Happy Birthday Iyowuna!

Today we had the pleasure of celebrating a Grade 10 birthday โ€“ Happy Birthday Iyowuna!

Once again, questionable yet enthusiastic singing from the house and a delicious chocolate cake to round it off.

We will give you pumpkin to talk about!

Some of the boys have been putting their creative and carving skills to the test today, producing this masterpiece of a pumpkin…or is it a spider.

Howl you doin’?

Excellent work Victor and Kevin!

BOO!LYMPUS: Comings and Goings at CDL

Welcome back, Boys and Ghouls!

It’s still the October season at Olympus Boarding house and we’re feeling all sorts of festive:

Below, we can see the turning of the leaves here in Geneva. From the fresh greens of spring and summer, autumn flares intense reds and yellows to welcome the new and exciting chill!

But of course, Autumn finds itself not only focused on the passing of the leaves or the season, but also the passing of another birthday. Below, we can see our very own Toma blowing out the candles on his Eighteenth birthday. We wish him all the best and do so quickly so that we can get at some of that cake. Which was delicious, by the way.


So, boys and girls, October rushes to a close quickly, but not without its many charms. With Hallow’s eve around the corner, we wish all of you an exciting rest of the season. With our best wishes, from Olympus Boarding House!

 

Happy Birthday Jinwoo!

Today we had the pleasure of celebrating a Grade 10 birthday – Happy Birthday Jinwoo!

Brownies and Black Outs

With all the time that comes with a day, it’s difficult to not only figure out how to use all of it, let alone how to use it well.

Over this Wellbeing Pillar of healthy mind healthy body, many of the students have been providing responses of their own to the dilemma that comes with what the right choices are in keeping a schedule of sleep that serves us best.

Iyowuna has chosen his preferred medium of art to respond to our meetings to create a personal project:

Above, Iyowuna has chosen to depict two male figures who contrast each other by the obvious choice of healthy sleeping habits. The one on the left can be seen spending time on his computer at night when he should be resting and can also be seen paying for it dearly as he is irritable and tired during the waking hours. The other, who spends his nights getting rest, it content and inspired when he is awake.ย  A cautionary tale as well as an inspiring one.

Below, we have Jinwoo Jung’s sleep experiment of his own design where he tracked his energy related to how much sleep he got throughout the week. And we can clearly see the benefits of getting enough sleep during the academic week.

Sleep gives us enough energy the following day to pursue our passions to the fullest! And there’s no passion more rewarding or intense as culinary combat, in which we can witness Boris engaged in during the C.D.L bake-off.

Delicious! Though these brownies did not win Olyumpus the Bake-Off crown, they satisfied our hunger nonetheless. Thank you Boris!

And thank ‘you’ for keeping up with the newest goings-on at Olympus Boarding House.

Wishing you all the best this October 6th

Charity food collection for Afghanistan

The boys in the House have this weekend started to collect food to be sent to some of the refugees that have been displaced during the recent shift in power in Afghanistan.

The boys have been filling the box over the weekend and will continue for the coming weeks to get as much as possible to be sent.
