(R)evolution: Ecole Reunion June 25th - 26th 2016
The Ecole always was and still remains a revolutionary school. And: the Ecole evolves, existing in an ongoing process of development. This evolution is directed on the one hand by the Ecole’s deep roots in a proven legacy and on the other by the ever-changing challenges of its environment.
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.
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 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.
