It was another sunny action packed day at Les Elfes! We also are very happy to welcome Al Berteen to the camp who have flown all the way from Abu Dhabi. Regent, ST Joseph’s and Raffles and our individuals had a great day up the mountain improving their skiing. Some beginner groups were excited to be going up the chair lift and skiing down the mountain for the very first time. Raffles primary went on an excursion where they visited the chocolate factory. They learnt everything there is to know about swiss chocolate and got to taste lots too! They also visited Chateau de Chillon and the christmas markets in Montreux and bought lots of souvenirs and presents for there families.
In the evening, they had pumpkin soup, fish and rice for dinner and ice cream for dessert. Raffles primary went on an exciting torchlight walk adventure in the dark with our lovely staff. Al Berteen had a relaxing movie night because it was arrival day and they were tired from a long travel day. St Josephs, Regent, Raffles secondary and senior and our lovely individuals played La Fureur – A very competitive music quiz. There was lots of chanting and singing and amazing team spirit. The winners won by one point 151-150 and it was great to see all of the schools mingling and making new friendships.
They all went to bed shortly after the evening activity so that they have lots of energy for the big ski race tomorrow!!
Tuesday 13th – Skiing, Snowboarding, Clubs Night
Another exciting day here in Verbier with all students progressing well in skiing and snowboarding. Our first time skiers are off the beginners slope and hitting the blue runs following their instructors and having great fun on the mountain. There is a great atmosphere among the groups and there ability to learn quickly is really showing. With the sun shining yet again, some of our groups took some time out to enjoy the breath taking views with some well deserved hot chocolate. Our intermediate groups are also showing a lot of improvements and have covered most of the runs around Verbier, so a big well done to them!
Back at camp today there were a mixture of activities going on, including swimming, visits to town and table top games. As well as this, our individual students have been busy learning languages with our specialised teachers, which is a great educational service.
This evening it was Clubs Night,where our children had the chance to sign up for workshops on their interests. On offer tonight we had a cooking club, arts and crafts stations and design and build challenges. Everyone is getting stuck in which is brilliant to see.
