If you haven't provided the school with your child(ren)'s health history, please complete the Health History section of the new AISZ Application Form (section S) for your child(ren) and submit it to the medical office. This form provides our school medical officer with important information regarding your child(ren)s health.

Our school medical officer also assists students, parents and staff in obtaining health care in Croatia.

AISZ has a 'nut-free' policy

We are aware that some people can have a very strong allergic reaction to nuts, sometimes even just by touching them. As the safety of our students is our first priority, all meals in our cafeteria are nut-free, and students are encouraged to only bring nut-free snacks into school, even if nobody in their classroom has a nut allergy.
