A number of Switzerland-based post-primary institutions will visit Lagos in November for consultation with parents who are interested in enrolling their wards in Swiss Boarding Schools.
This was disclosed in a statement by issued by Director of Swiss Learning, Christophe Clivaz, in collaboration with its consulting firm, Mark Brooks Education, obtained on Saturday.
While disclosing that the event will have Consul General of Switzerland in Lagos, Thomas Schneider, in attendance, Clivaz said the programme would take place at The Wheatbaker Hotel in Ikoyi.
It is an honour for us to be able to visit Nigeria to present our schools. Our institutions welcome students from five continents without any dominant nationalities. The presence of more excellent students from your magnificent country is one of our priorities,” adds Mr Clivaz.
The statement said, “This is an outstanding opportunity to meet senior leaders from the most prestigious boarding schools in Switzerland. Students can study a range of programmes such as the International Baccalaureate, American High School Diploma, AP Advanced Placement, A Levels, IGCSE for as short as a term, summer or an academic year or more.”
On his part, Schneider noted that, “In a constantly changing and globalised world, Switzerland offers schools where children can flourish in a safe, multicultural and multilingual environment. The lifelong connections they make during their stay will be the foundations to join a long-term network of emerging leaders.”
Schools taking part in the event include Aiglon College, Brillantmont International School, Collège Beau Soleil, Collège du Léman, Institut auf dem Rosenberg, John F. Kennedy International School, La Garenne International School, and TASIS.
