Enrichment Activities

As part of the learning journey for all children we believe that it is vital to plan enrichment activities that keep school life exciting, vibrant and stimulating.
Each teacher plans activities for each topic per term. The activities planned are always linked to our curriculum and designed to further develop the learning that is taking place in school.
We use the trips and activities to aid and bring to life the learning that takes place in the classroom.
For the youngest children an example would be going on a hunt for “minibeasts” after learning about insects in Science lessons, or visiting the post office to see what happens to our letters, following up on writing lessons. Higher up the school we have had visits and cooking workshops with acclaimed local chefs, visits to zoos and the Olympic museum in Lausanne – all linked to topics in school. For Middle School students we have recently had overnight trip to the Swiss Science museum in Winterthur, and a great day out visiting the large hadron collider at CERN in Geneva.
On top of this, LVIS offers each student the possibility to expand their knowledge and interests through a comprehensive set  of artistic, cultural, athletic and technological activities after school or during the school day. Of course skiing is at the core of these activities as a  way of life, but activities also include tennis, climbing, golf, dance, karate, football, art, languages, drama and cooking to name a few.

Skiing

Naturally, skiing is an integral part of our programme during the winter season, with comprehensive skiing programmes offered for all levels. Whether preparing for a ski race competition or simply the enjoyment of one of the the best skiing areas in the world, we provide opportunities for all our pupils. Students ski twice a week as part of their school day from January to the end of March in what is the biggest and most beautiful ski areas in Switzerland. For the most advanced skiers,  we have our very own LVIS Racing Team with competitions throughout Switzerland, as well as our own LVIS Freeride Team.

 

LVIS Ski Club

We are also proud to announce the re-opening of the LVIS Ski Club on Saturday afternoons from January 13th to March 30th, open both to LVIS and non-LVIS students aged 4 and up. This is an exclusive club for skiers of all levels, with only five children per class to one ski teacher.  With only 50 spots available at 400 CHF per child, sign up is now open and based on a first come first serve basis.

 

To find out more or to sign up, please get in touch via email on info@lvis.ch or by phone on (+41) 27 565 26 56.

Art & Music
