We are very excited to begin planning for 2019 United Nations Day.
Thursday 24th October ISC will hold a Celebration of Nations at the school.
It will begin with a Whole school assembly, followed by Flag parade, finishing up with a Taste of Nations.
For planning purposes we need to know how many countries will be represented.
Please contact (Libby +39 333.2160242) as soon as you can and let me know your country, we then ask you to form a “country group” and plan your country table. It would be ideal to have one Point of Contact for each country.

The school is a strictly *NUT* free environment.
We ask you to prepare small portions (it’s just a taste) prepare a variety of items (not all sweets and sugar) and use NO disposable plastic items.
It would add to the atmosphere if both you and your children dress in national dress/colours.
We are really looking forward to a magical morning!



ISC participates in an Esselunga promotion for schools. Amici di Scuola is an important project that is giving Early Years, Elementary and Middle Schools the opportunity to receive ICT devices and didactical resources free of charge. By presenting your Esselunga “Carta Fìdaty” (Fedelity Card) at the checkout, you will receive an “Amici di Scuola” voucher for every € 25 worth of shopping and/or 50 “punti fragola”.
Helping our school is easy! All you have to do is to go shopping at Esselunga until November 13th and bring your vouchers to school. The school will have the possibility to choose the materials and devices from a specific catalogue.
