New to ISB?  

Welcome!  The ISB PA is very proud to welcome you and your family to our school community.  We are here to help you and your family settle into school and in Breda.  We also have experienced living abroad from first hand and know how stressful and difficult it can be in terms of finding out what works in day to day life.


We have developed some programs and resources such as a welcome Booklet, New Parent Buddy Program and many groups and clubs to help you get settled.  Please look through the information on this page and if you have any questions please reach out!


With kindest regards,

Your ISB Parent Association


Welcome Booklet

We have created a welcome booklet to help make the transition to life in the Netherlands easier.  It contains a great deal of information and resources to help you navigate getting settled and also through everyday life here in your home.  Click here to check it out...























ISB PA Buddy Program

Being in a new school or town can sometimes be overwhelming, especially during the current, uncertain times we are all faced with.

In order to help new families navigate their way through the school year we introduced the ISB Buddy Program. New parents are paired with settled parents, one on one, to create a warm welcoming atmosphere and to make integration into the ISB community accessible and easy.


The idea is to have a very informal cup of coffee or tea together and make some time to answer questions that the new parent may have. When and where and how often is all up to you. Volunteers can sign up by sending an email to

If you are a new ISB parent and you wish to be connected to a settled ISB parent, please email
