School Store

The Bear Necessities

The PTA School Store – Bear Necessities – is located in the main foyer and is run entirely by parent volunteers.

Bear Necessities stocks many of the school supplies ISA students need for the academic year, plus a wide range of ISA items like t-shirts, PE shorts, music and gym bags, mugs, shopping bags, pens etc. The store also sells maps of Amsterdam and surrounding areas and a variety of books and dictionaries to help you settle in the Netherlands.

The profits generated by the store go to the PTA and are used to cover costs of various PTA-sponsored events and as matching donations for SHARE charities.
