Welcome To Our New School Year

After a rejuvenating summer the staff and faculty of AISZ are excitedly waiting for our students to arrive on Monday 21st. On Friday we welcomed our new families and had our chance to share the work we do at the school. We had a number of our returning students also helping the new students to settle in which was very much appreciated.

Over the summer period we selected a construction company who will commence the building of our new campus in the next couple of weeks, and if all goes to plan this time next year we will be welcoming you all to our new school campus.

We have a number of new courses on offer through out our school this year. In the Lower School, from grades 3-5 we will be introducing computer coding and Croatian language for non Croatian speakers. Both these new learning experiences will be of huge benefit to our students. In the Upper School we have added Design in the form of Electrical and Material (woodwork). Our Design Lab is on the bottom floor near the Cafeteria. I am positive that this will be of immense interest to all our students.

The new teachers joining our school are listed below and their profiles can be found on the Staff Profile page of the website.
