4. Susan Kostelecky Schulz (La Chât 1977)

(Sue Kostelecka)

Susan Kostelecky Schulz1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
From 1969 to 1974 at the Lycée des Nations: I arrived in 6th Grade at Bellevue (Mr Toubkin, Headmaster), then rue Schaub opened where I spent my 7th & 8th Grades (Mr Toubkin, Headmaster) and for my 9th & 10th Grades we moved to our new campus at La Chât (Mr Cussel, Headmaster).

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
My parents heard of the Lycée des Nations, the family sized International School in Bellevue, and adhered to Mr Toubkin’s principals and credo: “Service above Self”.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Mrs Danièle Roebuck, French teacher. I was lucky to have Mrs Roebuck as my French teacher for several years, including the year she entered us for ‘O’ Level French (in 9th Grade at la Chât). She always made the subject alive, fun, challenging, interesting and her never ending enthusiasm, kindness and patience made us always strive to do our best and to succeed.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
The swing in Bellevue where I loved to swing as high as possible, the front garden at Rue Schaub where I enjoyed chatting with my friends during our breaktimes and the ping-pong tables at La Chât; a great place to hangout!

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
Our family home in the village of Châtaigneriaz where I grew up; with the spectacular views of lac Léman, the Alps and the Jura.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I live in Paris with my husband and two sons, caring for my family and working part-time.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
To maintain the uniqueneness of a truly international education and to prepare all the children to become citizens of the world.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
To make the most of each year at school, to enjoy making friends - many of whom will be friends for life - to learn and respect different ways of thinking, to enjoy learning about multicultural backgrounds and hearing experiences from others, all the while enjoying the unique and wonderful setting of the Ecolint campuses in Switzerland.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Keeping a curious and open mind to all new ideas and subjects as well as living with the Lycée des Nations & Ecolint philosophy: the respect of all people; no matter what their nationality, colour, creed, religion or background.
