On November 10th, 2016 the president of the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA), Dr. Remo Gysin and his wife Doris Gysin visited RIS Swiss Section – Deutschsprachige Schule Bangkok in company with the Executive Director of the Swiss-Thai Chamber of Commerce (STCC), Mr. Thomas Gerber. After a short meeting with the school leadership team, the guests were taken on a tour through the campus. During the tour, the guests visited several classrooms and experienced the school life first-hand. Dr. Gysin was seemingly surprised about the atmosphere and said: “This is the school I wished I went to when I was young. We were impressed of the warm welcome, the friendly atmosphere, the insight in different parts of the school life, the creative displays by the Matura Alumni and the open discussions and conversations with different members of the school community.” Dr. Remo Gysin highlighted the importance of our school for Switzerland. After the visit of the classrooms the high-ranking guests had the chance to interact with teachers and enjoyed the delicious food during a brief networking luncheon. Here the teachers had a chance to get to know Dr. Gysin and to learn about the latest developments in Swiss politics and its effects on life abroad.
