The association was founded in 1992 by a group of parents and health professionals to improve the well-being of hospitalized children.


It created an animation space: The Sparadrap

Supervised by qualified educators, it offers recreational and educational support to hospitalized children and their families. In addition, it promotes the link between children, parents, doctors and caregivers.

The Sparadrap facilitates the stay of children and adolescents in the pediatric services of the Riviera-Chablais Hospital, on the Aigle and Samaritan sites in Vevey.

Its funding is provided through donations and support from the Hospital Chablais-Riviera and Commons.

La Garenne International School welcomes children between the ages of 5 (Year 1 / Kindergarten) and 16 (Year 11 / Grade 10) of more than 35 nationalities from around the world. As of September 2020 our seniors will get a new home in the newly renovated building of Senior School Le Roc located in Villars. The new location will allow us to create a cutting edge education facility to nurture talents of each student, meeting their individual needs.

We pride ourselves on our English-French bilingual approach, giving students expertise in two languages. Students follow the official English national curriculum, in parallel with developing a mastery of the French language. Academic excellence, a warm international family ambience in which diversity is welcomed, and a safe location in exceptional surroundings, are our core values.
