Homeroom and class teachers will be holding signs for their year group. Parents/legal guardians and students will accompany teachers to the classrooms where they'll spend about 15 minutes together.
At 9:00am, we ask all parents/legal guardians to come to the auditorium for the annual first day presentation (students will remain with their teachers). The main presentation will take just 20 minutes.
At 9:20am, secondary and high school families will be invited upstairs to meet the teachers and see the new and old spaces.
Primary and kindergarten families will stay in the auditorium for a presentation on the IB Primary Years Programme.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
The ISB team
I am very proud to announce that as of 19th of June ISB is a Primary Years Program (PYP) candidate school with the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IB).
This will allow us to continue our work developing a primary and kindergarten curriculum that will offer the best education by building on the expertise we have as a school and combining it with the PYP.
The Primary years Programmme is a highly innovative and inquiry-led program, that challenges students to think creatively and critically, take responsibility for their learning and explore local and global issues in real-life contexts. It matches completely with the mission, values and teaching style of ISB.
All year, our team has been working very hard towards achieving this goal.
On behalf of the entire primary team, thank you for a fantastic year of working together and helping our students grow. We are very excited to continuing that in 2018/2019.
We are proud to announce the patronage of Brno Mayor Mr. Petr Vokřál of Colours and Flavours of ISB Festival which will take place on 26th of May at ISB. What an honor!

We are very proud to announce that the International School of Brno is now accredited with the Council of International Schools. We would like to congratulate the entire school for the hard work and commitment to this achievement. Special thanks and congratulations to Mr. Menon.
Working towards CIS accreditation has been a valuable experience for ISB. We now enter a new phase of the accreditation cycle in which the school will plan for further development and report to CIS on our progress.
You are cordially invited to the ISB Summer Production - The Factory, 21st of June at ISB.
There will be two performances:
The Chocolate Factory looms large over the city, a place of magic, mystery and intrigue. No-one has ever been spotted going in or out of the factory. Its owner, Factory Man, has never been seen and remains an elusive figure. Yet all of that is about to change...
Looking for his successor, Factory Man invites seven children to the factory to compete in The Grand Choc-Off, a series of tasks designed to test the candidates' pluck, tenacity and character, and determine who will be the future of the factory.
Who will triumph? Who will succumb to the pressure? Will the secrets of Factory Man ever be revealed? Come with us on this journey and discover the magical world of The Factory.
You may have noticed that ISB is hosting special visitors this week - these are the members of the Council of International School. Yesterday they also met with the representatives of both primary and secondary councils.
We are thrilled to announce that on Friday, May 19th, ISB is hosting an international football tournament for our primary students.
Students will be playing againts children from international schools of Bratislava and Ostrava. Your child can either play (years 2 to 6) or cheer on the ISB team. Please click here to see more details. We will be happy to see you around!
