Mother tongue language day

This Friday was mother tongue language day here at the ISB. It was a huge success and very much enjoyed by all who took part. There were workshops in Greek, Turkish, Chinese, Dutch, Hungarian, French and Spanish. The children found out about each language and enjoyed fun activities. A big thank you to our class parent Rita who ran the Hungarian workshop, she worked so hard and it was very appreciated 😊

Each child had to bring their passport and check in at the check in desk.

They were then issued with unique boarding passes and made their way to the  security scanners.

If their baggage fitted through the scanners they could then make their way to the departure lounge to await their call to gate, ready to board the plane. The pre boarders were called first, then the rest of the passengers.

Our flight is ready to go!

Mrs Schelten then went through all the security checks and safety announcements. It was a wonderful experience and really brought our IPC topic to life. Thank you flight attendendant Schelten!

Plea for junk materials

Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a wonderful and restful holiday. 

Over the next couple of weeks the children will be designing and making model vehicles. We need junk materials to do this, for example, egg boxes, clean milk bottles, cereal boxes and other small boxes. If you have any of these things please send them in with your children.

Thanks in advance

Karen Hagenaars
