American author David Schwarz will be visiting ISS (Degerloch and Sindelfingen) from October 11th to 13th. David is an award winning author and is well known for his books which carry a maths and science theme. He is well known for making kids excited about these topics and developing curiosity and wonder in children. You can check out David’s books from any of the ISS libraries.
Over 4 weeks the Grade 2 students have been coming up to the library to use their problem solving skills in order to crack the code and open the locks of the breakout box. As well as solving the pattern and coding problems the students worked together as a team to share ideas and come up with the solutions.
60 budding witches and wizards joined in the fun at the Lower School Harry Potter Night in April. They were sorted into Houses, played each other at Quidditch, mastered potions and attended wand making classes.
Henry Evans , scientist and explorer shared with students on all campuses his thrilling journey to the South Pole. Students (or parents) can borrow his book “From University to the South Pole” from any of the libraries to read more about the physical journey or the scientific work he completed whilst on Antarctica.
There are many ways to recycle outdated textbooks – here is just one way 🙂

There will be no planned class visits for Upper and Middle School but again, your son or daughter can purchase a book for between 10-15 EURO.
As a result of the sale, ISS do receive free books from Little English Bookworm that go to the library and classrooms so this is an excellent opportunity for us all to obtain some great new books.
