Olympus Mountain Weekend

Last weekend we had our first of three Mountain Excursions. The Grade 9 and 10s went to La Tzoumaz and the Grade 11 and 12s went to Verbier. This is an excellent opportunity early in the year for the students to be able to bond and get to know each other. Both locations offer panoramic views over the mountains and a range of exciting activities. The students could choose from rock climbing, ropes course, via Ferrata, trotinete, mountain biking, multisport, hiking and so much more.

Chess Tournament at Olympus

The first round of Chess Tournament has been celebrated at Olympus today. We were privileged to have two local representatives: Herman and Imanali.

Very well played by Imanali, congratulations to Herman for advancing to the next round.

Thanks to both of you for representing Olympus in the tournament.

Pillar 1- Healthy Body, Healthy Minds

Our first Pillar is Healthy Body and Healthy Minds.

This is a very broad topic which takes into consideration anything and everything that leads to our mental and physical wellbeing. In order to focus us on a particular area, Mr Rob the advocate for this pillar has challenged us first to think about;

Discovering how we can use sport and our hobbies to maintain a healthy mental balance

We all have hobbies and passions but perhaps we are not conscious of how good these can be for us. We discussed this in our House Meeting and had a presentation on the topic from Adi. He presented to the rest of the House how it is important we make time to continue our hobbies in the busy boarding life we lead. Adi likes to play the guitar and finds this both a challenge to keep his mind alert, active and learning; but it is also therapeutic and relaxing for him. He feels calmer and more relaxed after he spends 20 minutes practising and it gives him a sense of accomplishment which boosts his self-esteem.

Likewise, anyone who enjoys running, painting, juggling, judo, cooking or the 1001 other hobbies that we have will benefit from making sure we take the time to do and enjoy them!


International Dinner: Spanish Dinner

It was unexpected for Olympus guys finding Spanish dinner as the second International Dinner. At the same time, it was a wonderful surprise to find paella and crema catalana.

From which country will the next international dinner be held? Olympus team is curious and ready for the next one.
