ISY Alumni Association

The Beginning of the Association

The past five years have been transformational for Myanmar—with a conscious step towards democratic reform and the opening of its doors to the international community, it is safe to say this is the time to be here. And for so many others, the International School of Yangon’s alumni have heard that call and responded. A steady flock of those who call ISY their alma mater have decided to return home to Yangon once again.

The alumni association hopes to reestablish the sense of community they shared while attending ISY. With growing numbers, the desire to connect with former schoolmates is felt by many. Moreover, the need to give back to the school is an integral part of our legacy as alumni.

We hope the ISY Alumni Association will grow and develop a long-standing tradition of connection, communication and support. With the formation of this body, we hope to serve as a link to propel ISY into the future while maintaining our sense of pride as "Once a Chinthe, Always as Chinthe".
