 ‘If you want to appreciate the beauty of a CLC daisy, you’ve got to examine its roots.’ Freya Granger tells us about the new project with which you can get involved to celebrate the cultural diversity represented at CLC.

If ever asked to describe the CLC community in one, all-encompassing word, I don’t think I would hesitate. ‘Eclectic’ would be my reply, and for good reason. The school term here at CLC represents a union of different cultures and backgrounds from around the world. In a school with so rich a mix of nationalities, have you ever been curious about where your hockey teammate, chem partner, or housemistress comes from? In the chaos and activity that is CLC life, we often forget to appreciate these details – the details that the Our Stories Project aims to bring to light.

By Megan Thresh

Early on Tuesday last week, a friend turned to me, and in a rather offhand manner mentioned, “You do realise that the US government shut down this morning, don’t you?” I was astounded. Why was I not woken up to this news with alarm bells, sirens, and police cars screeching down Overton Road? Surely the closure of the American government, managing one of the most influential nations in the world, would result in chaos; stock markets collapsing, riots, world-wide anarchy? As it transpired, although bewildering the situation may be, the shut down of the US government was not half as melodramatic as one might have anticipated.

The €10 billion bailout from the European Union and the IMF came at a heavy price; the restructuring of the nation’s largest bank, The Bank of Cyprus and the liquidation of the second biggest, Laiki Bank, is only the peak of the iceberg.
