World Bicycle Relief (WBR) is a wonderful charity that gives bikes to thousands of students in the developing world. These bikes make their daily commute more practicable and as such reduce absenteeism and improve lives forever!
We have challenged our boarders and staff to run a week’s worth of commuting to school for the average recipient of a WBR bike. In the time they take to do this as a relay team, we thought we could cycle all the way around Lac Léman (170 km) first.
Turns out the runners won!! Great fun for a good cause and we have to say a big thank you and praise our boys Antoni, Ablai, Martin, Amirhossein, Teodoro and Roi. Also a big thank you to Mr Rob who accompanied each and everyone of our runners to ensure they had a safe and motivated run. Take a look at our champions:
As we approach the final days of this school year, our boys had a last chance to explore our many activities in offer for the weekend. Amongst cooking, wakeboarding, Tennis and much more, have a look at some of these moments:
Climbing offers many excellent benefits and during this year, Mr. Rodrigo has challenged a few students to find their grip and endurance every week. This problem solving activity keeps a healthy body but also releases stress specially now during this exam period. Antoni and Stefan were regular climbers and in the afternoon had the opportunity to put their skills to the test in a friendly competition followed by a well deserved Pizza.
We thank Mr Rodrigo for being there every week and for the farewell party … well done to the Leman boys and until next year for climbing! Have a look to the boys in action:
