From the Principal's Desk
I welcome you to the 2018/19 school year. I hope you received the Opening School Newsletter sent last week. For quick reference, a copy of the information can be read here.
This week we welcomed new and continuing students as well as Grade 6 who are moving from Upanga campus to Secondary Campus. To smooth up their transition, we conducted a boot-camp, showing them around the facilities, introducing them to their teachers and secondary students, as well as helping them get to know each other in a new environment.
Some of the highlights of the first few weeks of school coming up are:
Grade Level Beach Days for Grades 6-8
Beach Days are a great event which give students a chance to meet their entire Grade group in an outing to Bongoyo Island. The first Beach Day is scheduled for Grade 6 students on this Friday August 21st.
University Application Retreat
The college admissions process begins on Saturday, August 25 when grade 12 students will work with Mr. Bogliccini and Ms. Wright to begin working on their applications.
Whether you are new to IST or if you are a returning parent, I look forward to meeting you soon.
