What does my child need for the Boarding House?
You should give your child 1 duvet, 1 pillow, 2 sets of sheets and pillowcases and toiletries. Computer and cell phone usage is allowed up until bedtime. All of the boarding houses are equipped with a wireless internet connection.
My child is sick. What happens?
If a student is ill in the morning, she/he must come to school so that the Coordinator can take the necessary steps to get him/her treated by a doctor.
What do boarding students do on the weekend?
Various weekend activities are planned for the boarding students, often in consultation with the students themselves. The different activities include sports, artistic and cultural visits, free time, snow skiing, beach outings, etc
Meals are organized at School, at the Boarding House or at a Restaurant.
My child has to come home for the weekend. How is this organised?
Weekly boarders (who leave every weekend) can use the IBS shuttle service for a fee to get to the airport, train or bus station.
The shuttles are in service on Friday starting at 3 pm and on Sundays starting at 5 pm.
What about laundry and cleaning?
The Boarding Houses are cleaned daily by the IBS Cleaning staff but students have to tidy their rooms and make their bed before leaving.
A weekly laundry service is provided for Permanent Boarders. They should bring their laundry on Wednesday morning and can pick it up cleaned and ironed the following Monday.
How are students distributed in the bedrooms?
We try to mix the different nationalities, as much as we can. At the beginning of the School Year, students are allotted their bedrooms according to their age and/or grade, for the rest of the School Year. If 2 students want to share the same bedroom, they can ask for that before the School Year actually starts.
My child wants to spend a night outside of the Boarding House?
During the week, students cannot spend the night outside the Boarding House except under special circumstances.
During the weekend, students can have permission to spend more time outside or with a host family. Parents should send an authorisation at least 2 days before.
I want to give pocket money to my children. What do I do?
Pocket Money should be given directly to the Boarding House Coordinator who will establish a school bank account. Once deposited, students can take out money when and as she/he needs.
Can my child take part in supplementary activities?
During the week, Clubs are organised on some evenings as well as Wednesday afternoon.
