GET TO IGS SAFELY WITH OUR SCHOOL BUS

Many of our pupils take our school buses. The children are picked up right on their doorstep and reach IGS together with their friends on time. At 16:20 hrs, our school buses leave campus and drive your child back to your home. You can then welcome your little ones and your not-so-little-ones hassle-free and let them tell you about their day in a relaxed atmosphere. All buses are accompanied by our bus assistants who can be reached at any time by telephone.
