«Once SAMD, always SAMD.»


Many remain loyal to the SAMD after they have left. Our alumni association organizes meetings and events and supports the SAMD with a high level of commitment.


The SAMDalumni association currently has 500 registered members. They include former pupils, former and current employees, and the school and foundation board of the SAMD.


The Principal of the SAMD, Severin Gerber (Matura 1989), is also the President of the SAMDalumni. Other board members are:

  • Michael Caflisch, Vizepräsident (Matura 1987), Chur
  • Marion Bamert-Hess (Matura 2000), Zürich
  • Lorenz Frey (Berufsmatura 2011), Vaduz
  • Daniel Hofmänner (Matura 2006), Zürich
  • Jöri Mattli (Matura 2001), Davos


If you are interested in SAMDalumni please email us or apply directly (name, address, final year) to alumni(at)samd.ch. The first year of membership is free (annual subscription: CHF 50; for students CHF 20).


The annual general meeting is not only a business event but also a social one. In addition to the statutory compulsory agenda items, current issues are discussed and a specialist address adds a little zest to the evening. The alumni meetings are a welcome opportunity to jointly remember the not infrequent eventful education years in Davos and to cultivate long-standing friendships.
