✨⭐ Paragliding ⭐✨

Today, Marcela was lucky enough to go Tandem Paragliding here in Switzerland ✨

Thankfully she had good weather, the clouds literally cleared the second they were in flight mode, meaning she had beautiful views over Lake Geneva and it’s surroundings 🌎

Marcela said it was an amazing experience, something she will never forget! ⭐

Class of ’24 celebrations ✨

It’s been one week and we are still reminiscing about the endless celebrations from last weekend.

Below are some photos and videos of our graduates at prom and the official graduation ceremony 👩‍🎓🎉



We are beyond proud of their achievements, both academic and personal. Not only have they have worked incredibly hard to reach this point, but they leave CDL with memories & friendships to last a lifetime 💕

We can’t wait to see what they will get up to during this next chapter of their lives and whatever they choose to do, we have no doubt they will fully embrace this part of their journey ✨

Best of luck to our wonderful leavers,

The World Is Your Oyster 🌎⭐


The city of canals ✨

This weekend, 4 of our Louis Degallier students joined the school trip to Venice and had an incredible time in the beautiful sunshine! 💕

The students enjoyed visiting the fabulous Doge Palacio, where they were able to discover its history through a guided tour. After, they had some free time to explore the famous city of canals 🌎

And of course, you can’t visit Venice without enjoying a Gondola ride through the beautiful turquoise canals ✨

On the last day, the students went to Murano Island to discover the history of glassmaking. They were mesmerised by the skill and talent of the craftsmen, a truly memorable experience 👏

Italian food was enjoyed by all, including pizza, pasta and every flavour of gelato. Below is a picture of Marcela’s seafood spaghetti which she said was incredible! 🍝

They returned this evening with big smiles on their faces, they truly loved this magical place and made some wonderful memories 🥰

A weekend in Berlin 🌏

This weekend, 4 of our Louis Degallier students joined the school trip to Berlin and had a fantastic time! 💕

During this trip, they enjoyed an active guided tour, visiting some of the famous historical monuments – some of which you will see pictured below 🗺🚶‍♀️✨

In addition to the tour, they also did the Berliner Odyssey VR adventure which took them through the history in a more visual way, giving them an idea of how Berlin was during the last 9 centuries 🕌

As expected, they got to enjoy traditional German food during the weekend, including an urban Alpine experience at the famous Lindenbräu restaurant 🥨

And of course, they were able to enjoy their free time to visit the shops and local markets 📸

All in all, they had a great time on this cultural city break and managed to dodge the rain here in Versoix! 🌞

Welcome back 💕✨

Today we welcome back our returning students to the boarding houses and we are excited to hear all about their adventures from the break! ✨🌏

And as you can see, Spring has definitely sprung here and our garden is blossoming beautifully 🌸 May this glorious weather continue 🌞

A wholesome weekend 💕

This weekend, our students spent quality time with their friends, enjoying each other’s company over beautifully cooked meals.

Kseniia & Daria cooked a traditional Russian lunch with salad, chicken, and potatoes, and homemade pancakes to finish 🥞

Ayaka cooked a hot pot using fresh and healthy ingredients, and it smelt absolutely delicious! It went down very well with her friends 🍜

Regina decided to try something new and went horseback riding! As it was her first session, the instructor helped her bond with the horse through exercises that required trust. This included horse riding facing backwards, on her knees, and on the side. Regina loved it and is already looking forward to her next lesson! 🐴

Marcela went to the slopes and thoroughly enjoyed herself. The day started out cloudy, but then it started snowing, and soon enough the sun broke through in time for the students to enjoy the last day of the season! ⛷🌞

Meanwhile, Defne & Sakura helped raise awareness around plastic waste by participating in a school project supporting ‘Mother Earth’ 🌏 There will be a video on our CDL social media soon, so feel free to check it out!

And finally, to finish the weekend off on a sweet note, Sakura baked a delicious Strawberry Tart. This was probably the most challenging bake yet, as she had to produce a crème pâtissière, but Sakura being Sakura, challenged herself and proved she could do it! Well done 👏

All in all, it was jam packed weekend, full of fun and plenty of variety 💖💕

This weekend in Louis Degallier 56 ✨

After a busy week of mock exams, our girls had a lovely, relaxing time this weekend, and enjoyed different activities and celebrations.

On Friday, it was International Women’s Day and Taisiia got treated to some gorgeous roses from her loved ones 🌹

Sakura & Defne took their DJ Mixing skills to the next level – a great duo who are definitely ready to take to the stage! 💿🎤

Marcela, our Louis Degallier Globetrotter headed to France to see the wonderful sights of Paris, including the Eiffel Tower and the iconic Musée de Louvre. She also got to see the famous Mona Lisa, and enjoy all the Parisian delicacies! 🥐

The girls who stayed in the boarding house got to enjoy their usual weekend activities, as well as our very own Saturday night movie club, complete with popcorn, laughter and relaxation.

We also had plenty of fashion shows ahead of the official Graduation photos this week, and we have no doubt that our girls will look great in whichever outfit they opt for! 💖



February break at CDL ⭐❄

Whilst some of our students travelled back to see friends and family during the break, others joined the school trips available, including the Winter Camp to Crans Montana, and a very special trip to Finland ⛷🌲🏔

Here are some wonderful photos from the students in Louis Degallier 56 & 60 who joined the school trips. I think it’s clear to see that both experiences were full of fun, exploration, and memorable moments 💖✨

Here is Marcela at the famous Arctic Circle in Finland! ❄

The trip to Finland also included Huskey rides, magical visits to reindeer parks, snow-shoe touring and a wonderful trip to the Ranua Arctic Wildlife Park, an organisation that specialises in protection programs for endangered Arctic animals, as well as offering care and support for wounded or orphaned wild animals. It was here that the students got to see Finland’s only Polar Bear, a highlight of the trip! 🐺

Some of the group were lucky enough to witness the famous Northern Lights pictured in the early hours of the morning – a truly magical experience indeed 💚💙

Meanwhile, some of our boarding students took to the slopes in Crans Montana and were met with excellent snow conditions, perfect for their winter sport pursuits 🎿⛷

As you can see, the students were spoilt with some beautiful views up in the Swiss Alps 🏔


Baking with Blueberries 💜

Sakura & Regina produced a real crowd-pleaser this weekend with their delicious blueberry cheesecake 🧁

They made a big cheesecake for the house, and then, kindly delivered some mini cheesecakes to the boys in Louis Degallier 60 ⭐

Here is a video showcasing the skill and effort that went into making this, what can only be described as, lilac coloured MASTERPIECE! 💜💜💜


As always, plenty of fun and laughter was had during the process! 💖

Thank you girls for treating us this weekend! 🙏💕

Collège du Léman hits the mountains once again!🎿🏔

The only January blues we are experiencing are the crystal blue skies in the incredible Swiss Alps 💙❄✨

This weekend was our second weekend spent in the mountains and once again, we were spoilt with the most glorious weather 🌞

Our older students had the opportunity to visit Crans Montana, a popular ski resort in the Swiss Alps. Everyone who went on the slopes spoke of the great snow conditions and amazing ski runs ⛷🎿

The mountain weekends are always a great way to get to know other people within the CDL boarding community, and our students always return with lots of special memories made with their fellow boarders💕

Below are a few photos from both Louis Degallier 56 & 60 from the last two mountain weekends ✨
