6 Day Hike
Following in Geheeb’s footsteps the Ecole reasserts the worth of walking in the wilderness with the 6 day hike. Again, groups went to Northern Italy and to many parts of Switzerland. The weather was mostly sunny and warm, but many groups were surprised to wake up to snow on the 4th morning.
New service vehicle for the Ecole
Thanks to a number of generous donations, last Monday we were in a position to celebrate a milestone in terms of mobility.
Started during intensive week in October and completed throughout the winter, the Ecole has a new outdoor chess set.
As you like it
As Mitarbeiters and students return for the last trimester of the academic year, we remember the bright light with which we ended the last semester.
Behind the scenes, off the ski-slopes, many students were rehearsing for the annual Shakespeare Play. Hours and hours of practice - learning lines, learning to embody characters and develop their own relationship with the roles. In addition many students, including a few mitarbeiters, developed the stage design. All was organised and conducted by mitarbeiter Meghan Deere.
The Ecole d’Humanité
The Ecole d’Humanité is a progressive, international boarding school situated in the heart of the Swiss Alps. 130 Students and 45 teachers from some 23 different countries live together in a dynamic community that fosters the discovery and development of individual talents – academic, artistic, practical, athletic, and social – in an atmosphere that encourages self-determination, innovation, and tolerance. Whether modeling projectile motion in a calculus based physics class or performing in the annual Shakespeare play, summiting a 4000 meter peak or hammering red hot iron on a giant anvil, Ecole students actively pursue their passions in a setting that is both challenging and liberating.
