Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The safety and security of our community is our top priority. We continue to assess the global situation regarding the Coronavirus on a daily basis. We are in contact with other international schools and follow a best practice protocol.

ICS Transitions Successfully to Learning@Home 


The ICS priority of providing continuity to our students’ learning resulted in a successful transition to the Learning@Home platform on Wednesday 18 March.

We wish our students every success with Learning@Home, and at the same time we look forward to being able to transition back to Learning@School as soon as the situation permits us to do so safely.
