Welcome to Issue 17 of Aiglon's award-winning magazine. We hope you enjoy this edition. The editor letter is written by Valerie Scullion, Director of Admissions & Marketing.
Our balanced education is the cornerstone of Aiglon life – and it’s great to be back. As I write this, I can see students streaming down from Exeter and Alpina going to the first Faith Group sessions of the year – their excitement at being back on campus is palpable. We began the term with full enrolment, on the back of the Class of 2021 achieving our highest IB average to date, an endorsement of the value of the balanced education that we have to offer.
Sharing stories of childhood is a feature in this issue, including, on page 48, that of Otis, who is just one of 17 students who are children of our alumni. His story, like those of all our alumni families, embodies the Aiglon tradition, passing down the connections and relationships that are established here – and endure.
And in response to recent news, I would like to add my own best wishes to Executive Director Richard McDonald, who will step down in December. The dedication and commitment he has shown to Aiglon over his 18 years’ service is remarkable. Through the years, Richard has continued to uphold the values upon which the school was founded, and has been instrumental in making Aiglon known around the world as a leader in holistic education. Thank you, Richard, and best of luck on your new adventures.
I hope you enjoy this issue and we look forward to hearing from you at [email protected].
