Welcome Back BBQ 🥙🎵

Today we celebrated the start of the year with the annual Welcome Back Barbecue with lots of food, music, and activities for all the students. Some of our borders had different charity stands to help, for example, the victims of the devastating Morrocan earthquake.

Two of our girls, Haruka and Akmaral participated with their Charity Club making bracelets with the kids and painting their faces. We can assure everyone, volunteering and young students participating in the charity event had a lot of fun and a lovely time.

If you joined us to celebrate the beginning of the year or participated in the event and donated to charity, thank you very much for your collaboration.

Another great weekend at CDL!

Another weekend is slowly coming to an end. We had so much fun at our weekend activities! We also got to do some community service around our area. It is really important to take care of our surroundings as much as ourselves and anyone who needs it.

We are ready for the week ahead!

Here are a few pictures:

Wellbeing Pillar 1: Nurturing Healthy Bodies and Minds – The Sleep Challenge 🍵📵

During our house assembly last night we discussed with the girls the importance of having a good night’s sleep and how it can help us during the following day to have more energy, be able to focus in class and be more present during the day.

During the past week, the girls were challenged to follow one of the tips in the picture.

Fields changed the warm glass of milk for a nice cup of tea before bed and Haruka turned off her phone every night around 9 pm and had an average of 9 hours of sleep every night. The results were precise: both girls had much more energy during the day and were able to be more productive during the afternoon.

They all agreed that having a good night routine is essential as it helps us to be much more efficient during the following day.

Active weekend 🍪🎾🏎️

After a rainy week, the sun was shining and the girls spent a lot of time out and inside the house with different activities.

Fields and Akmaral started the weekend early in the morning playing Tennis, one of the most precious sports here at CDL.

Emma and Etoile had fun baking some cinnamon rolls for the house and exercising on Sunday with Bodyshaping and a Relaxation activity.

But the fun started at 12:30 when Samira, Kseniia, Fields, Akmaral, and Sofiya arrived in Viry to do some Karting. Speed, adrenaline, laughter, friendship, and lots of fun made the perfect combination for a perfect Sunday afternoon.

Now the house is very quiet and the girls are getting ready for the start of the week, looking forward to the next weekend where more exciting activities will be waiting for them.

Taking care of our Lake Geneva 🌍

This weekend, a group of students took part in the Lake Geneva clean-up, where they helped set up tables, tents, and benches and cleaned the surroundings.

Haruka took part in this initiative and, with her friends, spent her Saturday morning helping preserve our lovely lake.

Dinner in the house 🍳

Today marks the first “Dinner in the House” event in Villa Saint-Loup. While we usually have to go for dinner every night to the cafeteria, once a month dinner comes to us. This little event at home is the perfect opportunity for the girls to bond and have a laugh in the comfort of our house.

Tonight we were delighted by an amazing lasagna made by our kitchen staff. Thank you very much for all the amazing food you cook daily for us ❤️.

But the evening didn’t end there as Akmaral was thirsty for revenge. Somehow, slowly but surely, she is convincing the rest of the girls in the house to play Monopoly cards with us. This time Sofiya joined the game; it was her first time and she didn’t do bad at all (keep in mind she was playing against two professional players). This time the end of the game was 1:1 for Miss Maria and Akmaral. Fair to say both girls were conspiring against Miss Maria.

Oh là là, nous parlons français 🇫🇷

As part of our plan to promote French at home, we’ve put around the kitchen little stickers with the names of the different elements we can find in our kitchen, such as the fridge, the glasses, plates, or the dishwasher.

We will also try to use French as a language of communication with the girls in the house once a week (Google is welcome in our conversations).

À bientôt !!

Verbier Mountain Weekend was a blast!

We just spent the weekend in the mountains and it was an amazing trip! We got to try out new activities, we learned new things about ourselves and the people around us. The weather was amazing, we went hiking in the mountains, climbed up walls, biked down the mountain slope, we did all sorts of sports including an Olympic competition on Sunday morning!

This was the best beginning of the year ever!

Saint Loup 4&9!

Jeûne Genevois 🥧

Thursday 7th was a bank holiday as we celebrated Jeûne Genevois in the Geneva canton. The girls made the most of the excellent weather and enjoyed our beautiful city, Versoix. Some of them preferred staying home resting, studying and preparing their luggage for the weekend because… we are going to Verbier!

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves and let’s talk about today. The sun has been shining brightly and intensely for a few days now in Geneva, and as we know that autumn is just around the corner, the girls don’t want to miss the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine with their friends.

In the house, we had an exciting game of Monopoly Cards, a game that if you don’t know, you’re missing out on all the excitement! On this occasion, Miss Maria was the clear winner after 7 intense games (4-3). Better luck next time, Akmaral!

Friday night 🍕🧩

Last Friday we wanted to celebrate the first Friday of all of the girls being back in the house. We wanted to celebrate this little exciting moment with some pizzas and board games.

Is there any better plan than making our own pizzas while the girls share their stories?

In addition, on Saturday we welcome to the Saint Loup 9 house Akmaral. We hope you feel at home with us❤️

Kindest regards,

Saint Loup 9 team

First day of High School 📚🏫

The first day of school is never easy, but today a new chapter starts in the lives of our girls.

It’s the last first day of High School for Bruna, who will be graduating next June. We know she will be ready for any path she chooses. We can’t wait to accompany her on this last run.

Today, was also the first day of school with us for Meli, Fields, Kseniia, Sofiya, and Haruka. The girls had a lovely breakfast together and got ready for the day with amazing energy in the morning.
