Friends Of Bluche and Its Reunions
This is the unofficial website of the original international boarding school, Ecole Des Roches, and Pres Fleuris, in Bluche-sur-Sierre, Valias, Switzerland.
If you attended LR/PF (it doesn’t matter if you graduated from the school, most of us did not), you may want to register your name so that this web site can help you keep in touch with old classmates and inform you of future reunions. If you did not attend that school, or attended it when it was a hotel management school, then not much of this web site will interest you, but you’re welcome to browse through it. However, you will not be able to register as an alumnus. To register your name at this web site, click on Membership and Sign Up.
