International Festival 2017

On Saturday 25th March the ISG school community came together to celebrate all the nationalities, colours and flavours from around the world. Children performed dances, songs, played instruments and recited poetry. We then enjoyed amazing food prepared by the parents and the great atmosphere. Thank you to the parents and staff who helped make the event such a success.

Our Grand Opening.

On Friday 9th September, 2016, we celebrated the official opening of our new school building. The event was a big success with representatives from companies from East and West Flanders, important stakeholders and of course friends and families from our local and school community. A warm sunny evening, children performing, live jazz and Belgian fries - the perfect way to celebrate this exciting next chapter for ISG!

Our amazing new school!

On the 1st of September, 2016, we opened the doors to our brand new school building. With large classrooms, a sports hall, music and language rooms, performance area and plenty of outside space for playing, we are excited to be able to call this our permanent home in Ghent. The investment in this modern learning facility reflects the success of ISG since opening in 2012 and the importance of having an International School serving East and West Flanders. Call us if you would like to come and visit!

Our new school is nearly finished!

School is out for summer, and ISG is on the move! Our amazing new school building at 258 De Pintelaan is in the finishing stages. We have packed up and we'll be moving in during the summer to start the new school year in September. We are all very excited about this next chapter for ISG!

Music classes

Every class at ISG enjoys one hour of music a week with our specialised music teacher Miss Narissa. Trained in the Kodaly method Narissa's classes develop children's music literacy using songs, hand signs, pictures, rhythm symbols and syllables. Singing is the foundation of the music classes and also incorporates games, movement, playing instruments and reading and writing. All the children love music class each week!
