Nurses' Office

A healthy learner is a successful learner and here at the International School of London (ISL) Qatar we are committed to ensuring that your child has the best available care to support their learning.

We have two full time licensed Registered Nurses to attend to and manage all health and wellbeing needs of students and staff. We provide first aid and support any medical intervention in the event of an emergency. Growth monitoring and vision screening is carried out yearly by the nurses along with supporting the Ministry of Public Health during the Grade 10 Tdap campaign.
