A unique and highly adventurous experience in the Swiss Alps.

In July 2015, Nord Anglia Education arranged The Alpine Expedition in the Swiss Alps. Schools from around the worlds were given the opportunity to send students and teachers to participate, and four of our Dover Court students began the process of training for this amazing opportunity.

Richard Lim (DCIS Trip Coordinator) offers this reflection on the trip:

'It was indeed an amazing, once-in-a-life time experience for everyone. It was not at all easy, as we were faced with icy conditions that many of us had not been exposed to before. Our resolve was tested during challenges such as glacier trekking, climbing ice caves, waking up at 3am for the summit climb and doing the Via Ferrata.

Despite the obstacles, we gritted our teeth and successfully reached the summit of 3 peaks, one of which is the renowned Pigne d’Arolla (3700m).The Alpine Expedition in the Swiss Alps was indeed an amazing, once in a-life time experience for everyone. It was not at all easy, as we were faced with icy conditions that many of us had not been exposed to before.

The three months of intensive and rigorous conditioning and endurance training had indeed paid off too.  Students from Dover Court School did remarkably well throughout the expedition. They showed great motivation, resilience and very positive attitude.

The beautiful and serene Moligon campsite in the valley, as well as the Moiry and Dix Huts provided perfect staging areas for our climbs and were great places to return to for rest and relaxation after a day of hard climbing. The Alps provided the perfect backdrop for great selfie shots!'
