Moving to Montreux

We are about to move to Montreux our kids are ages 16&13 they will go to st George's school. Can anybody tell me:
1. Is there a international women's club in Montreux / Vevey?
2. What's the parents participation / interaction like at the school?
3. What the rate for a cleaner?
4. In general life in Montreux...

Any tips / advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

Hi, welcome to the Riviera :-) wish you a nice time at this beautiful place! We love to live here near Montreux with amazing view over the lake.
Enjoy!!

1. The Riviera Club in Vevey is mostly the wives of Nestlé ex-pats but I don't believe it is exclusively so

2 & 3. I have no kids so need no cleaner

4. Life in Montreux is great and to me its the most beautiful part of the lake. People seem to suggest living in Montreux rather than Vevey because "there is more going on" but apart from the Jazz Festival in July I'm not really convinced its much busier than Vevey. There's a very good level of English spoken here if that's important to you.

The going rate for a house cleaner/housekeeper is between CHF26-30 per hour.
