78. Ronan Royer (La Chât 1986)

Posted By Alumni Office, mardi, 2 décembre 2014
Ronan Royer1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
My whole school life! Rue Schaub for primary, LGB for grades 7 & 8 (French section) and La Châtaigneraie from grade 9 to 13.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
My (French) parents, having extensively travelled, settled in Geneva in 1967 (when I was born) and thought it a good idea. It most certainly was.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Gosh, where to begin? Miss Sutton in primary in Schaub, Mr. Welton for the best Computer Studies class ever and my subsequent love of everything tech, Mr. Welling for Geography and giving me a real understanding of weather, Mr. Cogswell for his patience at my obvious lack of ability for the maths of Physics (although I love the subject!), Mme. d’Amico in French for her help.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
The dances! Highlight of my time at La Chât, above the gym… And the Motel, of course, in later years.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
Must be the skiing, and the unforgettable ski days.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
In London since 1991, director of my own company designing and producing corporate events Europe-wide since 2002. Married with two children aged 17 and 11, both attending French school (so fully bilingual and bi-cultural too).

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Teaching the values of inclusion and tolerance. Ensuring students truly understand values beyond those monetary.  Fulfilment comes in many forms.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Know when to throw yourself in the path of opportunity.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Openness, awareness of others, an outlook unhindered by national boundaries or customs. A love of discovery.
