During School Activities

These activites take place within the school day and also require after school commitment.

Nature Team (Grades 4-5)

The Nature Team meets on Wednesdays between 12:00 and 13:00 and is open to children in Grades 4 and 5. The students go outside (unless the weather conditions are severe) exploring the natural environment, take a walk to the local woodlands, Merl Park or some other green space around the school. Every school year the Nature Team will do a one day hike and at the end of the school year an overnight camp.

Board game Club (Grade 4-5)

Every Monday from 12:30 to 1:00pm, about 20 students of grade 4 and 5 will meet during lunch time to play board games brought from home or introduced by the teacher, Nora Vermeulin.  For students wishing to join the club, they can meet Madame Vermeulin outside the cafeteria at 12:30pm and the group then go to the French Library L.141 on the 1st floor.

This club is free and students can take part whenever they want.  The club offers students 30 minutes of friendly time where they will learn essential social skills such as focusing on a game, remembering and respecting rules and interacting with people in a positive way.  There is a maximum of 20 places and it is open to grade 4 and 5 students only at the moment.

Yearbook (Grades 6-12)

The aim of the yearbook is to document the school year in a creative and unified way. A team of students from both the Middle and High School will take on that task. There are many different aspects to this publication which each student has to understand. First they learn how to take a good photograph and what text should be collected or written to describe the different events and activities. The yearbook staff utilizes an online software program provided by the publisher that allows students to work on the assignments at school on their own laptops or even from home—no additional software is necessary. Ultimately the students have the opportunity to begin to understand the different aspects of what it takes to create a published document, from the initial creative design process through to the technical software which brings ideas to life. Year Book meets on E days, block 6. Contact Cara Davila: cdavila2@aol.com

 

Model United Nations (Grades 9-12)

For the Model United Nations programme at ISL, students in grades 7 to 12 can attend MUN and government simulation conferences held throughout Europe in cities such as Paris, Madrid, Budapest, Copenhagen, London, Prague, and Istanbul. To serve as a delegate to these conferences, students attend lunchtime meetings, research their assigned country and topics, and create position papers, speeches and resolutions for use at the conference. In addition to conferences, high school students may choose to attend an MUN class during the CAS period to prepare for the conference. Interested students should contact Ms. Melanie Northrop (mnorthrop@islux.lu), ISL’s MUN Advisor.

The Business Club (Grade 9-12)

The Business Club is open to all students in the High School and will help student members decide whether a career in Business and Management or Investment Management is right for them. The club exposes student members to mentorship and networking opportunities with outside business owners and hereby build relationships between ISL students and the entrepreneurial and business community in Luxembourg. The ISL Business Club will engage in a range of activities. Meetings are Tuesday and Thursday during lunch-time in Dr. Mulli's room 128 in the Upper School. Contact Mr James Mulli for further information: jmulli@islux.lu

High School Student Council (Grades 9-12)

The ISL high school student council runs as a leadership training and activity class. Leadership development will focus on: effective communication; problem solving; conflict management; team building; self-confidence & self-esteem development and decision making. Throughout the year, dependent on input from advisory groups, the council will also discuss, present and make recommendations for school-wide concerns and practices. Additionally, student council representatives and students from the broader ISL student body will be encouraged to plan, implement and evaluate a range of student activities which promote topics and events integral to the school community. Contact Annette Schweifler or Elizabeth Cutshall for further information: aschweifler@islux.lu or ecutshall@islux.lu

Global Issues Group (Grades 9-12)

We are US students at ISL working to promote awareness of global issues and meet once a week at lunch to discuss/learn & volunteer outside of school hours. We organise guest speakers for the Global Issues students and school assemblies, and participate in international conferences and efforts based around global issues. We also work to fundraise for various school charities, such as Red Cross & Femmes en Detresse (a woman’s shelter in Luxembourg), through collecting & selling/disseminating good-condition goods at ISL & within our community (recycling) and organising collections for emergency disaster response in consultation with Red Cross. We meet Tuesday at lunch in room 132.

Junior Library Assistants Club

This club is open to all students in grades 3-5 at lunchtime.  Students work through a series of set skills to obtain a certificate of achievement at four different levels. After obtaining their first certificate they also receive a permanent recess library pass so that they can work towards their other certificates without the restriction of the class library pass system.  

Please contact Barbara O’Brien by email at bobrien@islux.lu for more information.
