Our first event after the summer was Spotlight on Education in Switzerland held in Steinhausen Library, Zug on October 3.
A group of approx. 30 IBN members enjoyed a highly informative event on the Swiss educational system organized by Claudia Schilling in association with Sinergia Êspanol.
Similar events took place in Lausanne and Zurich earlier in the year.
Our guest speakers included Robin Hull, Principal at Hull’s School Zurich and Mary Mayenfisch-Tobin, University Guidance Counsellor, College Champittet, Pully, also the IBN chapter co-lead for the Suisse Romande.
Both speakers explained the Swiss educational system from kindergarten through secondary school and advised on third level options. An engaging Q&A session took place after the presentations, allowing a forum for parents to exchange their own experiences and seek Robin and Mary’s practical tips.
