Karim, Nadim, Omar, Jules, Jonathan & Nihad – Congratulations!

It felt like yesterday that we welcomed you into Franconis and this morning it made me incredibly proud to see you on stage, throwing your caps into the air.

Ad Astra!

A tassle is worth the hassle!

Their Last Boarding Assembly

As all of the Franconis boys will be graduating this year,tonight was their last Boarding Assembly!

Looking good under the sun on their way to campus.

Boy band vibes.

Having all six of them in the same photo! A rare occurence.

A lovely rendition of Habanera to start the assembly off.

Jules and Jeff from Leman presenting France! (Behind the scenes look: they argued for about an hour about which characteristics defined the Frenhe)

Nowruz Mubarak!

While this greeting is a little late (Nowruz was on Monday evening), we celebrated Nowruz with our community of students this evening by enjoying Irani food as our cuisine of choice for tonights International Dinner!

Wellbeing Pillar 4: Online Safety

As we continue with Pillar 4, this evening in our House Assembly, we discussed Scams, Security and Identity Theft.

Our Advocate, Nadim, led us through a Kahoot quiz that had us answer the following questions:

  • What is the strongest password?
  • ______ are messages that try to trick you into providing sensitive information
  • When shopping online, which payment option is generally the safest?
  • Facebook can freely use your photos if you do not decline this in your privacy settings- true or false
  • What does “Accept all cookies” mean?
  • What is catfishing?
  • What is the best way to know if a website is secure?
  • How can you be found online?

Nadim wondering who answered “a lovely snack” to the questions about cookies.

The Kahoot was both fun (the Boys can get quite competitive) and informative, and went a long way to promote our understanding of how to keep our data secure and how to accurately identify threats to that security.
