December 2018

I would like to wish the entire TASIS community a Merry Christmas and a wonderful start to 2019. As I look back at the past year, I am more grateful than ever for the remarkable students who make every day at TASIS a special one, for the caring parents who trust us to bring out the best in their children, for the devoted teachers and dorm parents who are the heart and soul of our community, and for the unstoppable alumni who continue to bring pride to our school with their stunning achievements all over the globe.


It has indeed been a heartwarming holiday season here in Lugano, and I invite you to learn more about the many inspiring celebrations that have taken place over the past month, including the TPA Holiday Market, the All-School Christmas Service, the Middle School Christmas Celebration, the Elementary School Christmas Concert, and a surprise visit from Santa Claus.


Wishing you a joyous holiday season and a splendid new year,


Headmaster Christopher Nikoloff
