Healthy body, healthy mind

Hello everyone!

Tonight we had a small cooking session in the theme of the first pillar “Healthy body and mind”. Together we made granola bars, avocado on toast and banana/avocado smoothies!


We ended the night with a 5-minute meditation session to ensure a good night rest zzz…

Wellbeing Pillar 1 – Nurturing Healthy Bodies and Minds

We are now approaching the third week of delivering the first pillar of our wellbeing programme in our Boarding Houses – ‘Nurturing Healthy Bodies and Minds’. 

Throughout this pillar we will be ensuring our students understand the importance of taking care of our bodies and our minds in our day to day lives. Furthermore, we will be highlighting sport participation, sleeping patterns, nutrition and relaxation methods, as sub topics. With the students, we will discuss and discover how all these could play a key role in maintaining a healthy balance.

This week we will be asking the students how a healthy balanced diet can help with sports performance, as well as academic performance, brain development and growth. We will show the videos below to the students.

Timur and Antoni are the student wellbeing advocates for our Boarding House and they will be presenting in our wellbeing session again this week. They will be sharing their experiences and answering a range of questions regarding the importance of good nutrition for sports and everyday life.

Friday is movie night!

Good evening everyone,

Last Wednesday we had a formal dinner, the food was delicious and the girls looked amazing!

Tonight, some of the girls cooked their own food and afterwards we had a movie night with popcorn! We’re looking forward to the weekend which is filled with all sorts of activities and … the first house sports competition of the year!

Much love,

Terri, Sarah, María, Marie

Everyone arrived!

All of our girls arrived!
Last night we had our first house meeting during which we did a small quiz to break the ice and get the know each other.

Today, they had their first day of school and some of the girls will join their first activity tonight!

Lots of love,

Terri, Sarah, María and Marie

Today, Luisa, Roberta and Skyler joined us for some lake (and on shore) activities, the day started cloudy but thankfully skies cleared up after the girls came out of the water! Afterwards, we had a lovely brunch with the whole boarding family 🙂
