Food is the language of love 💖✨

We are very lucky to have some talented chefs here in the house, and even luckier that they offered to plan & cook a beautiful al fresco meal for our lovely little boarding family! 🥰🌸

Bia (Head Chef), along with Regina & Parisa cooked a 3 course meal for the whole house and it went down VERY well 💕

Making the most of our lovely garden and the warm summer nights, the girls took a break from revision to enjoy this beautifully prepared meal.

Here is a short video showcasing the special evening 🌸🥰

 

To start, the girls prepared fresh burrata & cherry tomato salads, accompanied with tasty garlic, pesto & tomato bruschetta, topped with parmesan & olive oil 🍅🧀

Next, Bia prepared her signature pasta dish made with chicken, garlic, mushrooms, onions, truffle butter, tomatoes & a touch of her own magic. Creamy, delicious & indulging – definitely a winning dish on Masterchef ⭐

Finally, we were spoilt to some delicious almond & dark chocolate brownies – although these didn’t last long at all… 😂🍫

In a few weeks time, our G12’s will be graduating from CDL, so evenings like this are even more special ⭐

A BIG thank you to Bia for leading this beautiful event, and thank you to Parisa & Regina for assisting – especially when it came to cutting the onions  🧅😂💕

 

 

A weekend full of talent 🎤✨⭐

We had a great weekend showcasing the talent from the girls in Louis Degallier ✨

On Saturday night, Parisa performed a beautiful version of Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’.

Accompanied by some teachers from Collège du Léman, this wonderful version was very well received by the audience. This was a ticketed event where all the money was donated to a local charity.

We are all very proud of Parisa’s talents and her commitment to the school’s charitable events 🥰

 

Next, we have Sakura who went to play golf on Sunday with some fellow boarders. As you can see, she showed she had good technique with her golf swing. A lovely way to spend a Sunday morning 💛

Just close to Chamonix, we travelled to a lovely outdoor race track where Beatriz got to go Go Karting! We had a mix of sunshine and showers, but despite the rain, the students absolutely loved it.

Beatriz had 2 x 10 minute sessions on the track and finished in the top 3 for her race. Well done Bea! ⭐⭐⭐

 

 

 

“Quizzy Delights: Know your housemates!”

We had an amazing time organizing and doing a quiz night in our boarding house!
For once the girls could keep their phones during the meeting and use them to compete against each other. 📱
It was a fun-filled evening where we discovered interesting facts about the girls.
We found out that one of our residents is the biggest cheese lover. 🧀
And let me tell you, we also uncovered the secret of who showers the longest, revealing the reigning champion of prolonged shower sessions. 🚿
The quiz night brought us closer together, allowing us to laugh, learn, and appreciate the unique quirks and interests of each one. It was an unforgettable experience that fostered a strong sense of community in our boarding house. 🤗🤗

       

Trip down Memory Lane

This past weekend was a mix of fun and productivity for our girls.
Sakura, the talented baker of the group, decided to treat everyone to some delicious cotton candy. It was a sweet and fluffy treat that brought smiles to everyone’s faces.

Parisa, on the other hand, spent her weekend cuddling with the neighbor’s dog. It was a relaxing and comforting experience, and she enjoyed every moment of it.


We also decided to make some vegan healthy banana bread, which turned out to be a success. It was a guilt-free snack that satisfied their cravings without compromising their health.

   

Later during the weekend, we took a trip down memory lane. We reflected on our most beautiful and fun moments in boarding school, reliving our memories and laughing at our silly mistakes. It was a heartwarming experience that brought us closer together.

Amidst all the fun, the girls didn’t forget about their upcoming exams. They spent some time studying and preparing for the challenges ahead. It was a reminder that productivity and fun can go hand in hand.

Overall, it was a weekend filled with sweet treats, cuddles, healthy snacks, productivity, and cherished memories.
