We all know how important food is for our children. International School Ruhr uses a company that prepares school lunches mainly from fresh produce using regional ingredients wherever possible. Vegetarian alternatives are available daily.


Whether with a band-aid, an ice pack or a few encouraging words – our certified first-aiders are always available in school for help. Note the following recommended medical services for children in Essen.
