Life at IST
Events and Excursions
The International School of Toulouse has developed very strong links with the local area and population. Regular visits to Toulouse for students at all levels are organised so that they have a firm understanding and appreciation of the language, history and culture of this part of France. The School also organises residential trips to other parts of France and further afield in Europe. All activities are designed to enhance and enrich the learning experience.
The International School of Toulouse also hosts many cultural events. Distinguished writers, artists and musicians have visited the school to work with students and to present their work to parents.
The visual and performing arts have a very prominent place in the School as can be seen by the public displays of work and the many concerts and plays which have been performed.
Secondary School extra-curricular activities include clubs for creative writing, music, science, art, mathematics and drama opportunities to be involved in the school production.
Recent productions have included:
Around the World in 80 Days
Much Ado About Nothing
The Wizard of Oz
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
