Greetings from an autumnal Clarens.
12 October 2020
We have passed another week of the first half term and it is now only 4 days until we break up for half term holidays. Every one is looking forward to a bit of a break, be it here in our October Half Term Camp or somewhere with friends or family.
Last week we had the Inter House Dance Competition which was recorded and then shown to everyone in tutor groups so that all students could vote. There were wonderful performances and we are really proud of Victoria who did the solo dance for her house, Minerva, and who won the solo performance!
Victoria has been dancing for 12 years. Dancing for Victoria, she says, is where she found her happiness and where she feels most relaxed. She hopes to continue dancing throughout her life. The particular dance she performed is one that she practised troughout the whole summer holidays. The dance is called Jinse which means the melody in Chinese. It is based on an ancient poem by Chinese poet Li Shangyin. It describes a young girl's dream about being a butterfly and waking up finding that time has passed so fast which makes her feel sad.
On Friday afternoon Nicole, Zianne and Ference went to the Villeneuve climbing centre with their Y8 classmates and had a wonderful afternoon.
On Saturday Nicolas, Clark, Aleks, Mattia and Amelia went on their first International Award training walk in the Vallon de Villard area along with many of their day school class mates. It was a very wet day which made the day a little challenging, but they all came back buzzing having had an amazing day.
Karen, Hannah, Tony and Nicole also decided to go on a walk in Les Pleiades and did the Circuit Prantin. They were lucky the rain stayed away for most of the walk and the four of them had a hot chocolate and ice cream to reward themselves after the long uphill part of the walk! Saturday afternoon saw Egor and Kostia chilling in the common room in front of Tom & Jerry - possibly the longest they sat still in a long time.
And in the afternoon Y8-10 went to Maison Cailler, to do a tour of the museum followed by the Chocolate Champions workshop!
The evening on the girls' floor, following the chocolate frenzy, was then a little crazier than usual :)
