Supporting new Families
We were greeted so warmly from everyone, we felt immediately at home.
Family S. (Turkey/Germany)
New families and students are warmly welcomed into our ISR Community. Parents will be introduced to the Welcoming Committee and be given helpful information. You may also be introduced to other people from your home country who may offer language and adjustment assistance. The bilingual/multilingual school environment at ISR means that many families speak some English or German, as well as many other languages at various levels, which creates an inviting atmosphere to speak the language you are most comfortable with.
The Welcome Committee is an informal group of parent volunteers who welcome new families, arrange weekly coffee mornings, international breakfasts and casual meet-ups. It is fun to meet new parents from around the world and take part in cross-cultural exchanges. We encourage you to join our gatherings!
Friday Morning Coffee Meet-Up
All parents are also highly encouraged to get involved with our Parent Network Class Representatives. It is a great way to meet people and feel at home at ISR.
