50th anniversary of the Collège Champittet Alumni Association

On Saturday, 15th November 2014 our school hosted a special event: the 50th anniversary of the Alumni Association. On this occasion the sports hall was transformed by our Facility Director and his team into a sumptuous venue. There was a great atmosphere; you could see emotion and happiness in people’s faces as they saw an old friend again, a former teacher, a former classmate or colleague!

Our boarding students had an important role to play that day as they looked after groups of alumni who had signed up to visit of the campus. The students showed them their cosy rooms in the boarding house and took them to various workshops which had been organised for the occasion, enabling visitors to be back on the school’s benches. In the chapel, the visitors were welcomed by Father Charles and then treated to a mini organ concert by Masayuki Kono. In the juniors’ building, Kirsten, an IB student, demonstrated the art of origami with a quick lesson in how to create a paper dolphin, the school’s symbol. In the Saint Bernard building, Renato Zappa and Gilles Page supervised visitors as they underwent a spelling test and, in the science building, the physics teacher, Omar Fattah, amazed his audience by conducting some crazy experiments!

After the annual general meeting of the Association, over 300 people attended the evening reception. Most of them were from the French-speaking part of Switzerland, some from Zurich, Berne, Basel, Ticino and some alumni came from abroad such as from Paris, Besançon, London, Düsseldorf and even Tehran. Alumni of all ages, former teachers and current teachers caught up and shared memories. It was a night full of joy and emotion!
