Today we had the honor, beyond the great pleasure to welcome one of our students to The Loras Network, not as a student but as an observer.
One of our students chose to visit our school, our business, our family as part of her opportunity to observe several professions. This opportunity is given to all students attending the Swiss public secondary schools at the age of 15. It is an opportunity to go behind the scenes in some professions or sectors of interest and get a better feeling of what is involved.
We had the honor not only to have been chosen by our student, but to do what we love doing; tell her why we love it! All the reasons that we love every single aspect of the Loras Network and its past and present. The maturity with which she was absorbing our chapters was also due to the maturity that we now have, emotional and professional, when telling that story.
We had the honor to show her our professional environment as experienced by us and how it affects our daily life, at work and at home.
We were even lucky to have had this visit on a Wednesday! Why? Well, Wednesday happens to be our special lunch date at our favourite restaurant in the building of our offices. We are proud and grateful that we can now have proper lunch breaks after 20 years of a really long but graceful (and sometimes not so graceful) journey. We were honored to share our lunch break with her. It was as if we were having a lunch break with every single student that has honored us by being our student!
What a great day!
