/ LCI EDUCATION FOUNDATION

/ ABOUT LCI EDUCATION NETWORK

The foundation is a social participation program through which all students can offer their time, talent and effort to help improve and change the world. The foundation’s primary mission is to promote student retention. Also, it is committed to giving back to developing countries, specifically where the LCI Education network is present, by focusing on children’s literacy.

Present today on 5 continents, the LCI Education network consists of 22 select higher education institutions, and some 2,000 employees offering instruction to over 12,000 students throughout the world each year. From one country to the next, LCI Education favors the harmonization of its programs, which makes for greater flexibility, better control over the quality of its services, and deeper respect towards the various cultures it works with.

/ FIRST MAJOR DONATION FROM THE LCI EDUCATION FOUNDATION The LCI Education Foundation is joining the Institución Educativa Fundación Pies Descalzos El Bosque project. This initiative is supported by the Colombian Ministry of Education and directed by the Pies Descalzos Foundation in partnership with the Obra Social La Caixa and the FC Barcelona Foundation. This partnership represents a total investment of 4.5 million USD for the construction of a public primary school in a disadvantaged area of Barranquilla.

This is the first major project with participation from the LCI Education Foundation. “We want to actively participate in communities where our network exists, not only in Canada but everywhere we have campuses. This year we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of LCI Bogotá, a member of LCI Education. Therefore, it was only natural to invest in this inspiring project, together with major philanthropic partners,” said Claude Marchand, CEO of the LCI Education network. Thus, the funds will come from various sources such as fundraising from student projects throughout the LCI Education network, corporate donations, contributions from members of the network, student dues and other voluntary donations.

ENERGY BREAK is one of the best benefits that the students of LaSalle College can have for free, it is organized by Cindy Louise Cook and Marc Beauchamp, two physical education teachers with passion for their jobs, both of them are voluntarily using their free time between classes to provide it.

Some students may think that this isn’t much attractive to them since they already have a gym outside of the college where they do their own workout, but take note that all the exercises proposed in class are not mandatory, which means that if you want to do your own exercise instead, you can! Students are permitted to borrow the equipment on class and do their workout as they please, So if you want to do just a light stretching, a warm up or maybe have a more active routine, try saving some time on your week so you can checkout the Energy Break class, you’ll certainly enjoy the experience! web extra!

LaSalle College Prizes

LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR’S YOUTH MEDAL When I was in the army, at 19, I used to think that being nice was the lousiest thing a person could be recognised for, to be remembered for. Now, I think the greatest virtues are a potent mix of compassion, forgiveness, and courage. With some French translation, being nice is often phrased as being kind.

Everyone asks me what it feels like to win this award. My answer is always the same: I don’t know yet; right now I just feel overwhelmed. I still don’t know what it feels like, but I have learnt something in absolute: being brave is special, but, being brave, in order to be kind to someone else, is the same for everyone. Sebastian Ramos-Currah warded the Lieutenant Governor’s Youth Medal 2018

During the Lieutenant Governor’s speech, he mentioned that we, the recipients, were kind, caring, and selfless. And while I sat there, in the front, I thought to myself, you cannot be kind, caring, or selfless, if you haven’t been on the receiving end of these virtues yourself.

The next day, I went around the school to thank the people that we thanked for the First Custodial Appreciation Day in LaSalle College, once more. I told them that I am being recognised for being kind towards others. But, I’ve realised that I could not be kind if it wasn’t for them, for they have been, and are, kind towards me. There are no words to describe how one feels touched when shown kindness. Kindness is a mist, an immovable mist. It embraces you. Sometimes hastily, sometimes without notice.

Kindness will embrace you. Let it. Let kindness embrace you and always know that it’s okay to be kind to others, because everyone deserves it, including yourself, you deserve someone being kind towards you too. Be kind, because it’s always been within you, and always will be.

Left to Right: Anna Miolo (Team Leader - General Education); Pamela Currah (Sebastian's Mother); Donald Provençal (Team Leader - International School of Business); Lyne Tremblay (Director of Student Affairs); Sebastian Ramos-Currah (Recipient); Pascale Warmoes (Special Care Counselling Teacher); Christina Mandilaras (Special Care Counselling Teacher); Eduardo Ramos-Gomez (Sebastian's Father).

ENTREVUE Avec JEAN KRISTEN-LAVIGNE Le DIRECTEUR DU DEPARTEMENT HOTELLERIE (Fushia) DU COLLEGE LASALLE / DESCRIPTION DU PARCOURS Présentation bonjour très poli Monsieur Jean kristen Lavigne directeur du restaurant le (Fushia), et agi en tant que maitre d’hôtel durant les services de temps à autres, et travaille aussi avec les étudiants comme professionnelle durant les services ou il n’y’a pas de professeurs. Nous pouvons noter qu’il a fait beaucoup du 5 Etoiles ce qui n’est quand même pas rien. Il était en charge en carte des vins sur saint -Laurent. Il a été directeur d’un 5 étoiles dans un restaurant Japonais très cote de la place pour ne cite que ça. Avant d’être directeur de l’école il avait sa propre compagnie de standardisation, IL créait les cartes de cocktails. Aujourd’hui il est un merveilleux, et heureux père de famille de trois magnifiques enfants. Il concilie toujours Travail, Passion, et Famille qui sont aussi ces 3 points d’ordres. Le tout lui permet de transmettre sa passion aux jeunes.

/ POURQUOI L’HÔTELLERIE En restaurant comme les autres métiers il faut se donner à fond et toujours donner le meilleur de soi, et savoir bien s’organiser, pour lui on ne finit jamais d’apprendre, tout est toujours nouveau.

/ L’EXCITATION VIENT DE L’ADRÉNALINE -L’adrénaline pourquoi ; par exemple comme il mentionne dans son exemple (si 200 délégués du département viennent pour déjeuner au restaurant rien ne doit être laisser au hasard tout doit être bien présenter toujours avec la sensation d’être heureux, tout doit être bien coordonner, qu’on est en amour de notre métier. Il se considère comme un papa de 110 étudiants qu’il aime tous autant qu’ils sont et peu importe d’où ils viennent cela n’a aucune importance. L’important c’est de leur transmettre le savoir.

Ce qui fait de la bonne restauration c la capacité de savoir une bonne distance, et avoir un bon tact. Conseils à donner pour ceux qui veulent faire dans l’hôtellerie Avoir du talent cela ne suffit pas toujours dans le domaine de la restauration. Mais Néanmoins le talent c’est une base presque essentielle.

/ CONSEILS VALEURS CULINAIRES La base de tout c’est d’avoir l’engouement, la passion, c ‘est de la discipline, le gout de vouloir dépasser ces limites vont jours faire la différence. La Cuisine c‘est un constant et perpétuelle apprentissage. Il y’a toujours de nouveau produits qui vont sortir Pour l’équipe de salle c’est avoir un côté social, (l’empathie).
