Here at VDL we have girls from all over the world.
More than 30 different nationalities in just one house.
Here in Boarding we not only share time together, but also our cultures and traditions.
We are super proud of our girls for making Villa du Lac an amazing multicultural Boarding House.
Our girls really make the most of their social hour in the house.
Some of them enjoy practicing their skills with different instruments. Sofiya, was enjoying a piano session today during her social time.
Some of the girls also joined us for a board game where they had to solve a murder mystery.
In the mean time, many of our girls were enjoying a dance session in their room.
Super fun night at Villa du Lac.
Today some of our girls presented their wellbeing projects.
Alina and Lisa presented their powerpoint on the topic of “Acceptance”.
We also had the pleasure to learn more about Farah’s country, Azerbaijan.
This month we are focusing on Bullying and Diversity.
Learning to respect each other, as well as learning about each others cultures.
Dimmed lights, candles and different sounds that surround you.
We were brought to the present moment and were able to leave the stress behind the door.
It started to get darker earlier so our activity leader Dia introduced this method of taking photos with lights to us.
Today we were baking Pastéis de nata aka Pastel de nata – a traditional Portuguese egg custard tart pastry.
Some of the girls are enjoying home made sushi, as well as some freshly baked banana bread cookies.
A super treat with some hot tea for the cold weather.
One of our very talented boarders, Lynn, who delighted us with her incredible piano skills.
Today, after the halloween themed dinner night, the kids got to go trick or treat.
We got visitors from Concha, New Portena, Champ de Bois, Leman, Old Portena and Olympus.

Loads of candy, smiles and good times.
