Turning the bad into good!

Last night disaster struck as Coraline removed her jumper from the washing machine only to discover it had shrunk! Coraline and Andrea combined their artistic flairs and created a jumper for Coraline’s cuddly bunny to keep it warm in these autumnal evenings. Good job girls!

Motto and Logo Competition

Well done to all our New Portena girls for taking part in the Motto Competition; the first House Challenge of the year. Diana, Katya, Tanya and Margie had amazing confidence to get up on stage in front of all the boarding community to explain our motto and logo and we came 5th! Amazing effort girls!

And congratulations to our neighbours Old Portena for taking home the win! 

A fun filled first weekend!

The girls have had a great weekend getting a glimpse of the activities they can take part in throughout the school year! This weekend we’ve enjoyed Horse Riding, Tennis and Body Shaping; today Jasmine, Becky and Coraline also headed into Geneva to take part in a treasure hunt around the city while doing some sightseeing along the way.

New Portena are now having a relaxing evening in the house before school starts again tomorrow – the girls are looking forward to starting their new activity programme this week and a chance to visit Chamonix and Mer de Glace on Thursday!

Let the New Term Begin!

We hope you have all had a wonderful summer break and we are looking forward to filling New Portena with fun and enthusiasm!

Here is the new team eagerly awaiting your arrival!

Costanza, Tharyne, Terri & Jemma

Terri, the House Parent of New Portena, is joined this year by Costanza (far left) our lovely, musical Italian who studied in the UK; Tharyne from Brazil who has previously studied pharmacy, and Jemma from the UK who grew up in Belgium.

We can’t wait to welcome you all over the next few days!
