| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Brillantmont has been involved with the Model United Nations for over 30 years. Despite not being able to attend our usual Singapore conference, due to COVID restrictions, we were able to take our students to a conference hosted by a local international school. It brought together around 120 delegates from eight other Swiss International schools. Our students had the opportunity to join the debates, present policies, work with others to develop solutions, and build their confidence in public speaking and critical thinking.

Celebrating the works of William Shakespeare during our 13th Annual Reading Week

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Last week was our 13th Reading Week at Brillantmont International School. This has become an annual tradition at our Swiss boarding school and the focus this year was on the works of William Shakespeare. 

Our special guest was Tom Davey from Bright Torches who unfortunately couldn't be here in person, but conducted several successful workshops via Zoom. Tom is an actor and has worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company and at the Globe Theatre in London and this was his second time at Brillantmont. His opening history of the Globe Theatre in London had us all gripped and transported back into the intoxicating and subversive world of Elizabethan England.

Our very own Ironman here at Brillantmont!

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Keeping fit and active is important not just for our physical health, but also our mental well-being. Sports are a compulsory part of all students’ programmes but they also have the chance to join our numerous school teams – volleyball, basketball, football, swimming and many more. Our dedicated sports teachers motivate even the most reluctant student and serve as fantastic role-models.

In this post, we talk in depth with our Sports Coordinator, Mr Tim Rouge, whose achievements are an inspiration to us all. He was recently in Cascais in Portugal, but there was no relaxing on the beach for him as he was there to participate in an Ironman competition.

BM: What is an Ironman?
TR: It’s a long-distance triathlon in which you swim 4km, cycle 180km and finish with a marathon of 42km.
