Resilience and building strong relationships – it’s what Aiglon is all about.
As I write this, our graduates are packing up for the last time. The Class of 2021 have had a tough final year, but I am immensely proud of them. They have learnt a lot about resilience, hard work and maintaining positivity about the future, even when that future is uncertain. They have dug deep and I am optimistic that, despite the challenges and setbacks they have faced, there is enormous hope for their future and the opportunities awaiting them.
I am comforted to know that, whatever the future holds, they will continue to be supported by the relationships they have built at Aiglon, a theme that runs through this issue.
On page 16, we explore extraordinary friendships that cross vast cultural and geographic divides – friendships that broaden horizons and open worlds for so many Aiglonians. On page 24, we spotlight Aiglon’s tutors, who play such a vital and varied role in the lives of their students, and on page 30 we examine the relationship Aiglonians have with the natural world – in this case, as seen through the eyes of our many equestrians.
I hope you enjoy this issue – and we look forward to your letters and, in due course, to welcoming you back to the mountain.
