Yesterday evening some of the senior girls attended a Presentation by top US universities, this was their only presentation in Geneva. It was a great opportunities for them to ask the representatives questions about the curriculums 📝
Friday evening we enjoyed an international barbecue while listening to students and staff singing.
At cooking and baking we had fun using our creative sides to make a delicious pastry!
During our biking session we spent time in the sun while appreciating the surroundings of nature around us.
It was the perfect weekend to spend time on the Banana Boats, where we tried our best not to fall in!
Today we had the third session of Wellbeing. 💆♀️
Everyone mediated for 10 minutes in silence. Then, we sat outside and coloured the different parts of a black and white clock, to have a visual idea of their schedules. House Parents and Tutors shared healthy coping mechanisms to better manage sadness and stress when feeling overwhelmed.

As part of our Wellbeing Program, today we talked about how we manage our time.
We gathered outside enjoying the good weather and drew the different parts that make up our day. Within our small groups, we recognized how we can improve our routines to feel more organized and less overwhelmed.
It was a good exercise 🙂
