SHMS' Leisure Managers organise a wide range of sports and leisure activities as well as excursions and professional visits.
Sports, social activities and excursions provide an important balance to academic study. Many of these events are fully or partly funded by SHMS. School sports teams are also organised each term. These recreational activities allow students not only to get to know Switzerland better but also to relax and enjoy their stay while they study hospitality management
