Welcome to Issue 13 of the Aiglon Magazine for the Winter/Spring 2020. We hope you enjoy reading all about Aiglon and its international community.
Letter from the Editor
This summer, over one long, hot weekend in June, we were treated to a thrilling sight: more than 700 Aiglonians, of all generations and alongside friends and family, gathered on the mountain to celebrate our school’s 70th anniversary. What did we get up to? Campus tours, reunions, meditation, expedition (of course!)… and much, much more. Read all about it in Seventy Things, the souvenir you’ll find enclosed in your magazine pack —and online in January!
Of course, many of you have forged strong bonds of friendship at Aiglon – bonds that can, and often do, endure a lifetime. On page 28, you tell us what makes your friendships so special. Elsewhere, on page 34, we meet the team responsible for preparing the ski slopes that are such a feature of Aiglon life.
And finally, as Aiglonians of all ages will tell you, there is nothing quite like the excitement of receiving a parcel or package from home. On page 16, we hear first-hand from students about the joy of post – and the sometimes unusual things they have received.
I hope you enjoy this issue and I look forward to hearing your thoughts, memories and anecdotes, whether by electronic or actual mail!
