Hiking with huskies!

Happy New Year to all Olympus families. We trust you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Years.

2016 and the Olympus students are back in the swing of studies and weekend activities.

Sam, Oscar, Oleg and George headed up to the Saint-Cergue for the day on Saturday, for a spot of hiking with huskies! The team made their way up into the Jura mountain range and met their local guide. She showed them how to fit snow shoes and walk with the dogs. These dogs are born to pull! The team had a fantastic day, finished off by a hot chocolate in a local restaurant on the way back to College du Leman.

Shoe boxes!

Today, Olympus created two Shoeboxes for the SOA appeal with the school! The two boxes, at a cost of 80CHF between all students in the house, were jam packed full of goodies! Each box contained pencils, pens, notebooks, teddy bears, tennis balls, cards, toiletries, biscuits and dice. All destined for children in CDLS’s partner school in South Africa.

Oscar Gomez – ‘This process was extremely satisfying and allowed us to work collectively as a house for a good cause! The shoeboxes are destined for children a lot less fortunate than us, and allowed us to work as a team to support the SOA project!’

Dance Battle!

Today was the house competition! Olympus participated well, with special thanks to Veniamin for performing an incredible dance routine for the house, beating Louis Degaillier!
