The girls have arrived back from the break refreshed and looking forward to the final, sunny term of the school year. It’s lovely to have you back, ladies!
Last week the girls took part in the latest House Competition – the Talent Show. Great fun was had by all and it was fantastic to see the acts from all the other houses. Well done girls!
While most of the girls jetted away for the holidays, Saba, Romina, Alessia, Crystal, Helen and Celine decided to head up to the mountains to enjoy a week of winter fun.
They took part in a week of skiing, snowboarding and curling, to name just a few. A great time was had by all!
This weekend saw the introduction of a new Saturday activity: choir.
Celine, Romina, Helen, Natalina, Olivia and Scarlett all took part and loved it – maybe we have a New Portena girl band in the making!
On Sunday our Grade 9s visited the Red Cross Museum in Geneva and learnt about the work they do across the globe.
Another weekend spent in the glorious sun over the mountains of Crans Montana.
The girls had a great time during their first Ski Weekend away in Crans Montana enjoying a range of activities including skiing, snowboarding and ice skating.
We can’t wait to get back up on the mountains on Friday!
The first weekend of the new term has come and gone and today the girls enjoyed a trip to the new aquarium Aquatis, in Lausanne.
We learnt about freshwater fish and habitats across all continents of the globe, and some of the girls even decided to be part of the Komodo Dragon exhibit.
Welcome back to the boarding house everyone and happy new year!
