Photo Competition Winners – Olympus!

This evening Olympus was revealed as the winners of the ‘Joy’ photo competition!

Below is a reminder of the photo; ‘Jumping for Joy’ taken by our very own Yilun Ma. The winning photo took 30 minutes to create, and 143 photos in order to get all 30 boys jumping at the same time! In addition we have included another fantastic photo from Yilun’s collection of our time in Crans Montana!



Ski Week – Crans Montana 13-20 February 2016

Olympus had a fantastic time in Crans Montana last week during the February half term. 14 students from the house chose to spend their holidays at the Hotel Du Parc (4*) in Montana! The week was a brilliant opportunity to make new friends, learn/improve ones skiing or snowboarding ability and take part in evening activities (ice skating, snow tubing and bowling). After skiing the students were given ample time to explore the resort and rest in preparation for the start of school this week. Below are photos of the group at snowtubing, two on the Crans Montana ski area and a time lapse of the view from the hotel (taken by our very own Yilun Ma)!





Celebrating talent in Olympus – Yilun Ma

Yilun is passionate about photography, so was the perfect choice to photo the whole house for the most recent house competition! The theme of the competition was ‘Joy’ so naturally we were drawn to the famous English saying ‘Jumping For Joy!’ Below is the photo we submitted for the competition and another example of Yilun’s work. The photo was taken in his home city of Beijing, at an abandoned factory.



Celebrating Talent in Olympus – Veniamin Novozhilov

Veniamin has been asked to design the official poster for the Middle School Gymnastics Gala and the ‘Above The Rim’ basketball tournament by the PE department at CDL! The posters are displayed throughout the school in the lead up to the events. Veniamin enjoys creating art work in his spare time, and plans to study graphic design at University.



A Typical Saturday at CDL

Yilun and Mathieu headed up to Saint-Cergue for the day, to go hiking with huskies. The boys headed up with Salvatore and met their local guide, and huskies deep in the Jura Mountain range. The boys were then given their dogs and fitted out with snow shoes, and a harness to control the dogs.

At CDL the boys are given the opportunity to take part in a range of weekend activities! Hiking with huskies is just one of many available this month.

Yilun – “I’m extremely tired, but had a fantastic day! The dogs were very excitable, making for an interesting day!”




Hiking with huskies!

Happy New Year to all Olympus families. We trust you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Years.

2016 and the Olympus students are back in the swing of studies and weekend activities.

Sam, Oscar, Oleg and George headed up to the Saint-Cergue for the day on Saturday, for a spot of hiking with huskies! The team made their way up into the Jura mountain range and met their local guide. She showed them how to fit snow shoes and walk with the dogs. These dogs are born to pull! The team had a fantastic day, finished off by a hot chocolate in a local restaurant on the way back to College du Leman.
