Highlights from our secondary school this month

Update from our Head of Secondary

I hope you are enjoying our updates and getting a glimpse of the real learning taking place in our school every day. I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate some of our outstanding students. 

Nord Anglia Visual Arts Competition

Each year, the Nord Anglia Education family of schools hosts a Visual Arts Competition where students of all ages from our 61 schools worldwide are invited to submit a piece based on a set theme. This year, the competition focussed on Sustainable Development Goals 4 and 16, quality education and peace, justice and strong institutions, and challenges students to show what these goals mean to them. UNICEF supported the judging of the competition. ICS Grade 8 student, Daniela Martinez, won with her painting ‘Just Breathe’. As you can see she has amazing artistic talent and her painting will be showcased in New York during the United Nation's High Level Political Forum in July this year. Congratulations Daniela!

We're also looking forward to hearing the winners of the Nord Anglia Creative Writing Competition soon.

A True Prodigy – Jaime Infante

The musical talent of Grade 8 student, Jaime Infante, was demonstrated to the whole of Spain on the TV programme ‘Prodigios’. Jaime is a winner to us and came second out of thousands of aspiring musicians, dancers and singers. To see one of the amazing performances by Jaime on the show click here.
