Dear ISB Parents, Alumni, Faculty and Staff, Friends, Partners and Supporters, This is already our fifth annual, dinner, dance and auction, and our first under our new name of ISB Night! Since we began in 2007, this annual event has raised well over €200,000 and enabled us to improve our campus and our programme in ways that would not otherwise have been possible……..and it has been great fun along the way. Speaking of fun, I’ve had more than ever this year, as it has been my personal pleasure to work directly with the team of dedicated volunteers that make this event such a resounding success. They have been so successful this year that we had the experience of selling out all seats shortly after opening ticket sales. My personal appreciation to Tina Montana, Laura Hoffman, Brigid Reale, Anna Maria Croneborg, Pia Ramén, Sigrun Kreienbaum, Sabine Schwarz, ably supported by Michelle Brown, David Willows, Carine Morin and Jessica Franken, for all the hard work and all the laughs!! Thanks also this year to all the faculty and staff, and, of course, the students, who have been working on the Service Learning Projects we are supporting, to my own management team, and our Trustees, each of whom has added their whole-hearted support and to all of our many donors and sponsors, who have supported us in record numbers and with huge generosity.
Have a wonderful ISB Night! and many, many thanks to you all for your generous, active support of ISB and its vision for developing active, skilled International Citizens.

What is Service Learning? Service Learning is a research-based learning method through which skills and knowledge acquired in the classroom are applied through planned strategic action that addresses an authentic community need. Through Service Learning our students: undertake new challenges, plan and initiate activities, work collaboratively with others, show perseverance and commitment, engage with issues of global importance, consider the ethical implications of their actions, develop new skills, increase their awareness of strengths and areas for growth.
SERVICE LEARNING @ ISB: “I like composting. It's great how the worms can turn rubbish into something that helps flowers and trees grow.” Alfred D'hanis-Brown, 2nd Grade (Composting)
“After working for the past three years with Cap 48, I really developed myself as a person and as a leader … This was a valuable lesson for me not only because it taught me more leadership skills but also to work with disabled people and learn from them.” Elie Lamazerolles, 12th grade (Cap 48) 4 ISB Night!
Our mission goals are to develop: International Citizens – students with a strong sense of empathy, a respect for diverse perspectives and a growing self-knowledge. Independent Learners - students who have developed such a deep understanding of their classroom learning that they can apply it successfully in challenging real-world contexts. These qualities are not developed in the classroom alone. We believe that they are the result of personal experience, acquired through active Service Learning Projects. Our students plan and execute their projects, just as adults do in the world of work: identifying goals, planning actions, marshalling resources, allocating accountabilities, analyzing results. They do so in ways that engage them with realities that are not found within the “ISB bubble”...and we’re not talking about tennis! This exposure helps them see the world that others occupy, and to develop their own sense of empathy, compassion and commitment. Service Learning is ‘mission-critical’ to us, so our goal is that every ISB student, every year, will have a real Service Learning experience. Some will be far afield, most will be local.
“The Togo trip this year was amazing. It gave me so many opportunities to open my eyes to a new world entirely. I was able to step out of my comfort zone and learn. My personal goal … is that we ultimately have put one element … into their hands that will help them rise above the poverty and create themselves a better life, and … for their community.” Dylan Cassell, 11th Grade (Togo 2010)
OUR MISSION IN MOTION All funds raised through ISB Night! are dedicated to supporting these projects, providing training, materials, transportation, and travel scholarships. No funds are passed directly to beneficiaries, but always used to support Projects through which our students learn. By supporting ISB Night!, and our Annual Fund, you are supporting Service Learning, supporting our Mission, and supporting our students in achieving our educational vision for them. We need this support, and we thank you for giving it so generously. Kevin Bartlett ISB Director
“Going on a service trip to Tanzania benefits both the people you help and yourself.You develop a different perception of how the circumstances are for some people and at the same time the importance of helping other people in need. It is inspiring to learn about another culture and having a great time while doing it!” Theodor Bolin, Grade 12 (Tanzania 2010)
“I went to prepare boxes … in Brussels with other people from Serve the City. In total, I think we made around 200 boxes. Today felt really satisfying, keeping in mind that all of that is going to people from Belgium in need, I helped people from my own country, which is closer to me personally than the people from Africa I helped with the African Bazaar.” Ellen Moysens, 11th Grade (Serve the City) 5

605 PRECIOUS POUNAMU STONE NECKLACE A special item donated to the ISB Night! auction by Caroline Nu’u, this pounamu necklace is a unique, hand-carved piece from New Zealand. Pounamu plays a very important role in Maori culture. It is considered a taonga (treasure) and is valued for its strength, durability and beauty. However, its value transcends the aesthetic and practical properties. Because of its link with chiefs and peacemaking, it is considered to have mana (status) and to be sacred. The stone is highly treasured by all tribes throughout New Zealand. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries a number of skilled, professional carvers started to produce high-quality jewelry, emphasizing both Maori designs and the stone’s natural beauty. This design is a koru pattern. A koru-shaped carving symbolizes new life or beginnings, growth, peace and harmony. If you hold it up to the light you can see its warm semi-translucent beauty. A piece to treasure for a lifetime. Thanks to Caroline Nu’u, ECC Head

underground waste solutions Molok digs deeper for you
A pleasure for people
Made for the environment
Molok’s Deep Collection is an ingenious collection of semi-underground waste containers. What you see is a stylishly crafted container that blends seamlessly into its surroundings but this is only the tip of the iceberg. Two thirds of the volume is out of sight as it is concealed neatly and safely underground.
Molok containers can hold more waste, but take up less space. This looks more attractive and is kinder on your budget. It’s logical really, as your waste does not need to be collected as often. The well thought out cellar effect also ensures optimal hygienic circumstances and much safer storage for your waste.
Sustainability and environmental friendliness are a constant theme throughout all Molok’s activities. The Molok systems have been contributing to supple and ecological waste collection for years. The containers themselves are composed of sustainable materials as far as this is possible.

To top off this playful, artistic adventure, the party will end with a celebration worthy of an encore, featuring a delicious, organic Birthday Tea Party. Let the festivities begin! Offer valid from October 8, 2011 to January 14, 2012 during the “Europalia Brasil” exposition. Offer is for a birthday party for one child aged six to 12 with a maximum of 15 children per guide.
