28th August 2020: Parents' Orientation Evening and General Assembly
On Wednesday 26 August, we hosted our Parents' Orientation Evening followed by the annual General Assembly. The events were well-attended and there was a typically warm and friendly ISIB atmosphere. Conversations between parents and teachers flowed freely, as did the hand sanitizer! Parents were able to learn more about what their children are studying in different subjects and across the age range. A highlight was the presentation on the Year 11 Programme, featuring a professional short film made with last year's Year 11 students, and some artefacts of the leather-making workshop that some of the Year 11s took part in last year. At the General Assembly, we heard from the Chair of the Board, Mr Kurt Møller Petersen, who gave an account of the previous school year; Mr Tom Wilde, the new Head of School, who outlined the vision for the school for the coming year and beyond; and Mr Karsten Rasmussen, who briefed parents on the school's sound financial position. ISIB is in a strong position to weather the ongoing challenges of Covid-19, and to emerge stronger and better than ever before in the years to come.
