Celebrating our multilingual community

  • 14th September 2018

ISB community is a multicultural and multilingual community.

We are proud to have students, families and staff coming from different countries and speaking lots of different languages.

This helps our students to become internationally minded citizens who are open-minded and accept and respects other cultures and beliefs. As we become more aware that the world is much larger than the community in which we live in as we explore global and local values through inquiry and discussions.

There over 30 nationalities and 35 languages spoken by the entire school community – Portuguese, Mandarin, Russian, French are just some examples.

As a school, we understand the importance of celebrating our community. Therefore, we promote international-mindedness every day in class through various activities and inquiry.

We also celebrate our diverse community as a whole throughout the school year with numerous projects and events such as mother tongue day in February and International Day.
