Le Châtelard

Switzerland

SPORTS

Students are introduced to aerobic exercises, and appreciate that these exercises have a wide range of benefits such as encouraging cardiovascular and muscular fitness and increasing flexibility, at the same time as increasing endurance.

They also practise team sports such as volleyball, basketball, soccer and badminton.

During the winter season, fun sports like sleighing, tobogganing, skiing and ice skating can be practised!

MUSIC

Students may take piano lessons and they all receive musical appreciation classes. Starting with music before Christ, and in the middle ages, they then focus on the four main periods of classical music. By listening to excerpts of the main compositors, they learn to appreciate and value the baroque, classical, romantic and post-romantic styles.

They also discover the basics of a piano, the major and minor musical scales, and musical vocabulary.

ART

Students are introduced to different modes of expression related to the Arts and Graphics, in such a way that they are able to use and understand the various techniques explored:

  • The colour spectrum
  • Composition: principal curves and straight lines
  • Plastic agents
  • Vegetal forms

  • Descriptive and expressive drawings
  • Light & shade
  • Principals of applied compositions: still life, landscape, and portrait
