Le Châtelard

Switzerland

RECOMMENDED CLOTHING

High School Annual Course 2016-2017

General notes

 

1. We highly recommend that our students do not bring more clothes than the ones listed, since they usually like to buy them here, as they are more adapted to the Swiss climate. Please be aware that your daughter’s wardrobe will be checked upon arrival.

2. During their stay at Le Châtelard our students are expected to dress in a refined way, always taking into consideration the styles and customs of European etiquette. 

3. The clothes should fit your daughter in an elegant way: not too closely fitting nor too large. It is recommendable to buy them a little bit bigger since dryers usually make them shrink a little and your daughter may still be developing physically.

 

Laundry number

In order to have a more efficient laundry service, each student’s clothes should be marked with a laundry number. Your daughter’s number will be sent once she is accepted. Please bring extra labels for clothes bought while in Europe.
