Very often, the working day begins before the school day, and to help our busy parents, we offer Early Bird Supervision for all PYP aged students from 08.00 – 08.30. Upon arrival at school, students meet the teacher supervising the ‘Early Birds’ in a designated room and then complete some quiet activities or just enjoy an early morning chat in anticipation of the day ahead before meeting their classroom teachers. This option is offered as free additional service and operates from Monday to Friday.
After School Care (ASC) is available for PYP students (Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 5) after the regular school day ends at 3.15pm. Students engage in playful and creative activities, under the watchful supervision of our ASC team and parents are able to sign their children up for ASC at short notice.
A PYP Home Learning Club runs in conjunction After School Care, where PYP students in Grades 2-5 can be supervised whilst completing their Home Learning.
These additional services are chargeable outside of the school fees.
ASC Available 15.15 – 18.00 Monday to Friday
Home Learning Club 15.15 – 16.00 Monday to Thursday
Our CCAs consist of various after school clubs, sports and other activities that are organised by staff members throughout the year. They are planned to compliment and extend the students’ learning by giving them opportunities to work with a variety of teachers, different social and age groups and to do so in diverse settings. ISZN strives to offer a broad range of activities, suitable to different seasons, to ensure several options and experiences are available to each of the age groups. This is also an opportunity for students, teachers and parents to work together in a collaborative setting whilst acquiring knowledge and skills and developing new peer relationships.
All of our CCAs are offered on a first come, first served basis and there is usually a small fee to cover entrance fees, materials and transportation.
