Weekend celebrations :)

This weekend we have had a few special events to celebrate. Our G9 have been awarded as they won the Monthly house competition. Winning the house competition you know what it means: PIZZA !

Secondly, our beloved Nihad wanted to celebrate a bit in advance his birthday this weekend with his friends. He organised a lovely BBQ at the garden in Concha. Happy (in advance) Bday Nico ! but… 6th may the official one 😉

 

Visit to Cailler Museum & Gruyères

Finally  !! After so long waiting for it… our boarders could enjoy the trip to one of the many “Wonderland” we have in Switzerland.

This time our boarders went to visit the <<Cailler Museum and Chocolate Factory >> . As part of the Lake activity program that CDL offers to its boarders. Our boys  were able to learn about the elaboration process of one of the most emblematic Swiss products and … of course to taste it !

After this visit, the group had the possibility to enjoy free time in the beautiful city of Gruyeres, where the most iconic Swiss Cheese has its origin .

 

House Meeting and Wellbeing discussion

Wednesday night is meeting night. Tonight we discussed different upcoming topics for the week ahead. We also spoke about the fitness challenge that will be happening for the month of May.

Here is the challenges that are set for the students who would like to take part. It is a different challenge for each day. It is a fun way to stay active and is great for the wellbeing of our students.

As part of the Wellbeing Pillar 5; Making safe and responsible choices, tonight we watched a short video that discussed the changes that happens when going through the process of being an adolescence.

Iyowuna received boarder of the week for this week.

A food truck came to visit campus today to spoil us with some delicious burritos to the whole of boarding. It is fair to say they went down a treat!!
