ISL first opened its doors to students in 1963 and so has been in existence for over 50 years. Assuming that some students completed their education at ISL by 1970, our oldest alumni must be in their 60s and probably many are retired by now.
Since the early days of ISL, the world has changed massively, particularly in terms of technology. It was difficult to follow alumni in the past but with the advent of websites, email and, over the last few years, social media such as Facebook, it has become easier for alumni to keep up with what is happening at their old school. Click on our ISL Facebook button at the top of the page to see the latest from ISL. However, as people move, change their address, phone numbers, email and social media accounts, it is a challenge for the school to build and maintain an effective, up-to-date and accurate list of names and contact details of ISL Alumni.
Why do we want to keep in touch with alumni? There are a many reasons, including:
|Teachers at the school are always interested to hear what their ex-students are doing now.|
|Alumni are a good resource to help spread the word about ISL and help us attract more students.|
|Alumni make good visiting speakers at assemblies and other events, demonstrating success to our current students.|
|Alumni may wish to give something back to the school that helped them succeed in their working lives, whether that is through offering their expertise or through gifts, bequests or endowments to help the school fund redeveloping the campus for the 21st Century.|
ISL plans to create an official ISL Alumni Group for ex-students to join in the near future. Please keep an eye on this page over the next few months to find out more about this idea. In the meantime, if you would like more information relating to our Alumni Programme, please contact the school via the link to the right.
