The International School of Flanders (ISF) consists of two campuses, one in Waterloo and the other in Tervuren.
On Friday, 13 March 2020, the government announced that all schools in Belgium must close in the face of the COVID-19 Pandemic, by 09:00 on Monday, 16 March 2020, ISF Online learning started on-time, seamlessly and with not a single lesson lost. We ensured that all students had access to a device to use, coordinating the loan and distribution of school chromebooks and tablets to families who did not have sufficient technology at home for each child. At ISF no child was left behind.
We are a Google for Education school, and the platform is established in all that we do in the school. This helped us to make the transition from a physical to a digital environment easier. We keep our lessons interactive, in real-time, and students even continue to collaborate on projects together! In all subjects from English to Mathematics to Music and Physical Education, even our Science classes have continued to complete experiments and make hand-on discoveries.
Our parents are truly appreciative of the efforts that our caring teaching team are making.
“We appreciate all of the patience, time and energy that ISF has put into this online teaching program during this lockdown situation. The dynamic teaching style of the class teachers has made the students excited to learn, participate and have fun - even when the topic seems difficult to teach online. ISF has made a huge difference in the daily life of the students during this crisis period.”
“I have the utmost respect for the teaching staff who have evidently been given the right blend of empowerment and support to teach our children! Their calm and determined approach is everything we need in an otherwise unpredictable period of our lives.“
