Alpine Student Life 2017

Alpine Student Life + VYLC 2014



A Typical Day at the Alpine School
Our day starts bright and early at 6:30am. We all rather hop in the shower, make our bed or go for a jog outside. By 7:00 the place is buzzing as everyone makes their way to breakfast in the common room.  We all dig into our cereal and toast and talk about the day ahead of us. 

After the student leaders make their announcements everyone goes back into their wings. Before the morning class we spend our time emailing and getting ready for the day’s activities. Some might be going on a day hike while others are getting their laptops and heading off to a passport session.

The day goes pretty quickly as we move to our afternoon class after having a nice big lunch. This goes on until 3:30pm. Then we all have free time till 5:15, which is our DEAR class. We spend this free time with our mates or doing last week’s laundry or on the computer.

At DEAR we all have half an hour of time where we just sit and reflect about our day, in silence.  Everyone uses this time wisely and it gives us a chance to get to know where we are at.

At 6:00pm we have dinner. Which is everyone’s favourite meal . Then it’s followed by the night class. This goes from 7:30 to 8:30. We all learn about different things but it brings us together as a community.

At 9:00 we all set off to brush our teeth and get into bed. All tired but excited to do it all again the next day.
