Another successful 4-Day Hike!

As they do every fall, Ecole students with MitarbeiterInnen left campus for the “4-day hike.” This year we had seven hike groups spread across the Bernese Oberland, hiking as many as 60km with 300m to 1000m elevation gain per day. Most groups stayed in tents while a couple were in huts, and all prepared their meals outside on cook stoves or over open fires. In addition, the Mountaineering group explored the area between Gstaad and Sion, including the Wildhorn at 3248m. Finally the Mountain Biking group rode near Einsiedeln in Canton Schwyz. As the weary but triumphant hikers, bikers and climbers returned, we seized the opportunity to interview Tom Sampson, our Outdoor Manager.

In one of the first Family Meetings and in the Opening School Assembly, we talked about “living together”. What does “living together at the Ecole” mean to you? Read here a few of the thoughts we heard!
