House Assembly… Wellbeing back in business

With the start of school, we have started our Boarding Programme and naturally our weekly House Assemblies.

The first one is always an important one ( they all are, but the first… is the first ) so we gathered some chocolate bars and sat down in our common room for a chat.

Among many other practicalities of our House and important notices… and after finishing the chocolate bars we entered our Wellbeing programme… (after the chocolate bars 🙂 )



Our first pillar is “Healthy bodies and minds” and for as evident and obvious this topic may be, there is always plenty to talk about, think of and apply for our personal balance.

These are the two take away points for this pillar. Each weekly topic for your house assemblies will relate to one of these:
1. How important is sleep?
2. How can we use our hobbies to de-stress?
We didn’t really get into much detail yet but we have discussed about the projects that the students can complete. An important message is that the Boarding Programme and the Extracurricular Dept provide the students with plenty of options for them to complete an individual or collective project and therefore enhance their wellbeing, take on-board healthy daily habits and lead by example thinking of the younger ones.
Some boys have already picked what they will want to achieve. Taichi and Kotaro are joining the Volleyball team from the school. They have been a part of it for years now and their game is an asset to the team, and source of pleasure and exercise for them. Mateus is super keen on football too and he is also trying to join the school team. Aryavir mentioned about keeping a sleeping diary and checking how his sleeping hours affect his promptness and punctuality in the morning.
Any tool, idea or project is a positive source of guidance and a valuable experience and we are happy to see that some boys are already onboard with the concept.
Next week, more details shall follow. Stay tuned.

Our Induction for new students

For all new students, the first days in a new school are a little bit daunting. So in these first days of the school year, we do focus all our energies in supporting and reassuring the new students that people are here to help as we get to know them better.

Our Induction focuses as well in encouraging them to make friends so that they support each other and this process is eased.

Today, all the High School students and some staff went on a tour of Versoix. This is quite important as this tour shows them the nearest supermarkets, train stations, bank and post office…

No tour of Versoix is complete without a visit to the Lake and this is where we stopped, removed our masks for a moment, just to take a quick photo-souvenir. The spirits seem to be positive and some friendships about to emerge 🙂

Welcome back everyone 2021/2022

Dear friends and family of the Léman 2 Boarding House.

It is with immense joy that we welcome you to this new school year. We are delighted to be back after a refreshing summer 🙂

As always, our main priority will be the well-being and the progress of our boys and to help me with that I am happy to introduce to you my new colleague, Mr Rodrigo.

Mr Rodrigo is from Spain, passionate about sports and has an impressive experience in working with youngsters. Likewise, he is passionate about nature and outdoor activities.

I am sure you will join me in welcoming Mr Rodrigo to our Léman 2 family.  For those who still have doubts, he is the tall one on the right of the photo 🙂


For those who have been acquainted to Mr Tomasino, we are happy to let you know that he is now working in the Middle School Office. We thank him for all he has done last year and since he is still with us at CDL , we are sure he will be in touch with the boys.

Soon, we will be opening up our school year. We invite you to keep watching this space. There will certainly be plenty of things to share and hopefully lots of celebration, joy and funny things … from us too 🙂

Once again, welcome back!!!! 🙂


Summer, sun, fun and relax. End of year message to our students.

Well… this is it. We have reached the end of the school year.

Léman 2 is nearly empty and many of you are on the way to your countries and holiday destinations.

It is now time to recharge batteries, see the family, friends and discover places, people and things about yourself that you probably you didn’t know you have. As you think about it, would you know that you would develop such strength this year in order to fight the worries, concerns and fears caused by the pandemic?

That is growing up. That is evolving and take ownership of your life. Maybe not all of it yet, but you are definitely on track to adulthood. You are learning …


And learning will never stop. One day you will look back at this year and find how much you have appreciated some of things that happened.

Dear students and dear family and friends of Léman 2, we wish you a wonderful holiday.

Tomasino and Antonio

Stay Safe topic – Sexual Consent

For the final Stay Safe topic of the year we have addressed one of the most delicate subjects… Sexual Consent.

More than the complexity of the topic, is the consequences and what it entails that are worth thinking about. Sooner or later we will all be facing a situation where this concept will be present and the fact of making or not the right decision, clearly depends on the honesty and transparency that the situation is dealt with.

Like a cup of tea…
