Update from Head of Secondary

This month, the English as an Additional Language Department celebrated Mother Language Day. The Student Council released the Student Newspaper ‘The Blue and White’ and have been busy preparing flowers to be given out to students tomorrow. Grade 12 are finishing off their mock examinations and are continuing to study hard for their final IB DP exams in May. I was excited to be part of the Ski Trip and hope you all had a happy half term break, happy Valentine’s Day and a happy Chinese New Year!

International Mother Languages Day

Celebrating our mother tongue languages was great fun and a reflection on the real diversity of nationalities and languages we have at ICS, with over 72 nationalities enrolled. Thank you to the EAL Department for organising such an interesting day.
