LGB are here!!!!

28th May 2018

At 10am Classes 6A and 6D set off from school bound for the Cailler Chocolate Factory at Broc.

The excitment on the bus for the week ahead was palpable and we hadn’t even had any chocolate yet!!

At the factory the students were broken up into smaller groups for the tour. Even though we couldn’t wait for the chocolate tasting as the grand finale, learning about the history of chocolate making in the famous region and the families behind the industry was well worth the trip alone.

After the Cailler visit we had lunch in the beautiful surrounds of Gruyere and then it was back on the bus bound for Camp Suisse in Torgon.

Upon arrival 6A and 6D were greeted by more of the Camp Suisse team for an orientation of the camp and a few ground rules for the week.

Possibly even more anticpated than the chocolate tasting was the all important allocation of rooms. This is definitnely the most exciting part of the trip!

With lots of time spent on buses today, the after dinner activity is games on football pitch… the perfect way to burn off some of that excess energy.

Tomorrow Classes 6A and 6D are staying in Torgon for mountain biking and sports coaching and we can’t wait!


Classes 6B and 6C arrived at Camp Suisse in time for lunch. After being met by the Camp Suisse team and given a quick orientation of the camp it was time to get our teeth into some activities.

6C headed to the archery range with Rosie and Drew to test their Robin Hood (or Katniss Everdeen depending on your age) skills whilst 6B lept onto the climbing wall with Steve and Emma.

Delivering great fun, lively and interactive sessions is our main aim here at Camp Suisse and with the energy levels and raw enthusiasm that 6B and 6C showed this afternoon, the archery and climbing sessions were absolutely brilliant!

With the excitment of the rooming allocation now behind us we foucs our attention to tonight’s evening activity which is a camp fire and songs in the forest! Good old fashioned camp fun!

Tomorrow morning is an early start as 6B & 6C head to Glacier 3000 for the husky dog sledding and Martigny for Rosie’s <<now world famous tour>> of the Roman ruin sites!

The weather forecast is looking better and better for the week ahead so stay tuned for more adventures!
