Celebrating Aiglon's 70th Anniversary
Aiglon College, in conjunction with the Alumni Eagle Association and Friends of Aiglon College are pleased to announce a weekend celebration to honour the School's 70th Anniversary. We would like to extend our warmest invitation to all in the wider Aiglon community to join us for this exciting and memorable weekend. You will be able to find all the details for upcoming events on this page.
Statement on INCREASED Capacity
Tuesday, 12 February 2019
After publishing a statement last week in response to the exciting and unprecedented response from our global community’s desire to attend the events celebrating Aiglon’s 70th anniversary, we are pleased to announce an increase in capacity for Saturday’s gala event and Sunday’s brunch.
Following discussions with our providers, we have decided upon a change of format for Saturday evening from a seated dinner to a cocktail dînatoire style meal that allows for increased capacity and enables us to re-open registration for additional guests. For Sunday, we will be working with a second restaurant in order to open another venue in the hopes to accommodate all of our guests.
Please do note that even as we can now accommodate more guests and re-open registration, there will remain a definitive number of available places for Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. These limitations are dictated by the availability of physical space in our venues.
Should a waiting list again become necessary, guests will be able to contact the Advancement Office to put their names on the list in case of cancellations. We do however still encourage everyone to register for the weekend, even if some of the events become full.
This will be the largest event in the history of the school, and we are excited so many people hope to join us. We will ensure alumni are given the opportunity to contact one another and arrange alternative plans together if indeed there is a waiting list.
We, of course, apologise for any inconvenience, but we hope that our community understands the many logistical considerations involved in this weekend for our small village. Aiglon’s staff and alumni committees are working hard to ensure this is an event open and welcome to all, and one that will be remembered for many years to come!
Programme of Events
Registration & Campus Tours
The festivities begin! Arrive in time to register, receive your welcome pack and further information for the weekend. Then, join us for a tour of Aiglon's campus. Whether it has been one year or fifty, a lot has changed -- and stayed the same.
Did you know Aiglon today owns and operates over 30 different buildings as part of our village campus?
That's a big difference from the original Chantecler in 1949!
Welcome Drinks & Barbecue
In case you've missed it, prepare yourself for some traditional Swiss music, and a lot of cheese! Our welcome barbecue will feature a selection of Swiss-themed items, and of course local wines! We hope you can join us for a slow summer evening overlooking our beautiful alpine campus.
Following dinner, after you've met up with all your friends, you can go out to some of your favourite "forbidden" Villars locations, but just remember, it's a full day tomorrow!
Times are subject to change.
