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.

Ski Touring

Ski Touring classes complement the winter activities offered at the Ecole. They are extremely rewarding - students get great exercise ascending slopes and great rides down enjoying powder runs.

Gravitational words

On February 11th, 2016, the first detection of gravitational waves was announced. The news had a great impact worldwide, as a revolutionary era for our understanding of Nature is now about to begin. In fact, the ability to observe gravitational waves will open new eyes on the cosmos, allowing us to learn much more on, e.g., black hole, neutron stars, supernovae and the origin and the evolution of the Universe.

Syria Andacht

I think that on some level, every educator followed the path they did with the shared hope of inspiring their students. If we are really lucky, our students inspire us.

About five years ago, Jordan Hattar came into my classroom at the end of the school day. I hadn't seen him in a few years since he had left the school where I was teaching in California at the end of 9th grade. He had come to tell me that he had just returned from a trip to the south of Sudan, which had not yet broken off to become the country of Southern Sudan. He had met one of the "Lost Boy" refugees and been invited to come with him on a relief trip to his home country. Jordan had raised money for the trip and for the mosquito nets and sandals they distributed. "I wanted you to know," he explained, "because your class is the first place I ever heard the word 'Sudan.'"
