Australian family arriving in Geneva

We are about to jump on a plane for three years in Geneva, arriving on Wednesday. We have a distraught 12 year old daughter who is gutted to be uprooted at this stage of her life so we would love to hook up with some English speaking people with kids around that age.
We like the outdoors, sport and are fairly sociable easy going types. Hoping that someone out there might be interested in some skiing or other trips etc.

PS - Anybody know what the Grand-Saconnex area is like?

Re: Australian family arriving in Geneva

I was in a similar situation to your daughter. I moved with my mother from US to UK at the same age. It is a wrench being taken from your home and there will be tears, but it is also a new adverture. She will make new friends and with the internet she can also stay in touch with the current ones much more easily than I could 40 years ago.

Grand Sac is a nice residential area of Geneva, fairly quiet and as a bonus for your 12year old.. quick access to one of the largest shopping malls in the area.
