Trick πŸ‘» or Treat 🍬

The light were off, the fog was at each conner and strange sound could be heard from the bushes…. We thought it would be the perfect moment to go and get some candies from the scared neighbours πŸ˜¬πŸ˜°πŸ™€πŸ˜§

You can see that we tried our best to look like our favorite character and give our best to get as much candies as we could carry.

Note: Candies shoud be eaten with moderation as they are bad for teeth πŸ˜‰

Personalised Pumpkins πŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒπŸŽƒ

Today on this very special day we gave the opportunity to each kid to express his craeativity. The four boys, that stayed with us for the weekend, got a little pumpkin that they could designed as they wished. But to avoid any “design incidents” during the process, we had a little drawing so they could be sure of what they wanted as a final result.
After a democratical vote πŸ—³ between all the residents of Champs des Bois, we choosed Zhiyu’s pumpkin design (the one on the left) as the most scary one πŸ‘».
But as a team we decided to represent all four of our pumpkins to the boarding competition, as a sign of the RISE values: Respect, Internationalism, Team Spirit and Excellence, and it was also a reference to our Rise statue on the Campus. πŸ˜‰

Smiles πŸ˜ƒ, Positive vibes πŸ₯° and Creativity πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨ helped us to enjoy this moment and spend a nice afternoon all together.


Old Times & Modern Kids

On this sunny autumn day, we went to Vevey, a very calm and neat town near the LΓ©man Lake, where Sir Charles Chaplin (aka Charlie Chaplin or Charlot) choose to move with his familly many years ago.
We could visit his sumptuous villa that was transformed in to a museum and a large than life cinema studio.
Even if most of the kids were to young to know Charlie Chaplin or even his movies, they could discover some of his most iconic artworks like Modern Times, the Dictator or the Kid.


Jump to celebrate πŸŽ‰

Nicholas had his birthday πŸŽ‚ just before the October break, but unfortunately he couldn’t celebrate it with friends. We finally could catch up with all his friend and go to have a very fun and sweet time at the Jump Spot in Lausanne.

Pre-Olympics Games πŸ…πŸ†

Even if the olympics games already finished, our kids are getting a highly professional and intense training for the next one.

After his woodcraft experience, Valerii took a heavy ball to train his pass skills ⚽️.

As soon as Mikaella and Firdavs finished to ride their Horse 🐎, they didn’t waste any minute and immediately started to practice loops in Basketball πŸ€ .

Zhiyu and Nicholas have been practicing ping-pong πŸ“ for weeks now. They are more than ready to play single and double matches agains older students.

Happy October Break !!!

It feels like summer ended only yesterday and here we are already at the October Break !!!Β  After a very energetic start of the year, we arrived at the mid-term and deserve a nice break, so we can take a moment to enjoy the view and see all those beautiful green leaves from our garden turn orange and yellow.
We will be back next week fresh and full energy.

We all wish a great October break, boys and girls from Champs des Bois

Happy Birthday Nicholas !!!

Today we celebrate Nicholas’ 10th Birthday !!!

This afternoon, after school, he shared a nice chocolate cake with all his house mates. A nice sweet moment before flying away to Portugal for the Surf Camp for the October Break.
As a big LEGO fan, he received 2 brand new Ninjago sets and he showed all his lego skills to build it in the blink of an eye.

We wish him to have an amazing break and a nice Surf Camp.

Fun in the Tree Tops!

We had a massive amount of fun climbing and zipping from tree to tree this Sunday! Well done to everyone, it took some real physical effort on some of the obstacles and also was pretty high up off the ground!
