28 June - 02 July 2019: Come back to the mountain for Aiglon's 70th. Visit our site for more details.
Issue 11 of the award-winning Aiglon Magazine is now out to your home! If you don't receive a copy of the magazine and would like to, be sure to let us know.
The cover of this bright red issue celebrates Aiglon's 70th anniversary year. For this special occasion we commissioned a design that captures the unique character and history of this special place in a fun, memorable way. Try and find a memory you recognise!
Once more this issue shows off the best of Aiglon --and asks the big questions. Richard McDonald addresses the topic of goals and how we can measure success in today's metric-centric world. Houseparents discuss life in house and what it takes to craft an international family. We also take a close look at an old classic, Erik Friedl's Aiglon movie from 1971, hearing from alumni about what it took to pull off this now classic bit of Aiglon history! Take a look inside for much more...
As always, we love hearing from you. Enjoy this special issues and we look forward to welcoming all our community back here on the mountain for next year's 70th Anniversary!
From the Editor's Letter
"I AM DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE that our school magazine has won a CASE Gold Award. Competing against 43 of the world’s leading independent schools, the judges said that the magazine “read like National Geographic” and that it “delivers the magazine you would expect [from Aiglon]: a modern and classic design beautifully presented. It is a coffee-table piece.” Coming first was fantastic, but what makes us really happy is receiving praise from you! Thank you for taking the time to write to us with encouragement, memories and suggestions. We love receiving your letters, and value your feedback.
Next year, Aiglon will celebrate its 70th anniversary. More than 300 of you have already registered to return to the mountains, but places are limited so don’t delay your sign-up! Please see your invitation (enclosed) for more details.
Finally, I would like to thank all the alumni and former staff who, over the years, have beautifully documented life at Aiglon. In this issue, our story on snow features images from the Parsons’ archive, and others that we have scanned, often without knowing the original source. Let us know if you recognise the pictures or anyone in them.
Enjoy this issue and I look forward to reading your emails and letters."
