Graduation ceremony



On June 4th we said goodbye to the Seniors in a beautiful ceremony at the Kempinsky Hotel in Geneva. We will miss the Class of 2014 a lot but wish them all the best for the future! We hope you come back to CDL to visit us!

Versoix Chocolate festival

The 10th annual Versoix Chocolate festival, or “Festichoc” took place this past weekend, just 10 minutes walk from CDL.  Chocolate manufacturers from all over the region came together to display their exquisite creations:

A walk by the lake


What better way to spend a lovely Sunday afternoon than to take a stroll by the lake nearby?  Selena and Yulia paid a visit to the swans, who seemed quite hungry! 

Did you know…

  • Swans are not greedy creatures and will only eat what they need (but mould is poisonous to them so if you  give them bread make sure it is fresh!)
  • Swans can sleep standing on one leg or whilst floating, usually with their heads tucked back under a wing.
  • Swans mate for life. If a mate is lost then the surviving mate will go through a grieving process like humans do, after which it will either stay where it is on its own, fly off and find a new stretch of water to live on.




It’s ski season!!! :)

Evening with the teachers
