IB2 Leavers' Assembly




GIS said farewell to its oldest students at the IB2 Leavers' Assembly.
The outgoing IB2 students were greeted with a guard of honour and party poppers by the IB1 students. 

Principal Mrs Hawtree then welcomed the students, who are in Year 13, to the whole school assembly.

IB Coordinator Mr Beales introduced several speakers who paid tribute to the IB2 students, including some brothers and sisters in the US, Canada and India. 

The Year 13 students are about to sit their final examinations for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, the world's largest and most-respected course for 16-18 year olds.

TALENT SHOW

TALENT SHOW
Sharp dance moves, soaring vocals and even juggling ensured the Secondary Talent Show was a huge hit. 

Organised by Creativity Prefect and IB1 student Tara, the acts performed to a packed audience of Secondary students. 

During the break, while judges decided on the winners, Mr Carr entertained the audience with a juggling masterclass. After some tough deliberations, the winners were an all-girl trio who sang a mash-up of Sugar, Love Me Like You Do and See You Again. In second place was a duet who performed Two is Better Than One and in third spot was another all-girl trio who sang Ride. 

Well done to Tara and her team for organising a great show, and to our technical crew for making everything look and sound so good! 
See highlights from the show here.

Here's how our IB1 students have been combining Art with Physics - the results are impressive!

HOUSE COUNCIL GIFTS

The House Council decided to use some of the money they raised last year to give the Year 11 and IB2 students, who have just finished their mock examinations, a well-earned gift.
One student was nearly brought to tears by the kind and thoughtful gift. Good luck for the real examinations!



STAYING SAFE ONLINE

IB students helped younger students learn about online safety as part of their PSHE lessons.

The IB students who are studying Information Technology in a Global Society (ITGS) came up with three mornings of activities for Years 7-9. This involved look-ing at how to stay safe on social media, what to be aware of and how to ensure students take steps to remain safe when online.

Feedback from the Years 7 to 9 students was very positive—well done to the IB students who organised this!
