International School Parent Magazine – Autumn 2021

Wow! What a summer! I don’t know about you, but we took full advantage of the excellent weather and (mostly) newfound freedom. We visited family, travelled in Europe and Switzerland, and relaxed at home with family and friends. It was such a great antidote to the past 20 months of isolation. 

As ever, we have worked with our partners at Switzerland Tourism to prepare an abundance of Swiss Autumn and family-friendly activities to enjoy: Dents-du-Midi bike trails, hiking, museums, a visit to the Jungfrau, Italian-influenced adventures in Ticino and much more. 

There is also a range of unbelievable prizes to be won in our online competitions over the next few months. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page, newsletter, and website for more information on entering.

We have also had the fortune to meet some very interesting headteachers for this edition. First, we met with Dr Ruth Norris, who recently took the helm at St George’s International School in Montreux. With a strong belief in the transformative power of learning and an ethos that extols the benefits of holistic development within a diverse, international environment, she is set to lead the way in preparing students for life as global citizens. 

As usual, we have some excellent articles from authors around the world. We remain committed to helping parents and children make the most of the opportunities an education at an international school in Switzerland provides. 

Enjoy the start of the new school year. See you in the Spring!

Work hard and be the best.
