International Day – Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz

 

International Day 2018

We’ve recently celebrated our international school community. Over 35 nationalities are living at the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz. On the International Day each nationality presented culinary delights from its home country.

Recital Evening 2018
From Goethe to poems written by our Matura and international students. As every year the traditional Recital Evening proves once again that an evening of poetry is by no means a stuffy affair! Performances in Romansh, Swedish, Spanish, Russian, French, German, English and Italian represented our international school community. What a lovely evening full of great poems, music and emotions!

Windy City Queen by Anabel, grade 10
I deeply, thoroughly envy

Liquorice gumdrop eyes looking at me

Razor sharp eyeliner on those eyes

Cheekbones as high as butterflies

I’m thoroughly jealous, so I become mean

Even though she’s on the edge

The Windy City Queen

And she said

Why would you want to be like me

See all the things I’d wish unseen

God died a long time ago in my mind

I’ve got nothing to lose so I stay kind

And I

Set on fire all her advice

So I tried to fake it, fake being nice

Only, something went wrong, you see

Trying to be nice brings out the wrath in me

And I

Admire how she smiles through all

How I never see her fall

As she’s trying to make small talk with me

Trying to see past all the jealousy

But all of this is just a play

Fake smiles to fake friends as if on a stage

All of her real friends just panic and…

“Are you okay?”

But I don’t know what else to see

Other than a Windy City Queen and my envy
