It has been a tradition for the boarding community at ISASC since the founding school year - the Head of School Dinner is held every Wednesday evening. At the dinner, the Head of School, teachers and boarding staff have dinner with the boarding students and enjoy time together to network.
For the boarding students of ISASC, a recent Wednesday night dinner was more special compared to the usual. In addition to our students, the Head of School, Mr David Edwards, invited students from ISA Wenhua IB, ISA Wenhua AL and ISA Wenhua Arts Centre to join together. This was the first time that all the boarding students from the ISA programmes came together in one room, and after the student representatives had spoken, the students from each programme ate together, enjoying the delicious food and getting to know each other better, and strengthening the collective cohesion of the whole ISA community.
ISA Science City Boarding House welcomes local, regional and international students, reflecting the diversity upon which the School is being created. Here, students can learn how to engage across cultures, instilling a unique world-view that will serve them throughout life, a key commitment that our school has as we prepare global citizens. The Boarding House is more than just a dormitory with accommodation, but a deeply connected community for all the boarding students where they can get the chance to extend their programmes and learn more about themselves and others.
