We are pleased that your family has become a member of GISW. We're sure you've already received a lot of information about the school, but you may still have a thousand questions. We are here to help you!

Who are the NEWBEES?

We are engaged parents of students at the GISW and come from many different countries and cultures – and at one time we, too, were new to the school. Our goal is to answer any questions you may have regarding life at the GISW, to facilitate a smooth start for your child/your children at our school, and to integrate you in our school community as quickly as possible.

What do the NEWBEES offer?

  • We are here to answer your questions throughout the year
  • During the school year we organize NEWBEES-Breakfasts which are a great opportunity to meet other parents of our school community
  • We offer members of our school community to join our WhatsApp groups:
    • In the CHATBEES group you get quick answers to questions, hints and recommendations (for example, who knows a good chiropractor, where can I buy…)
    • The FLEABEES are like a flea market where you can buy and sell things.

How to get in contact with the NEWBEES?

 If you have any questions or want to join the CHATBEES and/or the FLEABEES, please send an email to:


We look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you personally!
