Commissioning and opening of an additional four classroom building (2018)

The new building was officially opened on 20 September 2018. It was financed by the City of Geneva, the Geneva Management Group and the PTA of the International School of Geneva.

The importance and impact of the new building cannot be over-emphasized. It enables the teachers to improve the level of education and addresses the challenge of an overcrowded school. The growing number of pupils admitted into the school had a negative impact on the learning environment. With the construction of the new 4 classroom building, overcrowded classes such as classes one and two will be divided into 2 classes each; this will allow the children to concentrate better and improve their learning One of the classrooms in the new building will be used as a school library. The pupils never had direct access to books. With the establishment of a school library the pupils will develop a reading habit that will encourage literacy and lifelong education. They will have exposure to new vocabulary in a variety of areas. Finally, the community participates in all school activities and the new building is used as a community resource. One of the classrooms is used to teach adult students enrolled at the Vocational Institute. Special thanks to our sponsors, we are happy so many children as well as their communities will benefit from the new building !
