Great Ski Week and Winter Course experience for Brillantmont students

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Skiing is a big part of Brillantmont life. Our amazing location means we can be in the ski resorts very quickly, enabling our students to hit the slopes every weekend.

Despite the pandemic, we've been really lucky as the government allowed ski resorts in Switzerland to stay open as long as they strictly applied measures to protect public health. This has been literally a breath of fresh air for our students. Being able to get out into nature, having fun with friends and breathing the clean, fresh mountain air has given them the invigorating break that they need. They've been able to disconnect from the learning environment and try something different.

Developing critical thinking skills in the French classroom

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

We all love pictures and when those pictures tell a story, what is there to not love? From  Disney comic strips,  to the philosphical ponderings of Snoopy in the Peanuts cartoon, to the questions posed in newspaper strips - they all get us thinking about the message behind the picture.

Brillantmont & Model United Nations (MUN) club - our commitment.

| 0 comments| by Mr Mc Clean Mr Mc Clean

"When I arrived at Brillantmont, the school already had a long-standing commitment to International Model United Nations (THIMUN) conferences. For the past 16 years, I've had the great pleasure of being involved and taking students to the annual conference in Singapore and in The Hague.

Each year I look forward to seeing the students' reactions and not just to the conference situation and the skills and attributes it develops. In Singapore, it's great to see how they react to the climate, food, history and culture whilst The Hague trip brings its own special memories, with the cold gales from the North Sea and grey winter skies not diminishing the beauty of the city of peace which is home to the Dutch Royal family, Peace Palace and numerous International Organisations from Interpol to the International Court of Justice. 

However, as the pandemic has prevented these trips from happening I was at a loss of how I would attract students to join the Model United Nations (MUN) club.

Brillantmont says yes to YES!

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

 One of our core values at Brillantmont is to nurture collaboration and leadership skills through challenge. A great way to do this is through YES - The Young Enterprise Switzerland Club (YES Club). This after school club at Brillantmont is dedicated to bridging the gap between theory and practice in relation to investing and entrepreneurship. Our intrepid group of scholars meet every Wednesday in a classroom overlooking beautiful Lac Leman (Lake Geneva). Our team competes in two separate stock market game challenges and learn the fundamentals of investing, starting up and operating their own business. The YES Club’s talented members reflect our cultural diversity and includes students from Switzerland, Mexico, Spain, India, Luxembourg and Iran and are led by Mr Joe Brogan, our Economics /History teacher.
