CDNIS Ski Trip to Verbier Switzerland

By | News & Updates | No Comments

The CDNIS Ski Trip to Verbier Switzerland was really the trip of a lifetime. A group of 38 students/staff from CDNIS made the most of every opportunity to enjoy pristine snow, amazing Swiss culture and the company of students from around the world living together in a Chalet on the slopes of the Swiss Alps. Each night inches of fresh snow meant the trails were fresh and more importantly the snow ball fights were supplied with the best material. We had first timers who became experts going from the baby slopes to the Intermediate runs in 6 days. We had great skiers – and snow boarders – who became pros and loved the challenges offered by the advanced runs and the snow park with jumps and snow cross courses. After almost 50 hours of skiing (6 days x 8 hours a day) on the slopes we were exhausted but exhilarated. But the fun didn’t stop. In the evenings we had the opportunity to try tobogganing, ice skating, movies, music quizzes, Chinese dumpling making to celebrate CNY, and shopping in the Swiss village. For these activities we were joined by other schools from Kuala Lumper, London, Dubai and Singapore who were also at Les Elfes for their School Ski week. On Day 8 we took a cultural tour to Lausaane to visit the Olympics HQ and the Olympics Museum. For sports fans and historians this was a fabulous experience. For Sports history buff’s like Mr Mac is was amazing to see the highlights and evolution of the Olympic games. For chocolate history buffs like JLo, the afternoon at the world famous Callier Chocolate factory was also a highlight, especially the unlimited tasting! After our 10 day adventure all students returned happy and healthy (one broken collar bone!) and will have memories of the Swiss snow for ever.

This is the fist CDNIS Ski trip for a number of years. We have already made a booking with Les Elfes for Verbier 2017 (Jan 27 – Feb 4) and registration for this trip will open on May 1.
The CDNIS group were fantastic ambassadors for CDNIS and were an absolute pleasure to travel with. We had students aged 8-18 on the trip and the older students took great care of the younger students, and the friendships formed between grades and between different schools were also highlight of the trip.

Super SEASAC has been an incredible experience for all 55 of our TWolves athletes and our 12 Coaches.

Having 4 sports, 600+ likeminded SEASAC athletes, all in the same place competing at the highest level has been awesome. The SEASAC Gala dinner tonight is going to be a special memory.
It almost makes our superb results today secondary in importance ….. almost!
We are SEASAC Touch Girls Div 2 CHAMPIONS!  This is an incredible performance and a massive achievement.  There were so many people here, delighted for our girls and amazed at our development over the last 3 years.  Huge credit to Kirk and Liam for growing this great group of girls into such an impressive unit.  6 games 6 wins, including an amazing Championship game against home town BPS with their big crowd and home conditions + 30+ degrees.
Our Boys Basketball have put in a most improved performance and made the semi finals of SEASAC Div 1 which is already one better than last year. Tomorrow morning they have the chance to be just the 3rd CDNIS Boys Basketball team to bring home a SEASAC Medal when they play for Bronze. We play past champions UWC Dover, but we have a good chance of pulling off an upset.
Our Girls Basketball just missed out on third after an early win and a late loss today.  We now must rise again tomorrowmorning when we face NIST in the play off for 5th/6th. A win and we stay in Div 1, a loss and we head to Div 2.  We are confident and committed.
Our Boys Rugby had their best ever SEASAC Rugby with a big win in the 7th/8th playoff Final.  To come from not being able to field a team last year to being competitive with all but the Singapore schools, is a great achievement and a good place to build a programme from.
Our Boys Tennis team were within touching distance of a SEASAC Championship, or at least a final, but a few tie breakers and a severe case of Heat stroke for our #1 player (a visit to hospital by ambulance, but all recovered now) means we will play for Bronze tomorrow at 10am. Our boys are right on the cusp of a first championship but we will have to wait one more year with our talented team of young players.
Thats all from Bangkok Super SEASAC, good luck also to our SEASAC Girls Tennis team in Singapore who will play for bronze in the thunder effected Singapore SEASAC.
I am most proud that our Athletes have represented our school to the highest standard on and off the field.  They are an absolute pleasure to take away and a credit to our school.  The same could definitely be said for the group of 13 of the best coaches you will ever find who are giving up this weekend to support the team, and they are loving it.
Final update to come, we will be home just before midnight on Sunday!
