ISB Starts Antigen Self Testing

Early Learning staff have been tested weekly since mid January 2021 by our Health Office but since 5th March we have received Lepu Medical self testing kits as with many other Bremen Schools from the Bremen Senate. We have set up a testing team reflecting a cross section of the school, comprising of two science teachers, our Grade 1 teacher, one of our P.E. teachers, our Front Office secretary and our Health Coordinator. We recieved training from the Bremen MVZ walk-in testing center staff and have set up weekly self tests for all ISB staff which are carried out next to the medical room and in the Physics prep room. We are also in the process of rolling out self tests for our student cohorts, Grades 3-12. For the parental consent form for the student tests please click here.

Student Mental Health

In these challenging times, mental health is an important issue. Especially for young people and children who are not able to be with their school friends and peers and their daily life has changed for them in a way some find difficult to cope with. ISB Secondary students have been reflecting on this and their feedback has been made into this short video to raise mental health awareness.
