Arshia had some friends round this weekend from Leman 2, they enjoyed playing pool and spending time together in the Louis Degallier boarding house #The Best Boarding House

Nutrition – How Sugar affects our brain and how do we know how much there is in our food.

This Monday we started the week with a couple of talks about how sugar affects our bodies. The students participated in the discussion and brought their knowledge into it.

To finalize the session the students were asked to suggest different kinds of snacks and drinks they want in the house but before they have to find out the nutritional info of the items they wanted to ask.

LDG Support!

Some of the best moments with the students are those when we (house parents) have the chance to witness our students supporting each other. Same way Arshia organized a meal and a birthday cake for Aitic and his friends last Friday; last evening Casper took the initiative to help Arshia with Bio-chemistry. And this is only one example of many, just this time I was able to capture it on camera. 😉

Forest Walk

Last Monday the students of Louis Dégallier went to the forest for a walk as an initiative to keep the students connected with the beautiful surroundings of Versoix and engage them into daily exercise.

The Benefits of Sports – Well-being sessions.

Last evening we had a very interesting session with the students of our house. On an open discussion we talked about the regular habits of each of us focusing on exercise and sports. Happily surprise to see that most of our students agree that exercise should be a very important part of our routines. And also that most of us exercise 3-4 times a week.
Our students in general are also aware of the physical and psychological benefits of physical activity. There is certainly room to improve and soon and soon we will also get into nutrition habits.

Sports Day.

Last Sunday we celebrated the Sports Day at CDL Boarding

We teamed up with Megard and Concha Anexe

Tug of war was definitely the hardest challenge.

Basketball shot outs weren’t easy neither.

Concentration was key for all the activities.

… as well as speed! It was a warm Sunday full of exercise and competition.
