Christmas Market-Christmas for Cambodia

December is always a busy time at St. Louis, but our annual Christmas Market is a time where teachers and students can relax, and come together to celebrate in merriment. This years St. Louis Christmas Market is set to be one of our biggest, and our new venue of Palazzo Archinto gives us the opportunity to host more stalls and games for all to enjoy.  This year we are also starting what will hopefully turn into a wonderful tradition: The Christmas for Cambodia Market.  Christmas for Cambodia is a part of our enlargement project of the Cambodia Council within our new charity, Schools Without Borders ONLUS.  Students and teachers alike have been organising events and fundraisers for several years to support our philanthropic endeavour, the St. Louis' Swy School, in Rantanakiri, Cambodia.  Our mission is that after ten years of development, Swy School will become the beacon of education we envisioned, and strong enough to be given over the the Cambodian Ministry of Education as a fully-fledged school.


The Christmas for Cambodia Market will see games, activities, food, and fun for all, with 100% of the proceeds going towards the Swy School.  Our goal is to raise over €10,000 by June so that we can start to make long term projects and goals with the school.  Our current goal is to have the funds necessary to fix, deepen, and enlarge the current water pump and hydration system at the school to ensure our students there have access to clean and safe water; a crucial element in the fight against water-borne infections such as cholera, and dysentery.

We look forward to having everybody come together this TUESDAY 17 DECEMBER from 13h00, to have fun, and to help those less fortunate.

St. Louis High School -  Palazzo Archinto's inauguration

The International cast delivered short speeches to the gathered authorities, journalists, Parental Board and special guests. In the evening, a wonderful party was held with over 200 parents and teachers gathering in the magical school grounds.

St. Louis School, as part of the Inspired Education Group, are always at the forefront of quality education and frequently take the lead in developing new initiatives, while at the same time upholding their fine traditions. The beautiful Palazzo Archinto, with a state-of-the-art library, IT labs, IB centre, six science laboratories, auditorium, drama room, over twenty classrooms and Art rooms, will be the place where St. Louis students build their capacities to fulfil their aspirations with the support of their specialist teachers. 

The inauguration marks another milestone in the development of St. Louis High School. It represents a great day of hope for the future, interwoven with good memories and values from their first 20 years. With the support of Inspired, St. Louis continues to develop our community of learners for tomorrow to face whatever lies ahead with confidence.

2019 Graduation Day

What a fantastic event again!

The 5th St Louis High School Graduation at Palazzina Appiani Milano was a magical and memorable night both for the students, as they progressed beyond their school years into adulthood, and for the family, friends and school community, who were privileged to share this time with them.

It was a wonderful opportunity to share memories of their time at St Louis, to reflect on how far they have come, and to wish them the very best in their future endeavours.

Weather Report Caviglia

Strong snowfall has occurred during the week. Snowflakes in large numbers have drifted from the children’s imagination and are now adorning the ground floor creating a winter wonderland.

Christmas lights and gifts have appeared under the Christmas tree in the form of an advent calendar. Each day a “gift word” will be lit.
These words have been donated by the children and want to celebrate our ideals as a community.

This has been made possible by the close collaboration of the Think Tank and the Art Committee.
A very warm thank you and let the celebrations begin.
