Former LSI Student competes at the 2010 Winter Olympics

Friday, February 26th, 2010

New Picture (7)LSI Canada would like to congratulate Simon Struebin at his inclusion on the Swiss Winter Olympics team. Simon studied for his CAE certicate ( the Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English Cambridge) at our LSI Toronto school back in 2002 . Simon is now back again in Canada, this time in Vancouver, as a member of the Swiss curling team.

Simon has recently been in touch with our school. Whilst at home in Basel he enjoys skiing, running, American football, hip-hop and basketball. Unsurprisingly though his main interest is curling and he is a member of the Basel-Regio Curling club in his home town of Basel. Simon has a successful career as a real estate agent.

Here at LSI Toronto we will be watching closely on February 16th when the curling events begin. All of us here will be cheering Simon on.

The Olympic Flame at LSI Toronto

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

2010 is truly an exciting time to come and study at one of LSI’s schools in Canada. This year the 2010 Winter Olympics will be held in Vancouver, presenting all our students based at LSI Vancouver with an excellent opportunity to see some of the sporting events at first hand. Not to miss out on the fun, the Olympic torch will be passing through many Canadian towns prior to the opening ceremony on the 12 February.

It seems Olympic fever has already hit Toronto. It was a cold evening in Toronto on the 17 December, but hundreds of people lined Yonge Street to cheer on the runner carrying the Olympic flame as he passed by LSI Toronto. Our students wasted no time recording this unique event.

LSI Toronto Contributes to Haiti Earthquake Relief

Selling pancakes to raise money for the LSI Toronto Haiti Earthquake appealDuring the week of January 25th, 2010, staff and students at LSI Toronto worked together to raise money for earthquake relief. Our staff and teachers cooked a pancake breakfast for the students before class. The hot breakfast was certainly welcome on a winter day! Kiley Woods, our Director of Studies, organized a bake sale, with delicious goodies from her own kitchen.

Students bought LSI mugs to paint and design, and we saw some really creative artwork!

By the end of the week we had collected $300, which will be matched by the Canadian government, so we actually contributed $600 to the people of Haiti! Well done, everyone!
