The Independent Bonn International School.

Bonn. IBIS will be hosting an Open Day mid November. As well as offering prospective parents a chance to get to know the school, the day will also give pupils and their families a chance to bid farewell to longstanding headteacher Irene Bolik.

Independent Bonn International School (IBIS) will open its doors to prospective pupils and their families on Saturday, 18 November. During its annual Open Day, which will run from 10am to 12.30pm, visitors will have the chance to tour the school’s facilities, chat to pupils and staff, enjoy singing and dance performances and observe lessons and activities in the classrooms.

Founded in 1963, IBIS is an English language school operating a programme based largely on the English National Curriculum. The school encompasses Foundation through to Year 8 and is located on a purpose-built site on the Heiderhof in Bad Godesberg. Alongside large contingencies from Great Britain, the United States and other English-speaking countries, some 33 nationalities are represented. 

As well as highlighting all the school has to offer, the Open Day will give pupils and families past and present the chance to bid a fond farewell to longstanding headteacher, Irene Bolik, who has been at the school for 36 years. Lovingly referred to by some pupils as “The Queen,” Mrs Bolik will be retiring to her native Scotland. Her replacement is Phillip Wharton.

IBIS is located at Tulpenbaumweg 42, 53177 Bonn.
