Throughout the academic year 2020–2021, our 3000 alumni members contributed to the ISL community, shared stories, experiences, advice, and much more. We are constantly looking for past ISL friends to join the alumni network. If you have friends, old classmates, teachers, staff members, or parents who have not yet joined the programme, please ask them to register via the website.

2020 – 2021

ALUMNI TALKS PROGRAMME
Numerous alumni members joined the new programme by discussing the following topics: university transitions, university decisions, and career paths!

DESIGN DEPARTMENT
ISL alumni members shared advice on how to best prepare for pursuing a degree or career in design. Their experiences, tips, and stories will be displayed in the design corridor at ISL.

UNIVERSITY Q&A SESSIONS
Fifteen university Q&A sessions were organised to help Year 11 and Year 12 students explore different universities and ask all their questions.

CLASS PROJECTS
The ISL Alumni Programme aims to celebrate the stories, achievements, and experiences of its members as well as the different classes. A video for the Class of 2011 was created with beautiful messages from their ISL teachers. Additionally, we celebrated the new members of the alumni community – the class of 2021.

STEM WEEK
Five alumni members shared their views, experiences in STEM, and advice with ISL’s secondary school students.

Get Involved
The ISL alumni network is constantly expanding; however, the aim remains the same – a community of lifelong international friendships, an ISL family, and a place in which members remain connected and engaged. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to share your experiences, stories, memories, or advice. We always appreciate your involvement and contributions.
