International Schools Library Day – 14th October

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

IntLibDayThe children in the Early Childhood Section celebrated International School Library day by bringing in their favourite books to share with the class.  Many children also brought in donations for the Early Childhood library. The books donated were shared with the class and the children’s names were written inside the books so that future generations of children in ISS can enjoy them too.

Many thanks to children and parents who contributed so generously to our library.
