Dear Parents ……. ISA Results

Coming home tonight with your child are the envelopes containing the results of the ISA (International Schools Assessment) that all Grade 3, 5, 7 & 10 students sit earlier in the year.

You should have received an email from Mr Graeme Scott (Deputy Head of School) with the following information. If not, here is that information below regarding a parent information session being held on Thursday.

If you would like to know more about the ISA assessment, we will be holding a parent information session from 9:00 to 9:45am on Thursday 28th February in MPB3. During this session, we will provide you with some background information relating to this specific type of assessment, discussing what information it provides us with (and what it doesn’t) and how to interpret the scores. We will not be discussing individual student scores during the meeting but we are very happy to send you in the right direction if you wish to clarify anything about your own child’s results.


If you are interested in attending, please join us in the MPB3 near to the Middle School office from 9:00 to 9:45 on Thursday 28th February.

Dear Parents ….

We will be leaving ISB at 8:00 a.m. by bus and returning to ISB just after 12:00.

The students should wear their ISB uniform either the polo shirts or their PE clothes. They should have comfortable shoes and shorts for walking in. A packed snack and lunch, as well as a drink will be provided.

Children do not need to bring money.  They may bring a camera, but must be responsible for it.

Please return the permission slip below to your child’s classroom by Wednesday, the 13th of  February.

If you would like to be considered for parent-help on this trip (responsible for a group of students and traveling on the bus with us to and from the Snake Farm) please let me know via email, of your interest and availability.  Seats and numbers are limited.
