Carnival Fun!

A fabulous time was had by all our students, in a wide variety of costumes on Friday 9 February.  ISL celebrated Carnival in full force with games, crafts, painting and delicious pancakes for everyone!  

A Winter Wonderland!

January brought unusually heavy snowfall for Leuven which, of course, meant plenty of fun filled snow play during recess.  The students delighted in snow angel and snowman making as well as the obligatory snowball or two! 

A visit to our neighbours!

Our students were delighted to visit our neighbours, WZC Home Vogelzang to perform a selection of songs from our winter concert, ‘The Nutcracker Suite’. This was a fabulous opportunity for our students and the older generation loved seeing their enthusiasm and talent on full display! What a joyous occasion 🙂
