Welcome Back, Winter Term 2017

Monday 9th January 2017

A warm welcome back to all our students who have returned this weekend to find Aiglon and the village blanketed with fresh snow. It is certainly a dramatic change from the end of 2016, and it gives everyone the feeling that winter has finally arrived.

Classes began this morning after the winter term’s first school assembly in which the students were presented with the initial results of the school survey taken in September. While perhaps a little bit “data heavy” for a Monday morning, the presentation gave everyone a chance to reflect on what it is that makes Aiglon a special place. We discussed what we do well as a community and where we also have the opportunity to make improvements, an important message of reflection on which to begin a new term and a new calendar year.

The Head Master also captured this theme in reminding the students that we should always give extra attention to our words and actions. He pointed out that it is easy to take an extra step to be kind and considerate, and that such small actions can create a difference.

With these reflections in mind classes begin, students head up the mountain and Aiglon gets going again, dressed for winter and all the opportunities that it will bring us.
