It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-20 school year, a year in which SEK-Les Alpes will ontinue in its efforts to offer each of its members, students and staff, the possibility of attaining the highest academic, human and personal development.
In this new academic year we are offering a programme where the natural and social surroundings continue to play a crucial role in our students’ learning. We also continue to strive towards becoming a HEALTHY SCHOOL where the physical, psychological and social well-being of each member of our learning community is the core of all our activity. Furthermore, and in line with this ambition, we have become an International Ski School under the umbrella of the International Sports Academy programme to offer elite student athletes an academic programme of excellence.
As part of SEK Group, we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of our learning model, the Intelligent Classroom, and the 50th anniversary of our Ethos. Both of these things enable all our schools and year groups to continue at the Forefront of education while placing students at the core of the whole process.
We are keenly aware of what families expect and value in their children’s education and what should be the hallmarks that make all of us who participate in the SEK Community unique. Therefore, we have a responsibility as a school to remain true to our spirit in order to encourage our students to continue to strive to meet the professional demands of the 21st century. I would like to assure families that each of us is personally committed to this learning experience, in which we urge students to make the most of the opportunities afforded them in order to ensure they live a unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience at school. Because they are the ones who are required to tackle this new challenge as individuals.
We are ready to embrace this new exciting stage with optimism and enthusiasm. Therefore, our objective is to ensure that our students are able to continue to learn over the course of their lives, wherever they are and whatever their circumstances, and that they are prepared to design and realise their life project. I would like to thank you on behalf of the SEK-Les Alpes team for the trust you have placed in us.
