We officially awoke the “Dragon spirit” of our 2 new boats

Members of our school community, partners, friends and children all came together to celebrate the 2000 years old Chinese tradition on the Divonne lake at the beginning of October. We officially awoke the “Dragon spirit” of our 2 Dragon Boats, which we received as a generous gift from a kind benefactor, by following the ancestral ceremony, which involved dotting the eyes on the decorative dragon head with red paint. Before watching a hearty parents-teachers race, the boats’ names chosen by our students were unveiled: one boat has been named “Poseidon” like the Greek god of the Sea and the other one “Hydra” like the water serpent with nine heads, each of which, if cut off, grew back as two. No doubt that those names, coupled with strong muscles, good rowing rhythm and the willpower of our students will scare any competition!

We want to keep encouraging our students to reach for the stars and with this great gift we hope to integrate Dragon Boats in our Physical Education curriculum and host a club on Sunday morning in Divonne for our students if we have enough participants. The school also made an important announcement last night and offered to make the 2 Dragon Boats available to companies with which parents have a relationship, so that unforgettable team building activities can take place thanks to them. You heard right: the offer to borrow the Dragon Boats for a corporate event is on the table! Please contact for more information.
