Busy weekend!

What a weekend full of fun and sports!

Stacy, Martina, and Zia went to the famous “Course de l’Escalade” on Sunday and did well! Look at them, smiling and focusing on their objective!

While Regina, Ameli and Gia went to Europa-park to have some fun too!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

The Wednesday assembly was a little bit different today. December is coming soon which means… Christmas too! It was time to decorate the House! Everyone helped!

But first, the girls prepared some delicious popcorn to give us the energy to decorate the whole house.

Then, Martina put Christmas songs to get us into the Christmas spirit and… LET’S GO!

To conclude this beautiful evening, we had a show from our new Christmas trio. A round of applause for them please!

 

 

 

 

Weekend is here… Let’s go outside!

Louis Yung 7 was quite empty this weekend because the girls went outside to enjoy the sunny weather.

Martina decided to be part of the running activity…

While Ameli was enjoying her Interlaken’s trip…

And Stacy did some shopping for Chritmas at Montreux!

 

Pillar 2 : Diversity.

Noticing differences is normal but there are many ways to be an ally.
 
While last week we reflected on how the sense of diversity is part of a global world, this week we will reflect with the students on the notion of diversity itself. It’s easy to label diversity as something uniquely linked to ethnicity, creed or sexuality… However, there are many, many other forms of diversity.
Simple things such as personal tastes or hobbies are a source of diversity, and these are at least as visible as the above-mentioned ones.
Therefore, why do we bear a judgement towards someone who doesn’t have the same religion or the same beliefs and not towards someone who doesn’t listen to the same music or supports another sports team?
The video below gives a simple explanation on the real notion of differences and diversity.

We all want to be allies in this crusade and all our work in terms of charity and community service does pay a great service to bring us together, acknowledging the differences but strengthening our similarities. That should be the key and that is the way that as a school we’re paving.
On a more individual level, we believe the answer lies in the following video.

University advising

Today, Eva and Regina had an important meeting with Mrs. Batey, our CDL University Advisor to discuss their plans for the future. As you can see, they are very focused and probably thinking about which university they should choose for next year!

 

 

Wellbeing Programme Pillar 2 – Fighting bullying and promoting diversity

Last week we started our 2nd Pillar of our Wellbeing Programme.

It is a very delicate topic but it’s good to be able to talk about it openly and objectively. As in pillar 1, we have two take away points. This week we discussed about Take Away point 1

Take away point 1 – Integration and diversity are part of the international agenda of the world’s most important institutions.  

We talk about it at a lower level, at schools, work and public places. However, that topic is at the heart of the identity of all the major international organizations and that is something that sometimes we overlook to consider diversity something to think of at an individual level. Beyond the political message on the importance of diversity, institutions like the UN have a policy of promoting diversity in their work force and enabling all types of people to access job position within their ranks and therefore setting the example on integration and teamwork.   

Globally what we want to achieve with this point is that students understand that Diversity and Integration are present far beyond the school environment or our individual background and that it’s a top priority in the world today. Sometimes, this might be overlooked, and we believe it’s important they acknowledge that the work and reflection being done here is echoed in the World Leading Institutions.
