Monday Memory: Can you help identify these early students?

Monday Memory where are they now

By Nick Yates, ISB Communications

We’re launching a search to try to identify these 14 individuals in one of the International School of Beijing’s (ISB) earliest classes. Can you help? Are you even one of them?

Of all the photos we’ve got of life on campus, this is one of the oldest. Like a lot of vintage pictures, it holds an intriguing quality. Where are these children now? What do they remember about their days at ISB? After all the promise of studying at one of the world’s leading international schools, what have they gone on to do in their adult lives? Does the girl in the bottom row still regret having her eyes closed when the photographer’s flash went off?

We would love to hear from you at if you can shed light on any of these questions.

ISB is proud to be celebrating four decades of commitment to education services dedicated to Beijing’s inspiring international community. This year, everyone is invited to join in celebrating the 40th anniversary through a range of events. Check out the Celebrating 40 web page for more details.

Past and present students, parents, and staff – please continue to send your photos and memories of ISB to the email address above for your chance to be featured here and in the Celebrating 40 Exhibition.
