Fête de l’Escalade and the Famous Marmite

Tonight we celebrated “Escalade” a traditional Geneva festival that celebrates the victory of the Geneva republic against the Savoy’s Army in 1602. Each year we buy a chocolate marmite full of candies. By tradition, the youngest and the eldest person in the room smash it.

Here is a link to have a better view on the full story that happened more than 400 years ago !!! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Escalade

Saturday activities

In Champs des Bois, Saturday is always synonyme of adventure, discovery and excitement. Usually, our students always experience new activities or try to improve the one they already master.

Thanksgiving 🙏

Tonight we celebrated Thanksgiving.

We had the chance to attended a very nice dinner prepared by our catering team. Of course we had the traditional turkey 🦃 , but also a multitude of very different and colourful dishes. During the meal we also explained were this tradition came from and what did it represent for the American people and who it was such a big event each year for them.

Before go to sleep, the kids took a moment to right down what there were grateful for (but it’s a secret 🤫).

Sweet time 🧁

Today Liam and Nicholas went to the Villa du Lac boarding house, to bake some nice sweet muffins with white chocolate 🍫 and strawberries 🍓 !!!

Simply Delicious 😋

Poney Time

What a nice way to tart the weekend, by riding a magnificent white poney.

But riding is not the only thing to do, taking care of the animal is also a very nice, sweet and lovely activity that helps our students to show everything they have learned in the boarding house : love, compassion and care.

School Path

Each day before and after school, our Champs des Bois student are taking this little nice path in the forest. It’s a nice and peaceful moment outside were the can admire nature, meet some squirrels 🐿  or ducks 🦆.

We are impatient to show you the same amazing picture full of fresh white snow.
