Complementing the academic programme and after-school clubs, we dedicate the weekends to relaxation, friendships, discovery, and organised leisure activities. We take the time to listen to the children, devising a dynamic programme in response to their wishes.
Typically, children may participate in the following whilst at La Garenne:
Team and individual sports:
football, basketball, volleyball, rugby, hockey, ultimate frisbee, baseball, tennis, swimming, badminton
Adventure and mountain sports depending on the season:
hiking, climbing, assault courses & rope-bridge walking, via ferrata, canyoning, orienteering, ice-skating, cabin building, camp- fire evenings, skiing & snowboarding, igloo building, sledging and ice hockey
Recreational activities for relaxation:
cycling along the lakeside, trampolines and table tennis, trips to a laser game, swimming pool, cinema, giant maze, water park and ten-pin bowling
Cultural and educational activities:
visiting the Olympic Museum, a Food Museum and historic castles and villages discovering Swiss culture through cheese production, chocolate manufacture and casting cow bells appreciating art (paintings, music including classical concerts)
discos and costume parties, theatre/dance/singing performances, large scale mountain picnics and outdoor games (role playing, treasure hunts), giant chess & card games, mountain evenings.
All in all, leisure activities provide the perfect backdrop for personal development and most importantly, integration.
