On Saturday 12th March our school community came together for our annual International Festival, and what a great event it was! The children proudly wore costumes from their home countries, then danced and sang songs in different languages from all around the world. We then enjoyed the many flavours and colours in the delicious food prepared by all the parents. Thank-you to our fantastic Parent's Association and all of our school community for your time and effort - what a lovely celebration of the cultural diversity we have at ISG! Click here to see more!
Building work continues to progress very well at our new school building at 258 De Pintelaan. Internal works including cabling, ventilation and insulation have started and the external brickwork is also nearly complete. Work on replacing the roof of the sports hall has begun and plans are well underway for the internal fittings and furniture. We are looking forward to moving in during the summer to start the new school year on September 1st!
As part of the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) we focus on three types of learning - Knowledge, Skills and Understanding. Knowledge refers to factual information, Skills refers to things we are able to do and Understanding is the steady incorporation of ideas and concepts. In the January newsletter from Fieldwork Education they acknowledged how at ISG we are developing these ideas with our children. Have a read here.
The construction of our new school building is coming along extremely well. The spaces are all coming together and we can really see what a great learning facility it will be. Come have a look!
Here at ISG we welcomed in the festive season singing and dancing together! Each class performed an item and then as a whole school we sang a song and had a boogie to the Jump Jam routine Santa Claus is coming to town. From all of us at ISG we wish you a Merry Christmas and our best wishes for 2016!
Fieldwork Education, the creative minds behind the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), have recognised ISG for our clear focus on improving children's learning. Involving children in discussions about how they are learning and how they can improve their learning are one of the many ways we ensure our pupils are busy learning, not just busy doing!
