Mark Your Calendar: Upcoming University Visits to IST
Purdue and Lehigh Universities from the US will be visiting in September. Also on the schedule are the University of British Columbia (Canada) as well as universities from the UK and other Canadian universities.

Daily Bulletin for Secondary Students
At IST Secondary, we want students to develop the skills of time management, planning and organising. The school shares a Daily Bulletin with students to help them keep track of important upcoming events and deadlines. To help parents support their children as they develop these skills, we are also sharing a link to the same Daily Bulletin with parents through this article for quick reference.
