Dear Parents,

It has been another fantastic week at ISY. We have really settled into the school year and we look forward to sharing with you all the wonderful things that are happening in our classrooms over the coming weeks.

Thank you as always for being such a wonderful community of parents, your support is always appreciated.

Have a great weekend.

Over the summer we brightened up our student bathrooms by having quotes put on the bathroom doors. 


Our new international orders have all arrived.

The student’s are having fun with the new blue blocks.


Congratulations to ISY Nay Pyi Taw for their opening on Tuesday.


Our new furniture, as part of our furniture replacement cycle, has arrived for Grade 5.
The final items were the new chairs which have been specially designed to offer support and comfort to our students during their busy school day.


Our early years environments are looking fantastic. How wonderful for our students to be able to experience such amazing spaces each day.

The teachers enjoyed the Compassion Conference on Friday. They were able to learn not only new ideas but be inspired by our keynote speaker, Wilma Derksen. I hope that many of you were also able to attend Wilma’s parent talk this week.
