Student Life, Promotion Day and Masterclasses

Leave a comment

Mid-terms have finished and the second part of the school has begun. I did well in most classes and got the majority of A’s, 2 B’s and a C, which was bad because that was the class I felt most confident in, but now realized I needed to study more for it.

It usually works out that way in school, the most challenging are the most rewarding and better grades and I don’t think I did well and the things I think I did super well in, I didn’t. Either way, it was a good wake-up call because I know I can do even better in that class.

Classes went well this week and student life is great. I love being here and it feels like school is becoming like a big family day by day. Nevertheless, the stress is starting to get to me a little bit due to the class load and how many projects are coming up. Nevertheless, it’s a healthy challenge to learn proper time management and organize myself properly and do well.

The usual daily life went well we had our banquet promotion which we did with our group to get people to register and practice for promotion day (a day when we promote tickets for our banquets, and the winners get to go).

Afterwards, we held our the promotion day today, getting the last registrants in with our amazing class. We had a lot of fun and got the students involved in doing the limbo in the middle of our cafeteria which we attempted to transform into a jungle for our Africa Banquet. It was hilarious and cool.

Next up, this evening was Chinese night which was very fun and delicious with sweet and sour pork, rice and many other yummy foods from China. It was really yummy and our students decorated Gate 85 (our cafeteria) to be Chinese.

Afterwards, we had our red wine masterclass where we had a professional teach us about amazing red wines from the Bordeaux region of France and we tried many wines and learned about their history. We had a lot of fun tasting wines and winding down a little bit after the stress of the week.

Last but not least, to complete our Friday evening, I went with a walk with my friends by the lakeside as the beautiful sunset set over the blue waters of Lake Geneva, behind the majestic Swiss Alps.Now, I’m off to watch some movies with a friend and enjoy my Friday night and look forward to sleeping like a baby with the rainy weather outside.
