Dear ISG parents,
ISG has given careful consideration to the rationale behind Ramadan school hours this year. We have taken advice from a number of sources, discussed the issues extensively with our core leadership team and presented the arguments to the ISG Board for a decision. The Board have decided to support the recommendation for an 0800 start / 1300 finish for all students. These timings will enable students to focus at school in the morning, after breaking their fast, and then rest at home in the afternoons.
Operationally, a later start time is unable to be accommodated, due to traffic levels building significantly in the later morning. ISG relies on a number of vehicles from external companies to bring students in and we have confirmation that if we adjust our timings, the resources will not be available to us.
We thank you for your support and understanding.
