The Gifts for Kids project has been coordinated by the American Women's Club of Luxembourg since 1996. For many years, ISL has participated in the programme and watched it grow in scope each Christmas season. The idea behind Gifts for Kids is to provide a special gift for approximately 600 underpriveledged children in the Luxembourg community on St. Nicholas Day.
Situated in the heart of Europe, and located in a country known for its foreign enterprise, ISL has a student body with a melange of mother tongues. Our families come from over 40 different nations. They bring a diversity of perspectives, a broad scope of cultural backgrounds, and dozens of different languages to the ISL community.
At the International School of Luxembourg, faculty work alone and in teams to creatively meet the learning needs and pace of each individual student. As ISL Director Chris Bowman recently stated in his presentation to the American Business Association in Luxembourg, "Once size does not fit all, when it comes to education."
What is typically an annual outing for Grade 2 students into Luxembourg City, took a surprise turn on Thursday, November 13 and culminated with a private audience in the Prime Minister's personal office.
On Wednesday, November 12, 2014, the Upper School library premiered several talented young singers in a coffee-shop style performance during the lunch period. Organised by Music teacher, James Libbey, and based on his CASCADE activity entitled "The Voice," the performance was a surprise to students who happened to go into the library during some free time over lunch.
