On Friday 20th November our school community had a fun evening together! First of all the children were suprised to see a bouncy castle, games, parachute, bikes and toys set up when they finished school. ISG won an afternoon of fun with Free-Time after collecting old toys to donate to children in need. Afterwards we had our annual family fun Bingo night! The children were so happy to get together, have fun and try to win some prizes! A big thank-you to our fantastic Parents' Association for organising the event, to ING for sponsoring us and to Dominos for giving us a great deal for the pizzas!
Construction of our new school building is well underway and on track to open in September 2016. Located at De Pintelaan 258, it will have the capacity for 150 pupils, with great facilities which include a sports hall, library, multi-purpose rooms, a covered outside play space and green areas.
Construction of our fantastic new school building has officially started! On Monday 5th October the founding members of ISG, with the help from several ISG pupils, laid the first stone and buried a time capsule on the building site on De Pintelaan. It was a lovely event to mark this exciting new chapter for ISG. Read more , here, here and here
We have had a lovely start to the 2015-2016 school year! Returning pupils were excited to come back to school to see their friends and teachers and talk about their summer holidays. We are happy to welcome 21 new pupils to our school community! A warm welcome to Miss Rebecca, from Ireland, who is our new middle primary teacher. ISG is truly an International School with children from more than 35 different Nationalities. After a week at school all the children are starting to learn classroom routines and are getting to know each other.
On May 29th we held our annual International Festival. It was a fantastic celebration of the cultural diversity we love here at ISG - we have children and staff representing more than 30 nationalities! It was lovely to see the children so proudly wearing their National costume, singing to all the parents while waving their flag and sharing their country's food so lovingly prepared by their parents. Thank-you to our amazing Parent's Association and the school community who made the event possible. Have a look at a video here!
Last week the pupils enjoyed an interactive music show by performer Stephen Baron. The Pre-Primary show was based on the story Barbar the elephant, while the Primary show was based on the music of Haydn. Both shows used many colourful props, included amazing piano playing by Stephen himself and were very entertaining. We also received this lovely feedback from Stephen following his performance: "What a lovely bunch of enthusiastic children, responsive, inquisitive, good listeners, helpful and exuberant - as happy children always are! Hats off to the teachers!". Thank-you Stephen! Parents can see more photos of the performances in the photo gallery.
