Sports Day! “Go! Fight! Win!”

Sports day pt.1 took place this Sunday. The Villa du Lac girls competed against our sister house New Portena in a range of different activities such as the classic tug of war, and the three-legged race. Our resident basketball player, Carmen, had to put her coaching skills to the test to lead the team to victory in the basketball portion of the afternoon. The girls did a fantastic job and we were very impressed by their team spirit, it made for an enjoyable afternoon full of competitive drive and victorious, joyful laughs.


Working Hard or Hardly Working?

This weekend was full of activities and treats for the girls in Villa du Lac. Many took on Crossfit with a fighting mentality on Saturday morning while others tried their hands at Tennis, Golf and even saddled up for Horse Riding. Sunday brought out Lucelia’s baking skills as she prepared Pastel de Nata, a traditional dessert from Portugal, for all the girls; which they could enjoy in the house after dinner.

From Yvoire to Cleaning up Lake Geneva!!

It was a jam-packed couple of days for the girls in Villa du Lac this weekend – taking part in activities such as Tennis, Paragliding and Horse-Riding! Some even opted to explore the picturesque town of Yvoire, France on their Sunday, making it back with some beautiful snapshots of the day. Not only that but the girls managed to spend several hours on Saturday giving back to the community by cleaning up Lake Geneva, we were very proud of our House’s turnout as most of the girls were keen to get involved and never once complained as the day became tiresome. Good job girls!

Weekend Activities

This weekend the Villa du Lac girls participated in various activities! Nycol took to zumba, showing us her free spirit and amazing moves; she came home asking to be signed up for every Zumba class this term. Meanwhile, Alina, Jessica and Chloe had their stamina put to the test as they cycled around discovering Versoix, seeking thrill and adventure.
