Our Voice for Rare Diseases is a fundraising and awareness-raising event, which brings together members of our school community in support of the research on rare diseases.

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have modified our fifth edition to ensure that all our participants can safely take part while still putting their creativity and artistic talents at the service of this important cause. Our Voice Digital 2021 will thus take audiences through virtual performances by a number of performing artists. These include:

  • A percussion concert featuring Year 3 students
  • A xylophone recital by Year 6 musicians
  • Dance performances by our Year 7 dancers, and
  • A violin concerto by an award-winning Secondary School violinist

Watch the video of their performances and help support research on rare diseases by making a donation. Proceeds raised will go to Orphanet, the portal for rare diseases in the Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève (HUG).

What is a rare disease?

A rare disease is defined as a condition that affects less than 1 in 2000 people and requires special combined efforts to manage it. There are over 7000 listed diseases. Rare disease research is crucial to provide patients with the answers and solutions they need, be they as concerns treatment, a possible cure or improved care. On 28 February - Rare Disease Day - we will join the thousands of people from all over the world who come together to advocate for more research on rare diseases.
