Over the past few years your child has made an impact on our campus, your donation generates a lasting legacy in their name.
For many years the parents of our graduating class have contributed to an Annual Class Gift. This year Guardians, Prefects and House Captains spoke with their classmates and acted as the liaison with the Advancement team to choose the beneficiary of their gift. The Upper Sixth students were thoughtful and thorough. They requested a meeting with the Head Master to make sure they understood the Campus Masterplan in order to make an informed decision. In the end, the class was evenly divided between a desire to support the new Assembly & Arts Building, and the Scholarship programme. It has now been decided that you will be able to choose which of these two projects you wish to support.
The Assembly & Arts Building is currently in the planning stage. In November we launched an architectural competition, inviting firms to visit the campus and learn about our project. Five of these firms committed to bidding for the project. The designs have been submitted and the Selection Committee is currently in the review process. The winning bid will be announced this spring. The Board of Governors has stipulated that in order for building to commence we must raise 80% of the funds through philanthropy.
Dependant upon the amount of funds raised, the 2017 Class Gift will provide:
A music practice room - CHF 50,000
A drama classroom - CHF 80,000
The back stage and green room - CHF 100,000
The light and sound control centre - CHF 150,000
The John Corlette Scholarship fund is an endowed fund that supports Aiglon’s commitment to maintaining a diverse and talented student body. We recognise that there are students for whom access to a school like Aiglon is impossible. It is our ambition to widen the access to students from across the globe in the hope that in the future they become agents for positive change and enhance the reputation of the school.
