This weekend has been a special one. Our students have been involved in many activities:
First, Louis played basketball while Alex, Murat, and Temur were playing badminton on Friday. They had a wonderful time in Olympus.
On Saturday, on the one hand, Bohdan and Murat had a great time playing tennis. Ilya, Maksim, Herman, Aleksei, Navidreza and had an amazing climbing time.
On Sunday, Billy and, Otabek enjoyed an Escape Room experience. Furthermore, Artem, Adi and Nikolai had a nice time at chess.
As we dive into Semester 2 we are all excited about what is to come. This week in our Welcome Back assembly we shared with the students all the opportunities open to them this upcoming semester. With everyone refreshed after the holidays, many have come back with new motivations and ambitions. We want to capitalise on this and help the students achieve their goals.
Every weekend we will of course have our normal multitude of activities available for the boys to choose from and we will continue to share this schedule with you each week so you can help motivate them.
We will also be having our two Mountain Weekends in Fiesch which is a new location for us and the weather promises some good snowfall before our arrival.
We had another House Dinner this week in which we got to enjoy some Indian food and ate together in Olympus.
Each week we will also continue to have our International Dinner to celebrate a different country and the diversity in our community.
We also have the trips to Barcelona and Rome this month and next.
This week also started us on Pillar 3 of the Wellbeing Programme where we will be focusing on Positive Friendships.
There is plenty to keep everyone entertained and active and we look forward to 2023.
This evening we all sat at home and enjoyed a lovely dinner.
- Biryani Chicken with Naan Bread, Indian vegetables and spiced rice.
- Mango cake.
This week we have the pleasure to taste Belizean food. It was delicious.
There are some photos showing typical ingredients used in Belizean typical dishes:
- Taco: made by meat and guacamole.
- Ceviche: made by fishfood.
From Olympus Boarding School, we would like to wish all our Parents, students, Agents and friends a happy, healthy and prosperous 2023.
We would also like to welcome all our students to this new semester, where nothing but good experiences and fun things are going to happen.
This weekend was the last weekend of the year, so it was very special. Our students had a great time at the boarding school activities.
All of this culminated in our traditional Winter Ball, where all Boarding School students celebrated the end of the semester with lots of fun.
In these photos, we can see Navidreza with other children from different Boarding Housespreparing a delicious meal, as part of the cooking workshop.
Adi (pictured), Ryu and Murat went to their weekly tennis lesson to improve their racket skills.
As every week, Aleksei (photo left), Herman (picture right) and Dymtro spent a few hours hanging from boulders in the climbing class.
Artem and Nikolai came, as they do every Sunday, to the Chess Club, where the smartest minds in the school help each other to improve their strategic thinking.
Finally, the whole Boarding House celebrated “La Marmite de l’Escalade 1602”, a traditional Geneva event. Adi and Boris, as the youngest and oldest pupils respectively, were in charge of breaking the chocolate jar.
