ISB Compulsory Antigen Self Tests

Since 19th April it has been a mandatory requirement for all students (Grades 1 - 12) and staff to have an antigen rapid test twice a week if they are in face-to-face schooling.

The antigen rapid tests are provided free by the Bremen Senate and are the self test "Lolly" tests from Lepu Medical.

In the first week of testing staff and students tested in School. Now the Senate has provided single tests which staff and students should use at home before coming into School.

Grades 1 to 11 test at home twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.

Grade 12 are now on study leave until their Graduation on 18th June, but should test if they come into School for any meetings.

Parents are required to sign the confirmation slip provided with the test kit proving that their child has done the test and that the result was negative.

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.
