Welcome to term two. We started the new term with the first of our Parent Teacher Conferences for our Grade 9 and 10 students. These are important meetings that provide opportunities for parents, guardians and students to meet teachers of all subject areas and discuss the focus for the new term and answer any questions. Parent Teacher Conferences continue on Monday 26th for Grade 9 and 10 and on Tuesday 27th for Grade 11 and 12.
On Friday we had a wonderful lunchtime of music from members of the school rock band. Well done to Yuri, Mhairie Flor, Nicola and Megan. We are looking forward to the next lunchtime concert on Wednesday.
Week Without Walls
Our Week Without Walls has been kicked off and flights are being booked. Some students need new passports and were each individually contacted by the HS office - please treat the renewal of the passport as a matter of priority as we now need to start acquiring visa's for the trips to Vietnam, Cambodia and Philippines for some nationalities.
We have an information evening on the 17th November at Preston campus at 6:30pm. All parents, guardians and students are invited to come along to hear more about the various trips and it will also be an opportunity to ask any questions.
A letter was sent to families recently about our upcoming photograph week. There will be opportunities for families and individual students to have their photographs taken in school uniform. On Friday the upcoming Graduates will have group and individual photographs taken in their regalia. Students must wear school uniform on Thursday and Friday, PE attire is not acceptable.
ISS now has its first-ever student-produced news blog! Our team of student journalists has been hard at work over the first term producing content about the students, by the students, and for the students. You can find their stories at issvoice.com.
