The health and safety of our students is of utmost importance. We take caring for the physical and emotional health of each member of the school community very seriously.
Nut free school
Amity International School Amsterdam is a nut free school. Any exposure to peanuts/nuts may cause a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires emergency medical treatment for some students. To reduce the chance of this occurring, we ask all parents to not send any nut containing products (like cakes, Nutella, peanut butter etc.) to school.
Students at Amity International School Amsterdam bring a packed lunch with them every day which they are able to enjoy in our modern, spacious canteen. We try to ensure that students’ minds and bodies are ready for learning each day. In addition to the work we do every day to prepare students for success in the classroom we encourage parents to provide only healthy lunches and snacks for school. This helps to create healthy habits early in life. Healthy eating is the foundation for healthy development of a child’s brain, it can help them to concentrate better, to be more resilient and to reduce future health risks
Vaccinations and Youth Health Care Check ups
To ensure that children grow up as healthy as possible and can develop well, the Youth Health Care, which is a part of GGD Amsterdam (Community Public Health Service), offers advice, help and support. This care is for all children that live in the Netherlands. Together with the School Nurse, the Youth Health Service department in Amstelveen can provide Youth Health Care at Amity International School Amsterdam, this includes support with vaccinations and overall health check ups.
