the benefits of your work. You do not get paid to perform community service, but volunteer your time. Community service can help many different groups of people: children, senior citizens, people with disabilities, even animals and the environment. Community service is often organized through a local group, such as a place of worship, school, or non-profit organization, or you can start your own community service projects.  Community service can even involve raising funds by donating used goods or selling used good like clothing

Many people participate in community service because they enjoy helping others and improving their community. Some students are required to do community service in order to graduate high school or to receive certain honors. Some adults are also ordered by a judge to complete a certain number of community service hours.

Volunteer activity ideas

 Why Should You Participate in Community Service?

There are numerous benefits to participating in community service, both for yourself and others. Below are some of the most important benefits of volunteering:

Gives you a way to help others

Helps improve your community

Can help strengthen your resume and college applications

Can be a way to meet new friends

Often results in personal growth

Gives you a way to gain work experience and learn more about certain jobs

Volunteer activity ideas

How Should You Use This List?

This list of over one hundred community service examples is organized by category, so if you’re particularly interested in working with, say, children or animals, you can easily find community service activities more related to your interests.

In order to use this list most effectively, read through it and make note of any community service ideas that match your interests and that you may want to participate in. Some considerations to keep in mind are:

Who would you like to help?

 Is there a specific group of people or cause you are passionate about? Look for projects that relate to your passion and interests. You may also just want to perform particular community service activities that allow you to do hobbies you enjoy, like baking or acting, and that’s fine too.

Do you want a community service activity that is reoccurring or a one-time event?

Perhaps you don’t have enough time to regularly devote to community service. In that case, it may be better to look for opportunities that only occur once or sporadically, such as planning special events or helping build a house.

What kind of impact do you want to have?

Some people prefer to participate in community service activities that have a quantifiable impact, for example, activities where you know the specific number of kids you tutored, dollars you raised, or cans of food you collected. This is in contrast to activities that don’t have such clear numbers, such as creating a garden or serving as a volunteer lifeguard. Some people prefer quantifiable activities because they feel they look stronger on college applications, or because they simply enjoy knowing their exact impact on the community.

What skills would you like to gain?

Many community service activities can help you gain skills. These skills can range from teaching to medicine to construction and more. If there is a particular skill you’d like to learn for future classes, jobs, or just out of personal interest, you may want to see if there is a community service activity that helps you learn that skill.Volunteer activity ideas

Our Advent Calendar in LY7

Advent calendars give a special meaning to Christmas.

 

Advent calendars are a countdown to Christmas Day, they start on the 1st December

The windows of the calendar are opened every day leading up to Christmas where you can see a pretty picture or find some chocolate inside.

The very first advent calendars were produced in the early 1800’s in Germany although not the cardboard type we get these days.

Christians thought of different ways of counting down the days from the start of Advent to Christmas Day.

At first Christians kept track of the days by making chalk marks on their door, which were rubbed off one by one as Christmas got closer.

Advent Candles and putting up a small religious picture to mark each day were other ways of counting down the days.

The first actual advent calendar which we still buy today was produced in the early 1900’s, although first mass-produced in 1908 by Gerhard Lang who worked at the Reichhold & Lang printing office in Munich, Germany.

The business produced over thirty different calendar patterns until the 1930’s. These calendars had 24 doors and were a lot better decorated than the advent calendars we have these days.

Before long, advent calendars had doors which when opened contained religious pictures, and some had chocolate in to keep the children’s attention.

This was proving to be popular over the years but had to be put on hold when World War II started, because paper, cardboard and chocolate was limited.

However, once the war was over the production of advent calendars soon picked back up in 1946, not containing chocolates though.

Towards the end of the 1950’s, chocolate advent calendars re-appeared and started to spread across the world.

Ten years later, many countries were using the advent calendar to count the days to Christmas Day.

Advent calendars are still very popular all across the world and now come in thousands of different varieties, some with just pictures in, others with just chocolate

Week 11. Wellbeing Tutorial. Charity Projects

Different ways to live Christmas!

Following our Pastoral program, Well-being and Charity Projects, today in our session we have addressed the theme of Charity, Solidarity and Illusion Projects!

 In our community we are very involved teaching our students about topics ranging from respect and tolerance, to values and self-awareness, for being fortunate enough to be able to experience life abroad, here at College de Leman.

 As every year with the arrival of Christmas, our charity projects and community services are more accentuated.

 On a voluntary basis, our girls in Ly7 (as well as more CdL students) will participate in a charity project on several upcoming Christmas dates. On which we will bake pancakes.

They will buy gifts for children who live in foster homes. Our students will be the ” Papa Noeles” for some of the children who`s families who do not have as many possibilities as the students of CdL boarding school.

In 3 different foster homes, around 125 gifts, “125 childhood wishes “from our ”  CdL Papa Noeles “, will make a magical Christmas possible for these children of foster homes!

Week 9. Wellbeing Tutorial. Respecting Diversity at Collège du Léman

This week in our Wellbeing session we focused on Respecting Diversity. Our ‘RISE’ values of Respect, Internationalism, Spirit and Excellence, are at the heart of everything we do, bringing together more than 110 nationalities and cultures to create one family.

Respect for diversity is the hallmark of our school community that is confident and strong in its values and beliefs. When students understand that each individual is unique with their own individual differences they can begin to value and appreciate these for the richness they bring to the school and wider community.

What language do you speak? What is your religion? What holidays do you celebrate? What is your racial identification? What is your ethnic identity? What is your culture? Why is cultural diversity so important?

Our culture is what shapes us, it shapes our behavior and our identity. Culture is our way of living, it refers to the shared language, beliefs, values, norms, behaviors, and material objects that are passed down from one generation to the next.

WHAT DOES “CULTURALLY DIVERSE” MEAN?

The term “culturally diverse” is often used interchangeably with the concept of “multiculturalism.”

Sociologist Dr. Caleb Rosado, who specializes in diversity and multiculturalism, described seven important actions involved in the definition of multiculturalism:

  • recognition of the abundant diversity of cultures;
  • respect for the differences;
  • acknowledging the validity of different cultural expressions and contributions;
  • valuing what other cultures offer;
  • encouraging the contribution of diverse groups;
  • empowering people to strengthen themselves and others to achieve their maximum potential by being critical of their own biases; and
  • celebrating rather than just tolerating the differences in order to bring about unity through diversity.

WHY IS CULTURAL DIVERSITY A “GOOD THING”?

Cultural diversity is important because our country, workplaces, and schools increasingly consist of various cultural, racial, and ethnic groups. We can learn from one another, but first, we must have a level of understanding about each other. Learning about other cultures helps us understand different perspectives within the world in which we live. It helps dispel negative stereotypes and personal biases about different groups.

In addition, cultural diversity helps us recognize and respect “ways of being” that are not necessarily our own. So that as we interact with others we can build bridges to trust, respect, and understanding across cultures. Furthermore, this diversity makes our country a more interesting place to live. As people from diverse cultures contribute language skills, new ways of thinking, new knowledge, and different experiences.

HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT CULTURAL DIVERSITY?

  • Increase your level of understanding about other cultures by interacting with people outside of your own culture
  • Avoid imposing values on others that may conflict or be inconsistent with other cultures
  • When interacting with others who may not be proficient in English, recognize that their limitations in English proficiency in no way reflects their level of intellectual functioning
  • Recognize and understand that concepts within the helping profession, such as family, gender roles, spirituality, and emotional well-being, vary significantly among cultures and influence behavior
  • Within the workplace, educational setting, and/or clinical setting, advocate for the use of materials that are representative of the various cultural groups within the local community and the society in general
  • Intervene in an appropriate manner when you observe others engaging in behaviors that show cultural insensitivity, bias, or prejudice
  • Be proactive in listening, accepting, and welcoming people and ideas that are different from your own

Week 8. Wellbeing.Protecting against Bullying and Respecting Diversity

After our October Break, we started the Second Pillar of our Wellbeing Programme , focused on Protecting against Bullying and Respecting Diversity.

During this session we discussed What is bullying, what bullying includes, and how to deal with bullying at school.

There is no legal definition of bullying. But it is usually defined as repeated behaviour which is intended to hurt someone either emotionally or physically, and is often aimed at certain people because of their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation or any other aspect such as appearance or disability.

Bullying can take many forms including: physical assault, teasing, making threats, name calling, cyber bullying

Bullying includes: people calling you names, making things up to get you into trouble, hitting, pinching, biting, pushing and shoving, taking things away from you, damaging your belongings, stealing your money, taking your friends away from you, posting insulting messages or rumours, in person on the internet or by IM (cyberbullying), threats and intimidation, making silent or abusive phone calls, sending you offensive phone texts, bullies can also frighten you so that you don’t want to go to school, so that you pretend to be ill to avoid them

anti bullying advice

How to deal with bullying at school. Action Plan.

If you are being bullied at school, tell a friend, tell a teacher and tell your parents. It won’t stop unless you do. It can be hard to do this so if you don’t feel you can do it in person it might be easier to write a note to your parents explaining how you feel, or perhaps confide in someone outside the immediate family, like a grandparent, aunt, uncle or cousin and ask them to help you tell your parents what’s going on.

Your tutor needs to know what is going on so try to find a time to tell him or her when it won’t be noticeable. You could stay behind on the pretext of needing help with some work. If you don’t feel you can do that, then speak to the school nurse. Don’t be tempted to respond to any bullying or hit back because you could get hurt or get into trouble.

The following sessions we will share more details in this regard with our students.

 

Boarding Department, wishes you all a Happy Diwali!!

Diwali, Deepawali or Dipavali is the Hindu  festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere (spring in southern hemisphere). One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali or Deepavali symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance”. During the celebration, temples, homes, shops and office buildings are brightly illuminated. The preparations, and rituals, for the festival typically last five days, with the climax occurring on the third day coinciding with the darkest night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika. In the Gregorian calendar, the festival generally falls between mid-October and mid-November. #collegeduleman #happydiwali #internationalschool #festivaloflights.

 

 

National Honour Society at Collège du Léman

We would like to congratulate all those who have been selected to the National Honour Society! Selection is based on four components: academic achievement, leadership, service and character.

The National Honour Society has played an integral role in our CDL community for decades and we are proud to continue this tradition for many more years!

Wellbeing Session. Week 7 Screen Time

This week in our Wellbeing seccion we focused on Screen Time Tracker . We care about all the elements which interfere with the life of our students. One of these is the time spent in front of screens which can be considered as something worrying for some youngsters these days.


University Fair at Collège du Léman

We have suggested 7 time management tips for them :
1. Eliminate distractions
2. Be focused at the task at hand
3. Use a calendar
4. Use a checklist
5. Get organised
6. Schedule rewards
7. Get a good night’s sleep

Mandalas as a meditation technique. Wellbeing Week 4 .

This week in our Wellbeing session we focused on ” A Healthy Mind “.  “Breathe” Mandala Drawing Meditation

In Sanskrit, the word mandala means “circle.” Circles are a powerful symbol found in every culture. We see them in halos, prayer wheels, and other religious symbols as well as architecture and nature.

Mandalas are sacred circles that have long been used to facilitate meditation in the Indian and Tibetan religions of Hinduism and Buddhism. Many other religions, including Christianity, Native Americans, and Taoists, have incorporated mandalas into their spiritual practices as well.
 
The simple act of coloring a picture can be quite beneficial in relieving stress and anxiety.One popular way to do this is to color mandalas and use it as a form of meditation.
Mandalas as a form of meditation are entering medicine as a healing tool. An increasing body of clinical trials suggests that meditation may reduce stress, combat depresion, reduce pain, and lower blood pressure.
 It may also boost the immune system and stimulate the release of melatonin, a hormone believed to slow cell aging and promote sleep.
 
How to Color a Mandala .There is not much to coloring a mandala for meditation purposes. It requires just a few simple steps and some time when you can be alone.
 
 1-Crayons, pencil crayons, chalks, pastels, paint, or markers in a variety of colors.
2- Print a mandala or use a mandala coloring book.
3- Find a quiet and comfortable place where you can work comfortably with no distractions.
4- Start coloring.
 
When coloring, try not to think too much about your choice of color and don’t worry about matching colors. Let your instincts guide you. After you begin with the first color, the rest will follow naturally.

Weekly House Assembly : RISE

At College du Leman, RISE stands for Respect, Internationalism, Spirit, and Excellence. These values are at the heart of our community. Alina and Leticia gave an excellent House Assembly on what this means : Respect, Internationalism, Spirit and Excellence.

 

 

Wellbeing. Week 3 ” An apple a day keeps the doctor away “

 Nurturing Healthy Session Week 3

If you really want to eat, keep climbing the fruits are on the top of the tree. Stretch your hands and keep stretching them! Success in on the top, keep going!!

In our community we believe that fruits are very important for the daily food intake, and as we are supporting a healthy lifestyle, every Tuesday and Saturday we are getting the fruits-sources of many essential nutrients that are under consumed, including potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, and folate.

Also, a healthy and well-balanced diet supports brain development!

In 2008 scientists have proved that a diet that includes fruit can also increase your focus in the classroom, so you will be able to learn new information and get higher test scores …

B.A.T Time

Yesterday LY 7 ladies had our Boarding Academic Tutor meeting with Ms. Mélanie Batey.

For the first meeting we focused on academic workload/choices and potential issues for the year as well as trying to start setting some targets.

Ms.Batey will be helping us with our academic issues for the whole year. Already looking forward to the meeting on next Thursday 🙂


Wellbeing , Second Session

 In our second Welbeing Session, the girls answered the four issues raised last week.  Using their answers, we set up a new action plan: 

1- Unlike us, who have grown up without the internet and mobile phones, our students were born into the age of the Internet and for them it is something intrinsic and second nature.  Students need 7/ 8 hours per night to sleep. Due to their lack of sleep we made a deal: During the week, they are not allowed to use mobile phones after 22.30.  Parents agree with this deal.

2- To help relax their body and mind after an intensive daily routine, we suggested that they take a shower and drink a tea or infusion before bedtime. Obviously, family calls/chats are important as well as attending yoga classes or meditating, all helping them feel more relaxed.

 3- They need at least five meals: breakfast, snack at school, lunch, snack after school, and dinner. We suggested that they avoid eating fast food and energy drinks. Best to drink water. Tuck shop is cancelled so they can buy their health food. 

4- They must practice more sports. Almost all of them have signed up for 1 or 2 activities during the week/weekend: fitness, volleyball, horse, soccer, tennis.

  Next week the students will make an evaluation of this action plan.

Wellbeing Program at Collège du Léman. We care about our students !!

Following our Pastoral Program, last Tuesday we had our first Wellbeing session: Nurturing Healthy Minds and Bodies. 

We began by asking them to give us a synonym for the word Wellbeing and what personal association they have with that word. Understanding the initial concept is important. Some of their responses included: feeling happy, healthy, calm, lively, vital, energetic, having a good sense of humor and being glad.

Following, we asked them questions like:

– How many hours do you sleep and what time do you approximately fall asleep?

– How do you manage to relax in the face of problems in general?

– How many meals do you have per day and what do you eat? What do you drink?

– What sports do you practice and how often? Do you practice yoga or meditation?

They will give us their answers in detail the following week and we will discuss it together

Lausanne , Olympic Museum

LY7  ladies visited yesterday the Olympic Museum in Lausanne  and  got the flame  of the Olympic spirit: Citius , altius , fortius (Faster, higher, stronger)

The Olympic Capital, Lausanne has been home to the IOC (International Olympic Committee) for 100 years and in 1993, the IOC founded its unique official museum on the banks of Lake Geneva. In 2013, The Olympic Museum was completely renovated with the most up-to-date facilities. Now on three floors, the exhibition presents the origin of the games, the competitions and the athletic spirit through over 150 screens and 1500 objects: The Olympic torches and medals of all The Olympic games, as well as the equipment of the most famous athletes. 

Happy Jeûne Genevois !!

      Jeûne Genevois (meaning Genevan fast) is a public holiday in the canton of Geneva, which occurs on the Thursday following the first Sunday of September. It dates back to the 16th century.

    Tarte aux pruneaux (plum pie)  is often served as dessert in Geneva homes on Jeûne genevois. Any knowledge as to how this tradition began seems to have been lost, although it may have come about as a means to allow women and housekeepers a way to spend the day in prayer, having cooked plum pies the day before (area plums being in season).

Yes, we’re open, again !

Collège du Léman is welcoming all the new and “old ” boarders . Villa Louis Yung 7 is finally starting to come alive again after the summer break!  Wishing all the boarders a fantastic, exciting, productive, and unforgettable New School Year 2019/2020

 

Wishing you all a fantastic Summer !!

Happy holidays! We wish you all a well-deserved and relaxing Summer holiday! Thank you to our LY7 girls : Mongoljin, Costanza, Lorena, Alessia, Ayaka, Laetitia, Zhe and Andrea for making this year so special and enjoyable for us. We shall miss you!

Collège du Léman, Made for Champions !! 🏆 💪

This summer, Collège du Léman will partner with the Juventus Academy to provide a unique opportunity in Geneva.

The Juventus Academy Geneva Training Camp is open to youngsters, boys and girls, aged 8 to 18, regardless of whether or not they already play competitive football. The method adopted by J-Academy for teaching children the skills to play football closely follows the children’s own development as young people, from their introduction to the game to physical maturity.

The camp offers a perfect environment for student fulfilment. After training sessions, Boarding students will have the opportunity to benefit from the international Summer Camp ambiance during evening activities and week-end excursions.

A great way to combine their passion for football and international friendship.

More information : camps@cdl.ch

Daniel Lozakovich’s majestic music-making has left critics and audiences spellbound. “Perfect mastery. An exceptional talent,” observed Le Figaro after a recent performance, while the Boston Globe praised the “poise, tonal purity, and technique to spare” of his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons at Tanglewood.
