Ryunosuke is the final member in our house who received the boarding activities award. Ryunosuke loves to go biking each weekend and plays football every night with Aoto. Ryunosuke is also an extremely good football player!! If he continues to work hard he will be one to watch out for in the future!! The future is looking bright for Japans football teams.

Boarding Awards 2020!

Tonight the Olympus House went Virtual again, and we had our second Boarding Assembly held thought the magic of technology. Mr Usher and the whole Boarding team got together share their messages of positivity and support from this first semester. We had messages from Mr Salva, the boys were so Happy to see his smiling face on the screen again after his time away. Mr Antonio shared his stories from the second wellbeing pillar, and the boys even got a special Christmas Video from the House Parents.

The boys all got together in our spacious common room, there were more spaces than usual as people slowly start to leave for the winter break.

Francisco was one of the biggest winners in the Boarding House, achieving the highest score in the Boarding section within 3eme. Well Done Francisco, keep up the good work a medal is on it way to you very soon.


Music & Sports

Winter has properly arrived, it’s cold outside and students spend more time indoors. At CDL we encourage music and sports for the well being of our students.

Boris did not miss his Boot Training of saturday.

The Pizza Prize 🍕❗

Our grade 12 boys climbed to the top of Mt Olympus (in house points) to gaze out at their reward — a night of pizza galore. In non-covid times they would go somewhere outdoors, but the outdoors are currently cancelled. So they have earned themselves a whole slice of pizza wellbeing. Togther we watched the video that Jody kindly made for us on Non Violent Communication (NVC) and debated its content afterwards. It is beneficial to discuss our wellbeing with a full stomach 👍

Akihiro, Daniel, Vova, Marnix and Francisco enjoy their slice of wellbeing.

Francisco catches a glimpse of the camera: we’ve been spotted !

We watched the video Jody kindly put together about how to address each other in moments of stress and anger. Mr Rodrigo enjoys a slice of free pizza in the background.

Alas an evening of well being cannot end without a game of pool! Miguel and Albien on the table. Good night and good luck !

Midweek Madness activities!
