On Saturday December 14th we had an amazing time at the Winter Ball! All the girls looked beautiful!
Scarlett and Yasmina had the chance to speak in front of the whole Boarding where they presented lovely speeches spoken from their hearts. Really well done girls!
More photos to come in the Villa du Lac Times December edition!
Singing a Duet
A big congratulations to Sue and Fiona who sang beautifully at the Boarding Assembly. They worked hard, practiced a lot and sang a really nice duet together. Great work girls!
Tanya had the chance to talk about her experience helping in the Dominican Republic where she expressed how she had the opportunity to make a positive impact in someone else’s life. She explained how she helped build and repair a woman’s house who had been experiencing a lot of challenges in her life. It was a fulfilling experience for her and she did a great job inspiring others to go out of their comfort zone and take part in community service. Great job Tanya!
A few weeks ago the girls picked names to buy a small present anonymously for another girl from the House. After the Christmas Dinner tonight we exchanged our gifts for the Secret Santa. They really enjoyed this moment as they tried to figure out who was their Secret Santa.
Also…. the House sweaters have arrived! The girls look great in their vibrant yellow sweaters!
On Sunday some of our students went on an excursion to Gruyère, a beautiful medieval town, well known for the cheese which it’s named after. Our girls, Yasmina, Hai Ngan, Fabiola and Angela enjoyed the sunny day at this beautiful spot where they also had the chance to share a Fondue.
Also, they had the opportunity to visit Maison Cailler, the Chocolate Factory where they learned about how the chocolate is made. At the end of the tour they were able to taste some of the delicious sweets of Cailler.
We are happy to see that the girls enjoyed this excursion!
This weekend some of our girls went to Europa Park and the Christmas market in Freiburg. It was a great opportunity for them to travel with friends from other Boarding Houses as well. They had a lot of fun!
Sofia, Maeva, Rebeca and Peggy enjoyed the roller coasters, the attractions in the park and came back very happy.
