Boarding week

It has been a very busy start to the year and I am happy that all the students are finally settled and have been able to make new friends as well as meet up with their friends returning from last year. The after school activities have been very popular and the noticeboard is full of choices and clubs that even the most energetic of students would find it difficult to keep up with! It is important to offer the widest range and an extensive list of choices in order to meet the needs of each individual student. The boys and girls football teams were very popular once again and their new uniforms will be ordered this week in preparation for the future matches. The new clubs such as basketball and robotics are also very popular and have generated a lot of interest within the other sections of the school. Even though the students have a very long day with classes, after school clubs, evening activities and reading time, they still seem to have a lot of energy left over at lights out, the opposite of the staff after a long day. The boarding houses are a hive of activity at the weekends when the students are not in class and of course we shouldn't forget the weekend expeditions when the students are camping in the mountains!

A wonderful start to a new school year and I hope that everyone continues to enjoy their time at La Garenne and all the activities on offer!

Week 3: Reception & Year 1 & 2

Reception & Year 1 & 2
 
We are feeling very proud of our youngest students. The Reception class have been very creative this morning, they did some fantastic finger painting and wrote their name, they explored with shapes and colours to construct houses, they reinforced their knowledge of numbers by ordering them on the interactive board and they enjoyed sharing books with their friends.
 
Year 1 & 2 had a super Literacy lesson describing their favourite toys. They then created a class story path for `Whatever Next` and they planned their own stories, changing the characters ad events.

Fire drill this week again. It is very important that our students understand what to do, where to go and how to react should need be.

Boarding weekend

Another busy weekend in the boarding school, the students are away for an overnight expedition, they were joined by Georgina the Head of Humanities who also enjoyed playing on the inflatable castle with them before leaving. As the sun sets, we can see that another beautiful weekend in the Swiss mountains is appreciated by all.

Weekly point system

Dear Parents and students, as we get to the end of another week, I would like to remind you about the school boarding system and the colour code. We have three colours, green, yellow and red. During the week, the students may earn or lose points within our system and at the end of the week the points are totalled up. All the students begin with 17 points.

To finish in a certain colour the students require between 17 and 20 to be in green, 10 and 16 to be in yellow and 0-9 to be in red. If in green they have had an exceptional week and will receive privileges, in yellow they may have lost a point here or there and a bigger effort is required the next week but if they have lost too many points they may be in red which means they will lose privileges and may be in detention at the end of the week. Students may gain or lose points for tidiness, behaviour, language and contribution to community life.

For additional information, please read the School Rules on our website: link
