3rd Term 2014 (April - June)
 
Les élèves des classes 7,8 et 9 se sont rendus vendredi 4 Avril à Gland pour un atelier jardinage. Ils ont pu découvrir les fleurs de saison comme les pensées, myosotis, etc... Chacun a pu planter 3 fleurs de son choix et revenir avec une belle composition à la section. Ils ont aussi pu découvrir de nombreuses espèces de plantes et de fruits à travers un quizz. C'est avec un grand plaisir que le nouveau thème IPC a commencé. Let's plant !
 
Do you know the answers to these questions?

· The Halifax Resolves authorised representatives to approve this document, which was signed by the non-fictional New Hampshirite Josiah Bartlett. This document declares its addressee “unfit to be the ruler of a free People”. A text written by George Mason inspired the opening of this document, which states that all men are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” Name this 1776 document written by Thomas Jefferson.”

· Different versions of this device have been designed by Robert Fluid and Santorio Santorio, while early versions doubled as barometers. A scale for these objects that occasionally employ mercury was developed in 1724 by Daniel Fahrenheit. Name these medical devices that are used to determine temperature.


These are just two of the dozens of demanding questions teams had to answer at the Swiss National Championship
hosted by Le Rosey for the third year running. The competition was very stiff and our teams had to fight hard to make it through the latter rounds.

Nonetheless, the Varsity team did well enough to make it through to the European finals in Rome next May. So, we look forward to bettering our title as Vice-Champions of Europe!
 
Avril - Class 6: Musical Expedition to the caves of Vallorbe

Going on expedition with a cello, a double bass and 23 other instruments with Class 6 was a little out of the ordinary - and then taking them underground into the caves of Vallorbe to compose and perform a piece of music was utterly bizarre, but at the same time magical. Using the acoustics created by the large cavern, students were able to explore the use of sound to fill the space creating echoes and resonance. All students were then involved in helping to compose a piece of music on top of a bass riff by Miles Davis. Class 6 worked incredibly well in carefully designed workshop groups to create vocals, percussion and melodies. In a short period of time they created a fantastic piece of music including solos, improvisation, and harmonizing. This piece was then performed to an audience in the cave. A superb achievement.

Hundreds of parents and Roséens, past and present, joined together to enjoy our celebrated February "Long Weekend". Working meetings, ski races, gala dinners, alumni meetings, tournaments and some very lively evenings — nothing was missing. What sets Le Rosey apart is never more evident than at this special time when a great community comes together for a few days — or even a few hours —from all over the world, drawn to the warmth of these Gstaad reunions to celebrate friendships that reach across frontiers, languages and race.

February - Ski tour excursion - Les Arpilles

An exceptional day in the mountains with exceptional students ski touring up Les Arpilles. Leaving the minibus at l’Etivaz we put our skins on our skis and ascended 1000m to the summit of a beautiful mountain. The fresh snow overnight had added to the fresh snow underneath and with perfect weather for an outstanding ski down. The fitness and technique of the students has improved considerably over the season, they set a great pace going upwards and showed the staff how to ski on the down. A total pleasure to be in the mountains with them!
 
February - Class 4, Igloo Expdedition

Class 4 went on expedition to Gsteig travelling on an air-boards before sleeping in an Igloo overnight. Air boards are big inflatable body boards with rails on the bottom to give a small amount of control while descending at high speeds. Taking the Wispile lift we traversed the ridge line and then descended down to the valley covering around 14km having a great time along the way. Students then had to prepare for the night learning about how to keep themselves warm while sleeping in a snow hole. All students made it through the night a little chilled by the morning but positive and enthusiastic about the experience which I am sure they will not forget.

January - IPC Entry Point, Classes 7-8-9

Vendredi 17 Janvier, les élèves des classes 7 , 8 et 9 sont tous partis à l'Aventure.
Ils ont d'abord préparé eux-mêmes leurs pique-niques. Puis, raquettes au pied, ils ont effectué une marche de plus de deux heures. Après avoir relevé plusieurs défis, les 4 équipes d'explorateurs ont atteint avec succès le sommet de l'Eggli. Un grand bravo à nos aventuriers qui ont su déveloper des compétences telles que l'entraide, la force physique mais aussi mentale.
 
January - Class 5, Lauenen

Class 5 travelled to Lauenen to discover a beautiful place close to Gstaad and to learn about the ‘dangers of the mountains’. Students travelled on snow shoes over to Gsteig while practicing using transceivers, probes and shovels so they know what to do if they ever came across an avalanched group. The class showed a good spirit and co-operated well to help each other over the hill.

More than 1,200 Roséens, teachers, family and friends celebrated Le Rosey's 134th Christmas on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th December. It was a delightful and heartwarming fête under cold if sunny winter skies. More than half of the student body participated in the celebrations as actors on stage, as performers in the concerts or in running our fundraising stalls. These were Christmas celebrations marked by the warmth, friendship and the sense of community which is so much a part Le Rosey.

Ils ont pu voir des squelettes de dinosaures, mammouths, etc... des fossiles d'ammonites, palmiers, ... Ils ont pu aussi partir à la recherche de 12 fossiles enfouis dans le sable et ont pu les dessiner et les regrouper par famille.
 
November - TEDx: Great Expectations

Le Rosey's first TEDx was a great success.
Organized with care and creativity by a dozen Roséens, Saturday 9th November will stay in our memories as a wonderful day of thoughts and feelings shared with some remarkable speakers who honoured us with their presence. The strict rules that govern TEDx, notably that of limiting the number of spectators to 100, were not easy to respect, but Caroline, the President of the Organizing Committee, was able to bring her team together and set a tremendous standard for the future. In a few days' time, a Youtube link will make it possible to see or see again the best of our TEDx, which looks set to become a a great annual Rosey tradition. Bravo to the speakers, many from far away, to the organizers who worked so hard for over eight months and to all who helped and attended.
 
November 9th, 2013  

Organized by our very own Rosey students,
TEDx Institute Le Rosey will be a day filled with inspiration and ideas with talks from speakers such as Norman Foster, Kenneth Starr, and Luca Belpietro.

We invite all members of the Le Rosey community to buy a ticket and attend the event to see what ideas our students believe are worth sharing...

IPC: Migration

 
October - Juniors : IPC

As part of our IPC Migration topic this term, we began with an "EVACUATION" of all class 6 and 7 students.
We had ten minutes to pack our bags and escape up to the Jura! We tried to understand what refugees experience when they have to flee their homes. Up on the Jura, we learned six new skills; How to light a fire, how to use a water filter, how to treat an injury, how to build a shelter, how to boil water and make tea and which equipment we really need to survive. It was exciting and exhilarating, we learned a lot and we LOVED IT!
 
October - The "Grand" Raid, Class 2

Students in Class 2 all participated in an expedition to 'cross the Alps'. By hiking from the Col Du Marchairuz to the Col Du Mollendruz students covered around 15km each with a cumulative distance of around 1000km the equivalent of crossing the Alps. Focusing on leadership and teamwork skills students were independent and self-led having to navigate from different starting positions to the end point. The weather was unfavourable with strong winds, a covering of snow and cold, but students showed a good attitude and spirit and were very positive about the experience.
 
October - Kandersteg, Class 5

Class 5 went on their long expedition to Kandersteg and got to try many outdoor activities including: mountain biking, archery, orienteering, canyoning, hiking, team games, summer luge etc. The expedition culminated with a night in the mountains underneath the famous Eiger north face and an ascent on train up to the Jungfraujoch. It was a great experience for the students who had a great attitude and enjoyed the expedition immensely.
 
Septembre - IA Training

Class 4,3,2, went on expedition in the Jura find out about the International Award, and to learn some basic expedition skills.
Starting on campus the students planned their route and food for the weekend. They took the train to Le Pont navigated their way to the tipi village above the Lac du Joux. They prepared their food and learnt how to make fires and navigate at night using a compass. The following day they hiked to the summit of the Dent du Vaulion and down to Vallorbe sticking to their timings. Students showed good character and leadership skills throughout.
 
Septembre - Défis Via Ferrata et trekking au Moléson

Dans l'esprit de chacun, premier jour d'automne rime avec temps gris, mais ce dimanche fut merveilleusement ensoleillé pour 16 Roséens déterminés à atteindre leur objectif, le sommet du Moléson. Que cette ascension se fasse par petits sentiers ou par via ferrata, chacun a combiné forces physique et mentale pour gravir cette montagne dominant la région, car une fois parvenus à son pied, nous sommes tout d'abord interpellés puis intimidés l'espace d'un instant par son aspect imposant. Un challenge gravé à tout jamais dans les mémoires de certains, une simple étape de plus pour d'autres, l'occasion d'être un leader ou la main dans le dos, mais avant tout un bon moment partagé puis gratifié par un bon repas fort apprécié au sommet. Une fois de plus, félicitations à tous nos participants et merci aux guides !
 
Septembre - Tour du Mont Blanc

Seven students in class t completed the first half of the famous Tour du Mont Blanc. They covered large distances each day, 56km in total, 3000m of ascent and did a four-day tour in just three days. They showed great spirit and determination and were a pleasure to take into the mountains. They completed half of the tour and will return in two weekends' time to complete the other half to qualify for their Gold International Award.
