On Wednesday night, the Concha boys took part in their first match of this year’s Basketball Tournament.
The ConchAttack Basketball team came up against a very strong, and very tall, Olympus team.
An absolutely stunning performance from all of ours boys meant we walked off the court worthy winners. Loris, Bernardo and Fady were all outstanding and all scored vital points for the team.
The game was another great example of sportsmanship and teamwork from all involved. The Olympus team played very well and we really appreciate the attitude and kindness they showed towards us throughout the entire match.
On to the next one………..
Well done everybody.
Today we went to Montreux and visit the wonderful Château de Chillon, one of the main symbols of Switzerland. Kids had a guided visit and they learnt a lot about this interesting and amazing place.
Today Loris played against Lancy. Unfortunately his team couldn’t get the victory but it was a really nice match. Loris played really well, especially in defence. Bravo Lolo!
Despite of bad weather … our kids have had a lot of fun this Saturday on their activities.
Thursday evening saw the first match of this year’s Boarding Football Tournament take place. Concha, as the reigning champions of the competition, went up against a very strong ‘new look’ Olympus side.
Concha started the game very well, working well as a team, marking tightly and closing Olympus down at every opportunity. With Concha piling on the pressure, the ball was forced out for a corner kick by the Olympus defence. A fabulous delivery from Loris found Mr Rob on the back post to head home the game’s first goal. With the spirits in the Concha team very high, another goal was imminent. Fantastic pressure from Loris forces a pass back to the Olympus goalkeeper, only for Fady to pounce and slot the ball into the back of the net. 2 – 0. Olympus turn it up a notch and manage to pull one back before half time – a powerful strike.
Half time: Concha 2 – 1 Olympus
The teams change ends and the heavens open. The rain came heavy and so did Olympus. The Concha boys continued to play well together and work very hard. As the game went on, the boys became tired and as Olympus introduced fresh legs and some fabulous shots, the game slipped away from Concha.
The boys can be very proud of themselves – Mr and James and Bernardo were solid in defense and Mr Jaime made some brilliant saves. Sasha, Owen, Liam and Yuto were on the sidelines cheering for the whole game – their support was crucial. We are so proud of the togetherness, work ethic, sportsmanship and teamwork the boys showed this evening. The competition is far from over and we now wait for the next game, vs Leman.
Final Score: Concha 2 – 4 Olympus
Man of the Match: Bernardo – some great challenges from him tonight and he never stopped running – well done Bernardo.

This afternoon, the Primary boys completed the first part of their Individual Projects for Pillar 1 of the Wellbeing Program.
Their task was to complete a 1 mile run and then discuss the benefits of this exercise. In the end, the boys ran 1.6 miles as a team.
The boys had a meeting after their exercise and said they felt it was a great achievement and although they felt like they would not be able to complete the task, they did it. It made them feel very proud of themselves for working as a team!
Today Owen participated in the Chess tournament organized by the Boarding. He played a really close match against Vitor from Olympus.
