Starting in January Les Roches Marbella, under the direction of Mr. Moeed Shah, initiated a new campus fraternity styled program called LRM Houses. After a week of elections between the four established houses (Purple, Red, Green, and Blue), each of them have now established their captains and prefects who will lead the student body throughout the semester.
They are as follows:
Captain: Julien Caparros (France)
Prefect: Marta Lopez (Spain)
Captain: Anne Marie Grelle (Switzerland)
Prefect: Martin Cardamone (Finland)
Captain: Khaled Noureddin (Lebanon)
Prefect: Stanislav Goludets (Russia)
Captain: Igor Hoz (Czech Republic)
Prefect: Idza Kashero (Kenya)

After the enthusiastic round of elections, the first item on the agenda is for the captains and prefects to meet with their respective house members to come up with each house’s final name. This first step will be their legacy as the name they choose will be carried on each year by their future colleagues.
Following this important decision, each house will develop its very own constitution, bylaws and mottos that will serve as the foundation for all house activities in the near and distant future. With the objective of creating a true fraternal spirit, the houses will work among each other to encourage teamwork, citizenship and communal support for each of their members wherever and whenever they may need it.
Once the houses have officially established their governing procedures they will then set out to organize and participate in a series of campus events throughout the semester. In the works at the moment are various sports challenges, a moderated team debate on issues relating to the hospitality industry, and an exciting Master Chef competition.
Here in the blog we will keep our readers updated with the latest developments of this historic Les Roches Marbella moment. Until then, congratulations to all students and staff for their overwhelming support in implementing this program. Good luck and may the best House win!
