Monday 10th December, First Ski Day
Snow just won’t stop falling at Les Elfes !
It has snowed all day today, and it looks like it is going to stay that way for the next couple of days. Yay! Excellent, because today was the first day of skiing for both the school from Singapore, and for the school from Nairobi. Everyone managed really well to get their ski gear on and we departed to the ski slope at 8.45 am, as planned.
After a well deserved lunch in one of our restaurants on the slopes, the students went back to their skiing lessons. Afterwards, students were welcomed back with a tasty snack which had been baked the night before by the students that partook in the baking class activity. Yum!
Later on this afternoon, the students chose between three activities: Arts and Crafts, Snowman Building and Shopping in Verbier. Those in Arts and Crafts made lovely cards, origami figures and christmas tree decorations. Those in Snowman Building made fantastic big fat snowmen, and those who went shopping in Verbier bought treats and gifts for themselves and for loved ones.
After a delicious dinner, the students partook in a “Design and Build” evening activity. Younger students had to design and make a contraption that would protect an egg from breaking when dropped from a balcony in one of the Les Elfes buildings. The older students had to invent and present the most effective machine that could clear snow. Winners will be chosen tomorrow!
