Our Varsity Volleyball teams had great success with the U19 Girls team winning 3rd place in the playoffs and the U19 boys becoming Champions of their league. Fantastic team work was displayed and also dedication from coach Larkins who encouraged the teams from the side lines. Many supporters went along to watch and once again demonstrated real ISS team spirit.
We held our first PTC last Wednesday and many parents and guardians took the opportunity to meet with their child's teachers. Please sign up for the PTC this Wednesday 8th Nov if you missed last week, it is very important that you meet the teachers and gain a clearer insight into how you too can support your child's learning journey at ISS.

Last month we celebrated the IB Learner Profile 'Principled'. We act with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness and justice, and with respect for the dignity and rights of people everywhere. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences. Congratulations to the following students:
