ISB student, Alma, recently starred in the family opera performed in German, Schellen-Ursli at Theater Basel. Her classmate, Ciara, sat down with Alma to ask her about her experience and what she loves about performing.
International School Basel was saddened to learn of the passing of one of our alumni, Kobe Bryant. Kobe attended ISB at our Schulhaus Burggarten location in Bottmingen for a short time in the early 90's when his father, Joe Bryant, played for French basketball club, FC Mulhouse Basket.
In addition to academics, service is a large part of the learning that happens every day at International School Basel. Being located in Basel, Switzerland offers our students and staff wonderful opportunities to get involved in the local community and learn the language.
A recent project spearheaded by two ISB Senior School students, EnYu and Liv, showcased both service and language acquisition in an effort to connect with the local community. Read more about how the project resulted in over thirty Grade 11 students volunteering at the local Coop Gartenstadt interacting and helping local customers.
ISB aims to enhance student life by providing students the opportunity to join clubs and societies. Film society has been very busy lately in that they produced a 15 second horror film in order to compete in a worldwide competition. We interviewed the two students who were the minds behind the idea & who were in charge of production (filming) and asked them about the experience and thought process.
Anne O'Hara joined ISB in November, 1990 after having worked in a small publishing firm upon arrival in Basel. Anne began her tenure in the ISB in the ECP department, in which she was responsible for Administration and Finance, and has since been working in Accounts Payable in Reinach. Anne enjoys the birthday celebrations and nights out that take place outside of the office environment.
Last weekend, the ISBasel Athletic teams took part in the annual SGIS tournament all around Switzerland, including Reinach. All teams were very successful with the Girls Varsity volleyball team securing second place and the Boys Varsity volleyball team winning the tournament!

Congratulations to our ISBasel athletes for a successful weekend and their hard work, dedication & enthusiasm.
