Celebrating Diversity: Collège du Léman’s Stand Against Bullying! 🌈🤝🌍

Hello, Collège du Léman champions of well-being! 🌟

In our ongoing quest to foster a nurturing environment, we’ve kicked off our second Well-being Pillar, and this time, our focus is on standing strong against bullying. The initial step in this empowering initiative led us to explore and celebrate the richness of diversity, specifically in terms of race and ethnicity.

Our incredible Franconis boys, alongside the entire boarding community, embarked on a meaningful journey by creating videos with their roommates. These videos shine a spotlight on the things they share in common, transcending the physical features that unite all boarders in our school. The result? An inspiring collection of videos that beautifully exemplify the unity within our diversity.

Check out the heartfelt videos below, where our students showcase the powerful connections they share beyond the surface. 🎥🤲

The Franconis family has truly outdone themselves, demonstrating that by embracing our commonalities and celebrating our differences, we create a tapestry of unity that stands resilient against bullying. 🤝🌐

A massive shoutout to our Franconis boys and the entire boarding community for their outstanding efforts in championing respect, understanding, and acceptance. Let’s continue to cultivate a culture of kindness and inclusion at Collège du Léman! 🌈🏫💙
