17 Dec Christmas in the Juniors
Christmas came particularly early to Le Rosey this year – but what a wonderful fête it was! Celebrations kicked off as always with the Juniors’ fête where the youngest Roséens raised money with the sale of home-made goodies before a short yet memorable concert and then the highlight of the evening, the bilingual play, James and the Giant Peach, based on Roald Dahl’s evergreen masterpiece. Switching faultlessly between English and French, the cast did a great job, and for parents less at ease in French than the students, Riko was an excellent narrator. The evening closed with a splendid dinner à la française in the heated marquee where scores of parents ate with their children and teachers. Part of the magic of an evening like this is the coming together of families from all over the world and the emotional reunions between parents and children.
