A Roman Adventure with CDL! ๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰

Last weekend, CDL students embarked on an unforgettable journey to Rome! Among them were Lulu and Yufei from New Portena Boarding House, adding their spark to the adventure.

They visited the Vatican, where they explored St. Peter’s Square and marveled at the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. They wandered through Rome’s iconic landmarks, from the Pantheon to the Trevi Fountain, with some shopping time thrown in.

The next day, it was Lulu’s 15th birthday! ๐ŸŽ‚ The day was packed with history as they toured the Colosseum and the Roman Forum . A quick lunch break, and it was time to bid farewell to the Eternal City.โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Positive benefits of dog sitting ๐Ÿฆฎ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Getting out of one’s own daily routine is very important for mental and physical health and Hanna has found a great relaxation habit: going out with a sweet dog called Dixie four/five times per week.

Indeed spending time with animals not only is incredibly therapeutic but it also helps to reduce stress and facilitate social interaction.

Positive and inspirational initiatives in New Portena ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ’“

Since the beginning of the school, we have done our best for creating an uplifting and motivational atmosphere inside the House and among the girls by sending them self-reflection good morning and good night messages in different languages as well as with “take a smile” and “take a hug” post-it which can brighten students’ days.

Positive and inspirational House decorations in English and French are the news of 2024!
