I know that this is a difficult time, but I wanted to write to you all after what has happened to our Patient Professor. I hope that this reaches out to you in the best way it possibly can.

In the midst of our complicated, confusing teenage years, we tend to be too wrap...

“Dear Prodigious, Pertinent, Plethora-of-Requirements-Burdened Pupils”, this is how it would always start, the timely, organised, clear, succinct, step-by-step instructions of the work we were to complete before next class, that many of us blew off because Mr Fiehler w...

Luc Groshens, 1ère S3:

It was an honour to know Mr Fiehler, and a privilege to have him as a teacher. I had the chance to talk to him personally and to some extent intimately. He shared a piece of life with me, from his life in Korea, to his favorite hockey team: the Pi...

The Demons, they will come a ‘roving,

Soft at first, hard to see

They creep in slowly, like the timid knock on the

Tinted Glass

Or the humid breath, hovering onto the fibers of a mask

They’re here.

They’ve arrived.

Some aren’t welcome to stay, some don’t want to intrude

You may see some cry, shriveled like dry prunes

Under the harsh, blinding light.

You may see some keep them in, not seeing the damage inside

Jeunesse dorée, désillusionnée, irrespectueuse… Comment en sommes-nous arrivés là ?

Nous qui pour la plupart ne voyons malheureusement pas plus loin que le bout de notre nombril. Nous ne sommes, en somme, que des enfants gâtés qui, ne sachant pas de quoi se plaindre tro...

Un beau retournement de situation dans un contexte de Deuxième Guerre Mondiale ! 

Soleil illuminé

Ô infime liqueur de ma rancoeur

Ne me cause pas tant de malheur

Je ne pourrai supporter tant d’amertumes

Auxquelles mon coeur ne s’accoutume

En pleine plongée dans mes pêchés

Que je n’ai su surmonter

Et qui sonne l’heure...

Young Aadira,

I'm sorry I didn't warn you that you wouldn't stay in your childhood home for the rest of your life. I'm sorry I didn't prepare you for the changes you would experience by moving, not once, but twice during your high school years. I'm sorry you had to go t...

Diam’s, rappeuse française d’il y a une dizaine d’années pour ceux qui auront l’audace de demander, a créé beaucoup de chansons qui m’ont touché, elle est d’ailleurs assez haut placée dans la liste de mes artistes préférés. Il va donc sans dire qu’un point commun entre...

« Ah, c’est bien, tu fais tes devoirs, ça c’est utile ! »

« Tu penses que c’est utile de faire du dessin ? »

« Tu fais du latin, c’est inutile. »

        Tout est dit, on n’accepte pas de faire des choses inutiles, tout doit forcément être utile. Utile, c’e...
