An early start this morning for our girls in LY7 to get ready for their very special graduation day, we watched this ceremony live from our boarding house, it was an amazing moment to see them in their beautiful dresses and graduation gowns. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Sophie Bernardo, Varvara Timoshkina, Petra krizkova and Polina Ryzhuk for their achievement and we wish them the very best in the future.
A wonderful long weekend at Collège Du Léman, so many things were organised, a trip to Copenhagen, Montreux Castle, golf, biking and much more… We were delighted to have the on-site pool open with a lifeguard for our students to enjoy! At LY7 we had a sound bath meditation in the lovely outdoor garden. As always brunch was exquisite. Varya made us some homemade frozen drinks this afternoon, they were just yummy 🙂 overall it was an enchanting weekend.
Last academic Pillar 5 will focus on TIME IN!
This pillar allows students to reflect on what they experience in their own inner world, which includes their feelings, thoughts, perceptions, memories, beliefs, hope, dreams, desires, motivations, longings ect… these feelings can occur even without them being aware of it. The lack of self-awareness entails the failure to see the patterns in our behaviors and thinking. As a result, we risk making choices that are not aligned with what we really are and with what we really want. When we develop the habit to pay attention to these inner experiences we become more self-aware. This can help us have more control over the decisions and choices we make preventing us from being at the mercy of our own feelings, desires and external negative pressure.
This is a very powerful exercise that will support students to make safe and responsible choices.
A busy weekend for our students studying hard and preparing for the approaching exams! however, we managed to find some time to enjoy the weather in our amazing outdoor garden, the girls joined in this Sunday, the sound bath workshop to unwind the stress cumulated throughout the week. We also took part in May fitness challenge highest score of jumping jacks performed by Petra 61 jumps in 30seconds Sophie scored 47 jumps and Rym 43 jumps. It was a nice moment shared with the LY7 girls, creating lots of memories before end of term.
Wonderful afternoon LY7 girls & LDG had a rehearsal for their talent show performance, I was very impressed with the rhythm!! I won’t say more. Check our blog on Tuesday or Wednesday evening to watch their act. The girls also enjoyed a sound bath experience to unwind, release and reboot. It was a very relaxing moment.
