Welcome to the fifth and final of our Wellbeing Programme : Making Safe and Responsible Choices.
The key take-away points from this pillar will be as follows:
1. Time in: how do you connect with inner world?
2. Attachment figures: how our attachment style influences the way we make our decisions?
This week we will focus on Time in!
What we experience in our inner world, which includes our feelings, thoughts, perceptions,
memories, beliefs, hopes, dreams, desires, motivations, longings etc, can occur even without us
being aware of it. The lack of self-awareness entails the failure to see the patterns in our behaviours
and thinking. As a result, we risk making choices that are not aligned with what we really are and
with what we really want.
On the contrary, when we develop the habit to pay attention to these inner experiences we become
more self-aware. This can help us have more control over the decisions and choices we make and
prevent us from being at the mercy of our own feelings, desires and external negative pressure.
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,

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.

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.
Tonight, in the second match of the new season of the Boarding Football Cup, Leman 1 went up against the staff team, Leman Old Glories.
