What we eat affects our brain

The topic of today was related to the effects of what we eat in our brain.

After a quick debrief about how did we sleep and exercised last week, we moved towards the influence of food in our bodies and brain… It was interesting to hear Junior, all of sudden, saying… ” I can be a bit moody sometimes. Can it be because of what I eat?” 🙂

It is a certainty that there is an influence and this proved that somehow, these sessions are making people wonder about their habits and choices.

The eternal debate about balanced diet and tasty food took us some of the time, but I believe this debate is relevant so we discussed it. Pleasure in eating should still be a priority but it is important as well to acknowledge that we shall think beyond the taste and consider the benefits of a balanced diet. This debate could last for days 🙂


CDL Talks!! International Journalism!!

This evening saw the first instalment of our CDL talks!! This evening, our Grade 11 and 12 students were given the fantastic opportunity to listen to our first guest, Edward Girardet – an international journalist and global adventurer. It is brilliant that our students get the opportunity to listen, and learn from, someone so interesting.

Biking John

John is our Prefect in Leman 2 and he is passionate about outdoors and sports. John is always keen in doing biking and here he is this morning in the forest of Versoix. As we talk about Well-being, here is a good example on how to have a relaxed, balanced but still active week-end. With time and organisation you can fit in a bit of each in your week-end. Good job John, enjoy the ride 😀
