Do you want an International Student ID Card?
What are student IDs?
ISIC (International School ID Cards) is a company which distributes IDs for international students. Students aged 12 and up can have one.
What are the benefits?
There are many benefits of the ID card. For example, discounts in local restaurants, museums, cinemas, clothes and office supplies shops, bookstores, public transport, and more. They are also good for general ID too.
If you would like your student to have a card, you can apply here. They cost £7 per card. Students should bring in the money and Gwen (G10), the Halcyon Student Council treasurer, will come by advisory to collect the money.

This 2013 Fringe-hit from Belgium’s extraordinary Ontroerend Goed and Australia’s The Border Project is a theatrical game that puts the power into your hands. You'll be armed with voting keypads while five candidates battle to get your attention, sympathy and approval - but only one contestant can survive this popularity contest.
This timely exploration of democratic processes and the cult of celebrity is exciting, vital theatre and every performance is bound to be different, because the vote is yours. But do you really have free choice?
