Throughout the school year, the ISD community enjoys a variety of events, most of which have been part of the ISD heritage for many years. They are planned and produced by students, staff, and many parent volunteers, and they all reflect the rich diversity and multiculturalism of the ISD community.

The International FEST is our largest community gathering, and has been an important ISD tradition since 1980.

The Elementary School campus is converted into a tented village with over twenty countries sharing their culture, gastronomy, tourism attractions, and plenty of fun activities. There is a full programme including stage performances, children's activities, and an international flag parade featuring over 100 students. The Fest is eagerly anticipated by students, staff, parents, alumni, and neighbors from the surrounding community. Nearly 2000 visitors come to ISD to celebrate the rich diversity of cultures from which we come, while enjoying a uniquely international melting pot of flavours, sights and sounds.
