This year the Post-Bac-Orientation meeting was held on Saturday, January 18th, a little too late to have alumni join us for their testimonies because they had already returned to their universities. An audience of over 70 SIA students and their parents was nevertheless presented with 4 slideshows on Europe, UK, USA and France by Mrs Rostaing, Mr Boardman, Mrs Janin (Parent) and Mrs Perraud.
