Weekend – Non Ski Activities

This weekend, despite the bad weather, we have continued to do various activities. On Friday and Saturday night we played intense games of Volleyball. On Saturday, those of our kids who didn’t go skiing stayed on campus and did activities such as tennis or photography.

We maintain the philosophy that we have set ourselves this term: to promote activities for the boys to enjoy themselves and have as much fun as possible with each other. Our Pillar 3 of the Well Being programme is focused on creating positive friendships, something that has been present since the beginning of the year. Some friendships are already well established and it is really nice to see that thanks to these kinds of activities, those friendships are becoming stronger and more valuable.

Ski & Snowboarding Time ❄️❄️❄️

Yesterday we’ve headed up to the mountains for our second session of ski and snowboarding. Weather conditions were challenging but did not stop our students from having fun.

Professional ski and snowboard instructors lead the groups of our students.

First Ski Day of the season

Saturday saw the first Ski day of the season. Our students had a bright and early start before setting off for the beautiful mountain resorts in Leysin and Villars. It was a bluebird day with brilliant snow conditions!!
