Ski Week – Crans Montana 13-20 February 2016

Olympus had a fantastic time in Crans Montana last week during the February half term. 14 students from the house chose to spend their holidays at the Hotel Du Parc (4*) in Montana! The week was a brilliant opportunity to make new friends, learn/improve ones skiing or snowboarding ability and take part in evening activities (ice skating, snow tubing and bowling). After skiing the students were given ample time to explore the resort and rest in preparation for the start of school this week. Below are photos of the group at snowtubing, two on the Crans Montana ski area and a time lapse of the view from the hotel (taken by our very own Yilun Ma)!





Celebrating talent in Olympus – Yilun Ma

Yilun is passionate about photography, so was the perfect choice to photo the whole house for the most recent house competition! The theme of the competition was ‘Joy’ so naturally we were drawn to the famous English saying ‘Jumping For Joy!’ Below is the photo we submitted for the competition and another example of Yilun’s work. The photo was taken in his home city of Beijing, at an abandoned factory.
