Celebrate Dragon Spirit

Build Strong Life-Long Peer Relationships in Our Inclusive Community


Celebrate an unforgettable evening with fellow members of the ISB community. ISB is proud to announce that we will hold a gala evening of celebration and entertainment on Saturday, March 25, 2023.  

This will be a night for friendship and celebrating the strong bonds among our inclusive community. Worldwide, the past few years have provided challenges for us all and for the cohesiveness of all kinds of groups of people. For everyone involved with ISB, March 25 will be a time to reconnect, renew our commitment to building lifelong peer relationships, and to support challenging and joyful learning at its best.

As we get ready for the Gala, you might ask, What is Dragon Spirit?   

This is the term used at ISB to sum up what it means to be a member of the school’s community, the values and resilience of character that define us. It is named for the school’s emblem and mascot, the Dragon. Heather Woodruff’s role as a member of ISB’s Board of Trustees includes responsibility for community and alumni engagement.  

According to Ms. Woodruff, “When we consider the positive elements in our community, Dragon Spirit comes into focus. Dragon Spirit encapsulates the values upon which our school was built over 40 years ago. I think we must hold firm to these same values as we continue to make our school great for the next 40 years.   

“For me, Dragon Spirit means creating a welcoming environment for all who join our ISB family, looking for ways to inspire our students and communities in friendship and on to greatness. Dragon Spirit means honoring differences, learning joyfully together, empowering each other with purpose and compassion, and embedding a sense of belonging in the community that transcends the walls of our school. I see Dragon Spirit growing stronger with each friendly connection between students, parents, alumni, and staff. We strengthen it as we unite East and West in a cultural exchange bringing vitality and goodness in all its forms.” 

Let’s further strengthen Dragon Spirit at the ISB Gala! 

Go Dragons!
