PARENT INVOLVEMENT

Our unique Parent Ambassador Programme is designed to help parents understand the learning journey of their students at ISB. The Parent Ambassador role is a personal commitment to promote and represent International School of Bergamo whilst learning more about ISB and the educational path that parents have chosen for their children. Parent Ambassadors are strong advocates and positive parents supporting the mission of the school. They engage with current parents, prospective parents & students and the wider community in promoting the International School of Bergamo.

Parents are invited to attend student-led conferences where the children present their year's work. Student-led conferences give a valuable insight on the learning process. This make the academic activities more transparent and understandable and give a better idea as to what the children are learning at school.

The school organises presentations and conferences on educational issues. Parents are invited to attend and share the school philosophy and programme.

International Day demonstrates the wonderful diversity of nationalities that exists at ISBergamo. Parents and families are invited in school to participate in games and activities with their children.

Parents are invited throughout the year to take part in open lessons with class teachers and specialists.

Twice a year, parents are invited to discuss their children's progress with the class teachers. These may take the form of three-way conferences where considered appropriate.

Testimonial Quote

I love this school for the diversity- the fact that people from different backgrounds can integrate so well with each other.
I also love the fact that as soon as I arrived, I felt extremely comfortable here around the students and teachers, like I could be myself with no judgment. I enjoy the school so much that I dread the end of the day, and on weekends I look forward to Mondays.
There is no school I would rather attend than this one.

THE T.U.R.N.I.P. PROGRAMME

 

The T.U.R.N.I.P. (Towards Understanding the Right Nutritional Implications and Practises) Food Project has the aim of introducing the correct nutritional practises in the every day diet of children and families.

Several scientific studies have proved that incorrect nutritional habits account for 30% of Cancer cases as well as numerous other pathologies (cardiovascular, metabolic, etc.). Healthy eating should therefore play a very important role in children’s education.

Unfortunately, the correct nutritional practises are not always known.

Building on the recommendations of the WCRF (World Cancer Research Fund International – www.wcrf.org), our school project aims at proposing a series of activities which will involve both parents and children.

Started in 2011 the Turnip Game represents the core element of the programme, but the project also includes conferences, kitchen lessons as well as a continuous update of the website with videos, fact sheets, and useful tips for the implementation of a healthy diet.

The TURNIP Game

The TURNIP Game has been developed with the aim of making the Food Project child friendly. Through the game, families are encouraged to cook different vegetables for their children.
Thanks to the “vegetable points” and seasonal awards, children are stimulated to try the vegetables and learn more about them.
