That’s all Folks 🏡🦅💛

This has been all. Our beloved students of Franconis have successfully graduated and have now left our cosy house to embark on holidays and step into their adult lives. Although they have moved on, we will never forget the incredible year we shared together in our little house on top of the hill in the small town of Versoix.

Good luck to Meylis, Martín, Víctor, Navid, Al, and Jeff. We are confident that the future will bring you many new and memorable experiences. Your time here has been filled with growth, joy, and unforgettable moments, and we are so proud of all you have achieved.

We will always be flying high with golden heart. 🦅💛

Farewell to Our Beloved Franconis Lads: Graduation Weekends 🌟

This weekend, our beloved Franconis lads celebrated their last days at Collège du Léman, taking part in the much-anticipated Graduation Weekends. This series of events was the well-deserved culmination of a long and amazing year filled with success, experiences, and unforgettable moments.

Thursday: Leavers Assembly & Cocktail

We kicked off the celebrations on Thursday with the Leavers Assembly, where every Grade 12 student received a proper farewell from the boarding community. It was incredible to witness how these students have persevered and thrived, overcoming obstacles and difficulties along the way. Following the Assembly, we enjoyed our annual Leavers Cocktail. This more informal and recreational event allowed the boys to mingle with the rest of the graduating students, teachers, and boarding staff. We also had the opportunity to say a heartfelt “Goodbye” to our Deputy Boarding Principal, who is retiring after 24 years at Collège du Léman, 17 of them in boarding. A lot of former students and former boarding staff came for this purose. Thank you for all your effort and dedication, Madame!

🌅 Friday: Rehearsal & Parents Cocktail 🌅

Friday morning saw our students waking up early for the last time to attend the all-important rehearsal, ensuring the Graduation Ceremony would be smooth and memorable. In the afternoon, their families joined us for the Parents Cocktail, where we reminisced about the highlights of the year and celebrated the achievements of our students.

🎓 Saturday: Graduation Ceremony 🎓

Finally, the great day arrived on Saturday, when the Graduation Ceremony took place in the Théâtre of Léman at the Fairmont Grand Hotel Geneva. This event was filled with emotional moments and culminated in a celebratory cocktail for all graduates and their families.


Martín, our dear prefect, won two prestigious awards: one for his remarkable academic improvement this year, and another for his involvement in the school community and wellbeing projects.


The Ceremony was a wonderful opportunity to reflect on all the memorable moments we have shared at CDL this year. What an amazing way to end a fantastic year and recognise the immense efforts our boys have made throughout this incredible academic journey.

Congratulations to all our graduates! 🎉 We are so proud of you and can’t wait to see what the future holds for each of you.

Finishing the 5th Wellbeing Pillar: Making Safe and Responsible Choices 🌟

This week at Collège du Léman, we successfully completed the 5th Wellbeing Pillar: Making Safe and Responsible Choices. Our focus was on helping students understand and navigate the complex world of peer pressure, highlighting both its positive and negative impacts.

Through various activities and discussions, our students explored how peer pressure can influence their decisions and behaviour. They learned strategies to make safe, responsible choices and to support their peers in doing the same. The engagement and insights from everyone were truly inspiring!

We are excited to share a video showcasing the feedback and reflections from our students on the work done these week. Check it out below! 📸🎥

Congrats to Martín, Panthers Player of the Year! 🎉

We are thrilled to announce that our beloved friend and prefect, Martín, has been honoured as the Panthers Player of the Year this afternoon! 🌟

Known for being the best football player at Collège du Léman, Martín’s exceptional skills, sportsmanship, and dedication to the game have earned him this prestigious award at the Annual Panthers Awards Ceremony. His passion for football and his unwavering commitment have made him a standout player and an inspiration to all.

Martín, your hard work and talent have truly paid off, and we couldn’t be prouder of you. Keep shining on and off the field! ⚽🏆

Let’s all give Martín a huge round of applause for this well-deserved achievement! 👏👏👏

Exciting Long Weekends at Collège du Léman! 🌟

The last two weekends were long ones here at Collège du Léman, and our students made the most of every moment! 🌟

Over these 7 days, our boys had brilliant opportunities to both exercise and have fun at the same time. It’s been wonderful to see their enthusiasm and energy shine through in everything they did.

🏔️ Navid was unstoppable, never missing a single climbing session. His passion for climbing is truly inspiring. Each climb, he pushed his limits a bit further, demonstrating not just physical strength but also incredible determination and focus.

🎢 Jeff and Meylis had an absolute blast visiting Luna Park, an amazing theme park in Lausanne. From thrilling roller coasters to fun-filled games, they enjoyed every ride and attraction. Their excitement was infectious, and their laughter echoed throughout the park. It was a day filled with joy and unforgettable memories.

Aloísio spent some quality time perfecting his golf skills. Whether he was practising his swing or strategising his next move on the course, Aloísio’s dedication to improving his game was evident. It’s wonderful to see him enjoying the game and improving each day, finding both relaxation and challenge in the sport.

We’ve captured some fantastic moments from these weekends – check out the videos and pictures below! 📸🎥
