February Boarding Assembly

On the first Wednesday of every month, we get the lovely opportunity to come together as a community and share a variety of things with each other.

On our way to the Assembly (To see Omar slipping down a moment later – read to the end)

On time and looking fine.

We had cultural presentations from Enrique and Parga from Léman.

A club promotion from Otabek, Abay and Yosuke about the PR Club.


A presentation from Amanda about her passion and talent for Art.

And a lovely presentation from Martin about Football For All, a charity that he is passionate about.

Don’t worry, he’s ok! Thank you for reading this far!



Blue Skies For Our Skiers And Snowboarders.

The boys enjoyed another consecutive weekend on the slopes of Fiesch.

Karim, Jules and Omar shared their snaps from the mountain.

Omar was very happy with his progression on his second weekend ever on the board.


In the meantime Nadim and Jonathan stayed in campus preparing important academic tasks and trying new recipes at home.


We also invite you to have a look at the 2nd Edition of “Inside Boarding” the Newsletter made by our students. Don’t miss out. Here’s the link.

Building Positive Friendships

In our House Meeting this Wednesday, we discussed our Third Wellbeing Pillar: Building Positive Friendships.

Being an international community, we also discussed the importance of developing friendships with people from other natioanlities and cultures.

We started off the session by answering the following questions:

  • How does the boarding house support and encourage international friendships?
  • What advice would you give future students coming into an international school environment?
  • Can you think of some examples of famous international friendships?
  • Self-Reflection – Do you embrace the international community, or do you prefer the convenience of building friendships within your own culture and language?

Additionally, each of us wrote down three adjectives that we felt describe a good friend.

The Boys, here to eat cookies and answer questions.

“I think he means SOCIALISING”

The adjectives our house felt were the most important characteristics of a good friend.


Gone Fiesch-ing!

This weekend we took a trip up to Fiesch to enjoy our first Mountain Weekend of the year!

It also happened to be one of the coldest weekends, with tempertures reaching between -10°C to -15°C, though the wind chill made it feel colder.

This also meant plenty of fresh snow though!

The Boys, excited early on Saturday morning. They were up and ready before I even knocked on their door!

Karim’s reaction once the cold really set in!

A little morning tranquility at the Aletsch Arena slopes.

That tranquility quickly turned to high octane skiing once the wind kicked up a bit.

Some multicultural tea to chase the cold out of our bodies. The sign really helped us avoid any confusion.

Going down into Fiesch for a walk and grocery run.

Super interesting and old buildings found throughout Fiesch. Apparently they are built this way to prevent animals from getting at the stored food inside.

A water mill that had frozen over.

Teach a man to Fiesch…

First Boarding Assembly Of 2023!

Tonight we had our first Boarding Assembly of the new year!

The Boarders were welcomed back by Amir from Léman playing the Turkish March by W. A Mozart.

Late, but looking good.

Antonio with Nicholas and Melissa reciting the lovely poems they had written about diversity.

Last, but not least, our very own Nihad went up on stage and did a cultural presentation about Azerbaijan. He did a great job and we are super proud of him!
