Parents

Friendly, welcoming, positive, ENgaged

Fundamental to the ongoing success and happiness of our school community are the positive partnerships that exists between all of our stakeholder groups.

ISZL actively encourages parental involvement and participation in all areas of school life. To support this, we host a number of community events, from small to large, that bring parents together to celebrate the community and highlight the successes of our individual and collective efforts.

Our Parents' Association (PA) dedicates itself to ensuring that every member of our community feels welcomed and has the opportunity to get involved and join the fun! Their wide range of social activities include Hiking, Skiing, Running, Tennis, Choir, Pudding Club and Coffee Corner. Additionally, the Sports Booster Club, Parents Advisory Committee (PAC) and the ISZL Cultural Committees, all offer meaningful ways in which you can make a positive difference to your child's school education.

We also provide parents with learning opportunities to help them understand and participate in their child’s education in a meaningful and informed way.

Voices from our Parents

The Pohlen Family
  • Parent

Our family, the Pohlens, has been part of the ISZL community since 2012 and we still have three kids at school: Nicola in Grade 6, Louisa in Grade 8 and Martin in Grade 11. Our eldest daughter Clara graduated from ISZL in 2018. We are German, but our kids were taught in England and started their education there. As a family, we enjoy doing sports together, and our favourite is skiing in the beautiful Swiss Alps. We also play tennis and badminton as well as swim, run and hike together.

The Smit Family

Before the first day of school, we had a couple of days to adapt and the children were so excited. We really appreciated the new student orientation that ISZL hosts. Before the start of school, our children had the chance to meet with their teachers, tour around the school, meet other new students and learn about school life and the everyday routines. For parents, the orientation was a great way to connect with the school leadership, faculty and staff as well to wander around at the information fair for all kinds of support. After that first day, we knew we had made the right choice.
