As ISG approaches the end of a third successful school year, we are looking forward to the future! The City of Ghent have recognised the importance of an International school here in the city, serving East and West Flanders, and have recently announced that they will invest €750,000 in our new school building! To cater for our growing numbers, our new school building promises to be a wonderful facility and a great environment and space for all children to learn.

On Wednesday ISG had a coffee morning fundraiser. Following the devastating earthquake in Nepal we all decided that we would like to donate the money raised to helping the aid effort. The pupils were very happy to be able to do something little to help the Nepalese people. When he went home, Aryan also wrote this thoughtful note that he would also like us to send to Nepal. All in all, we raised €204.20. Thank-you to everyone who contributed. Parents can see more photos in the photo gallery.
It was lovely to see all the children so happy and excited to return to school after the Easter break. Today we had our third ISG assembly. The two Headmaster awards were given to Matin and Vedant. They were both recognised for their thoughtfulness and hard-working attitude. Well done! Aryan's name also got pulled out of the Golden box! Aryan was spotted asking a girl who was by herself if she wanted to join in his game. Fantastic Aryan! Last of all, Arshita performed to the whole song. She had practiced a lot and learnt all the lyrics to the song 'Let it go' and she sang it beautifully. Parents can see more photos in the gallery.
What a great way to welcome the Easter holidays! The Easter bunny visited ISG this afternoon and all the pupils were very excited to fill their Easter baskets! Afterwards we all gathered together for a shared snack with music and a lovely little performance from the Pre-Primary pupils. Parents can see more photos in the photo gallery. Enjoy the Easter break everyone!
Today we had our second school assembly. Alice and Gaya received the Headmaster Awards this week - well done! And Avyukth and Riya's names were picked out of the Golden box for being spotted showing ISG's personal values - super! Lower Primary also treated us with a fantastic puppet show!

Today we had a fantastic experience observing a solar eclipse. At first we thought it was going to be too cloudy to see anything, but then the clouds parted and it was amazing! We also celebrated the first day of Spring with bright yellow balloons at break time! Parents can see more photos in the photo gallery.
