What a year it has been! Good work everyone.
To our Graduates and leaving students, we will miss you and remember you fondly.
To our returning students, we will miss you as well…but see you next year!
See you in August!
After a rainy day, the boys took advantage of the calmer evening weather and went out onto the astroturf to play some football.
As it’s Sunday, they also had to play and communicate fairly quietly, which was definitely a challenging experience.
Ablai once again got himself up this morning, even AFTER doing leg day the previous day, and went for a 4 km run with Mr. Joe and the rest of the Running Club crew.
We had quite a large group of boys in cooking today – in fact Leman 1 dominated the second time slot. As a result, the house was chock full of chocolate and lemon/vanilla cupcakes.
This evening, CDL students of various ages gathered together to put on a series of musical performances and showcase the skills they have been developing this year – including three of our boys Gabriel, Amirhossein and Ilian.
Today we celebrated our diverse community here at CDL with International Day!
As a result of world events, this is the first time in a few years that we have been able to hold this event, and the return was a resounding success.
By the time I managed to get to the Chinese and Japanese food stalls, organized in part by some of our Leman 1 students, they had been completely sold out!
This evening, Leman 1 and Leman 2 barbecued together to celebrate the birthday of our dear Mr. Antonio from Leman 2!
This morning, Ablai once again joined Mr. Joe from Olympus for a 5km run. He was fairly tired already and it was a blisteringly hot day, but he pushed on.
We would like to commend him for his perseverance and tenacity!
This sunny Sunday afternoon, a bunch of our 10th graders headed to the Golf de la Vieille-Bâtie and spent the afternoon on the course.
It is International Dinner Night ladies and gentleman!
This balmy Wednesday evening we had the opportunity to enjoy some food generously provided by Chef Marie-Noelle from Le Chef Dodo.
This evening, during our Boarding Assembly, Ablai played Claire de Lune by Debussy.
And what an excellent job he did! He has practiced diligently for days and it showed!
On this day, the Fourth of May,
Leman Old Glories came to play,
With Leman 1, to see who would stay,
In our Boarding Football Tournament!
After an arduous game in the rain and a tight first half, Leman 1 came out ahead with a score of 6 – 3!
Ramadan is over, and our own Amirhossein is celebrating the end of his 30 days and 30 nights fast by enjoying a meal with his friends.
We ordered some Iranian kebabs, rice and drinks to make him feel more at home.
Today, the boarding volleyball team represented Collège du Léman in an intermural volleyball tournament which involved teams from the American School of Leysin and La Châtaigneraie.
Two of our boys – Tomohisa and Amirhossein – are a part of the team.
Today our boys joined the Community Service group and helped keep our campus clean and beautiful.
Alan, Ablai and Shintaro spent a beautiful morning at the Geneva Golf Academy in Collex-Bossy to fire off a few rounds on the driving range.
Weihao, Henry and Kosei went to play a few rounds of badminton with our own Mr. Max this morning, helping him to get his step count in!
Today, Ablai, along with some of our other students, went for a brisk 4km run in the morning sun with Mr. Roger from Leman 2.
On this day in the year 2022, we celebrated the birth of our dear Alan!
To his health, wealth and happiness!
Yesterday, Shintaro participated in the SGIS golf Tournament in the sunny mountains of Aigle, just up the road from Montreux.
Saturday morning, Junqi, Amirhossein and Henry went to Cooking club and made some lovely giant profiteroles.
Three of our boys spent some time today picking up litter along the canal path that runs behind CDL.
Good work boys.
Saturday morning, we broke out the griddle and made ourselves some pancakes, with blueberries and white chocolate toppings.
If there’s anything that 5 people (including myself) of varying ages and backgrounds can agree on, it’s that pancakes are delicious.
Our resident prefect Iman spent Saturday morning brushing up on his tennis skills alongside his fellow Persian Aryan.
