28 June - 02 July 2019: Come back to the mountain for Aiglon's 70th. Book your tickets today!
We are pleased to announce that Aiglon Magazine has been awarded the CASE Circle of Excellence Gold Award.
"It reads like a National Geographic magazine," commented one of the judges. "It’s both modern and classic. Every article contained interesting material relevant to their school and their surroundings."
"Aiglon College really knows their audience and delivers the kind of magazine you would expect; a modern and classic design beautifully presented. This is a coffee table piece." Aiglon's magazine serves as the cornerstone of the School's communications strategy. Each of the twice yearly issues serves to connect what's happening on Aiglon's campus today with the school's wider community of alumni and parents, some of whom have known Aiglon College since its founding.
"[The Aiglon Magazine] reinforces the life long journey of education for an adventurous life. Through a mix of short colour slots and longer features it strengthens and illuminates what it means to be Aiglon: what is like to be at Aiglon, to embody it and to live the Aiglon ethos—the balanced development of mind, body and spirit."
Along with this Gold Award we are also excited to announce the release of Issue 10. As a preview of this latest edition that should be arriving shortly to your house, you can read now one of our feature pieces, The Future of Education.
"In today’s complex and fast-changing world, there are no easy answers. Innovators must go beyond the obvious to find new and creative solutions. Which is where the International Baccalaureate comes in – celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
If the International Baccalaureate ever updates its logo, Aiglon’s Assistant Deputy Head (Student Life) has a suggestion. 'It should be a giant question mark,' says Mr Brian Martineau, 'because the IB is all about making young people question things rather than accept them at face value.'
There is one question, however, that Aiglonians are unable to answer until they have gained their IB Diploma and left Villars: just how good is it at preparing them for the complexities of modern life, within higher education or in society at large?"
