This very special school year has seen a new normal established here at Brillantmont. Unlike many students across the world, who are only learning online, all our students have returned to the classroom to learn together. Of course, we all wear masks at all times and we have a clear Protection Plan in place to minimise the risks, but the great thing is to have that person to person contact which we all need.
The US Election might be dominating headlines at the moment, but here at Brillantmont we have had our own exciting political battle! Our students belong to one of our five Houses: Rousseau, Einstein, Anker, Chaplin and Piccard. Each House has its own Student Leader, elected from the students and by the students! This year’s hustings featured some very well presented campaigns from the candidates, and we look forward to seeing what the elected Student Leaders will bring to their new roles, promoting team-building, collaboration and a sense of belonging.
The students have connected with mentors from the business world, and will enjoy a virtual guest speaker event by UBS executive Mr. Kader Remil later this month. In January 2021, YES Club will enter the Business School of Lausanne’s Entrepreneurship competition with a presentation on their business start-up project.
It is wonderful that in this very particular school year, we have so much going on at Brillantmont, and every student has an opportunity to pursue their own interests and expand their skills in areas that will lead them to university, and into the world of work. From technology to economics, students are very busy as the school gets used to a new way of interacting with each other, while ensuring the school spirit remains.
