School trip to Switzerland probably 1965 taken from a newspaper cutting in the Thurrock Gazette. I think we were on our way to Interlaken.

Yes this was a holiday to Chateau-de-Oxe, what lovley memories have come to mind, on our arrival in Switzerland, I remember the accommodation at a hostel was not up to Mr.Preece (the headmaster) expectations and we only stayed there for one night, and moved onto a lovley hotel, looked like a chocolate box image. OH HAPPY DAYS

Thats right it was Chateau-de-Oxe I remember it now the hostel was horrid so we moved to a hotel and if my memory serves me well it had a crazy golf course in town which we could use free of charge.I also went the following year (1965) which was to Interlaken Oh Happy Days indeed

What a great time it was, myself and the late John Coussins would walk to the hostel after we moved to the hotel to collect the mail. Do you remember the fancy dress near the end of the trip. I have some photos will post on here soon
