FOUNDATION (ALL CAMPUSES)

The Ecolint Universal Learner Passport Scholarships
CHF 120,000 per student over a 3 year period / ref : EULPS / Ongoing

In Ecolint’s earliest years, thanks to the generosity of the Forstall family, the first scholarship was offered to 15 students to allow them to study at Ecolint. These original scholarship students obviously benefited from the novel and visionary educational experience Ecolint had to offer, but they also enriched the school immeasurably, with positive repercussions that are still felt to this day.

Today, we aim to relaunch a scholarship programme for students who have experienced hardship and come from backgrounds not represented at Ecolint today, who show exceptional promise and potential, who have demonstrated qualities that would enrich the school and who would be unable to attend without a full scholarship.

The Ecolint Universal Learner Passport Scholarships will give students the international outlook and qualifications to enable them to continue studying and live as international citizens wherever they choose to settle. Contact us

Guest Speakers Series

Based in a safe, peaceful and prosperous environment, Ecolint is determined that its students never lose sight of the radically different realities that so many others in the world experience on a daily basis. As a result, we feel it is important to expose them to first hand testimony from people with personal stories that challenge their world view. The Guest Speakers Series is the ideal means for this, and talks have so far covered topics as diverse and wide ranging as environmental issues, race relations, human and civil rights, conflict and reconciliation, science, homelessness and even philosophy and history.

    LA GRANDE BOISSIÈRE CAMPUS

    Chemistry laboratories – Le Salève building
    CHF 1,300,00 / Ref: chems labs / Summer 2018

    Built in 1978, our science labs are outdated and were designed for education methods that are now of the past.

    «Art on Campus» is a project jointly developed by art teachers. It aims to give more space to show art production from students for both Middle and Secondary students. It will consist of large structural frames installed on the facade of the schools where the community can actually see the student’s production. The frames allow pictures to be changed whenever necessary. There is no specific maintenance costs other than printing the pictures to be displayed once a year. Contact us

    Campus - Main football pitch replacement
    CHF 420,000 / Ref: LGB Pitch Replacement / Summer 2018

    The existing 45m x 80m football pitch was built more than 10 years ago. It is now deteriorated and not appropriate anymore to the outdoor sports needs. It does not correspond either to the requested sports infrastructure standards for an international school and does currently present some serious safety concerns for the practice of certain sports activities. It will be replaced by a solid synthetic coating purposely designed for intensive and multiple use, in particular in school environment. The new coating will also be FIFA certified. Contact us

    The aim of this project is to provide an ESP structure to the Secondary school, the only one missing within our 3 campuses. In 2018, this new facility will welcome our first ESP Primary graduates. It will be located near the current secondary learning centre inside the ALPS building. In order to create it, we need to reallocate our current spaces. We will convert the existing offices and entrance lobby into one large classroom, convert small classrooms into larger ones and add new accessible WC and a kitchenette. Contact us

    A Fab Lab is a place for learning and innovation. It means equipping a room with tools and computer programmes in order to create all kinds of objects through digital processes. All Fab Labs share common tools and processes, and students will be connected to a global community of learners, educators, technologists, researchers, makers and innovators. We will need the following equipment: 3D printer, computer-controlled milling or turning machines, microprocessor and digital electronics design, assembly, and test stations, laser, plasma and water jet cutter. Contact us

    Primary school – Tree planting
    CHF 15,000 / Ref: Tree Planting / Spring 2018

    The aim of this project is to plant native trees around the Primary school that will provide natural shade, serve as a natural barrier against UV’s and contributes to the beauty of the campus. In a first phase, 5 plane trees of more than 3 meters high will be planted in the playground areas on the lake side of the building. Contact us

    Cafeteria – Recycling centre 
    CHF 3,500 / Ref Recycling Centre / Spring 2018

    Our school wants to fight against food waste by implementing sort waste solutions and raising student awareness about recycling.

    CAMPUS DES NATIONS

    Extended Support Programme, Post 16 Unit – Saconnex building
    CHF 60,000 – CHF 70,000 / Ref: ESP Post 16 / Summer 2018

    Our Extended Support Programme structure provides highly personalised learning pathways for the students. In the post 16 unit, we are teaching life skills and preparing students to become autonomous when leaving school. Part of this involves creating an environment that is more adapted for young adults and a flexible learning environment for both collaborative and individualised work. Contact us

    This refurbishment would include :

    • New furniture more suitable for adult size
    • Moveable collaborative work zones
    • Spaces and furniture’s flexibility are important to adapt the facility to the numbers of students and to their needs.

    Saconnex building – Additional meeting pods 
    CHF 3,000 – CHF 30,000 / Ref: Meeting Pods / Summer 2018

    Quiet meeting and teaching spaces are important for both staff and students. All existing meeting rooms are currently overbooked and we are lacking spaces in different areas of the school. The 2 pods placed on the 2nd floor have proven to be widely used everyday and, taking into account a high demand, we are planning to implement more of those in locations such as classrooms, corridors and empty spaces. These meeting furniture cost will depend on equipment available upon options. Contact us
