Newcomers' Club

Each school year at GISNY New York is characterized by many new faces, new students, as well as their parents.
The students usually adapt very quickly to their new environment, partly because of the help and guidance they receive from their classmates, who may also have had the experience of being new and in a foreign place themselves.
The aim of the Newcomers' Club is to support these new families while they are getting accustomed to their life here in New York. Get-togethers, breakfasts and other socializing events are hosted to provide an opportunity to talk, to get to know each other or maybe even become close friends.

Because of COVID-19 we unfortunately had to pause our program and can’t currently offer our usual monthly activities. We hope that this will slowly improve and that we can inspire everyone with our usual events. Currently only a few outdoor activities are planned for the upcoming school year. Our planning is very much oriented towards the reopening phases of the state of New York. So stay tense and flexible and let yourself be surprised what may come.

Hook Mountain Trail (April 23rd)

Newcomers and "oldies" alike are invited to a casual morning with interesting and fun conversations. You do not need to sign up for Breakfasts – just come along!
