Parents of children from the school can take advantage of the following opportunities:

1. Catering
Iskra School offers the services of an external catering company, which provides hot and quality food to the students on a daily basis. 
The menu is healthy and adapted to the age needs of children. 
Each family has the option of ordering on a weekly basis through the online platform

2. Homemade food
At the discretion of the parents, children can also eat home-cooked food. Iskra School has a requirement that it is healthy, free from packaged products and those high in sugar. In school there are facilities for warming food, each child has his own utensils, bowls and cups. 

Regardless of the option chosen, the children eat together. 

CHE “Iskra” works with a team of certified and credited specialists in the field of mental health, education and social services from “CENTER” Ltd. and their partners. They work collaboratively with teachers to develop and implement a plan for specific support in the classroom or for specific students.

The children’s daily routine includes time for play and free time outdoors. The children at the “Iskra” school not only play outside every day, they very often take the classroom to the school’s extensive green yard.

Students are not allowed to bring any means of communication onto the grounds of Iskra Private Elementary School.
Communication between children and parents is through their teachers. 

Children spend most of their days at school. Each child has their own personal locker for storing personal belongings as well as a locker. 

At Iskra Private Primary School we require children to have a spare change of clothes, rubber boots, raincoat, cutlery kit and slippers at school.

All textbooks, teaching aids, exercise books and worksheets are kept in school and each parent is able to take them home and look at them whenever they wish. 

Children only bring home cooked food in case they do not take advantage of the catering menu.
