    ICS Language Trips to France and Spain

    What better way is there for students to learn languages than spending time in the countries where the languages are officially spoken? During the week-long October Break, ICS students are in France and Spain on their language trips.

    The students, apart from their language studies, will learn a great deal about culture, society, ways of life and more. These language trips help students develop traits of the ICS Learner Profile and are yet another example of the 21st century learning provided here at ICS.

    Here, students inspired listening to flamenco music played by a street musician.

    Grade 7 Creation Myths

    Grade 7 students have been reading creation myths from different cultures around the world. To end this unit, students were required to write their own myths. This introduced students to the different stages of creative writing. The final stage was the publication of their myths in a class anthology, complete with their own illustrations. A writer's cafe was then held, and students had the chance to read their myths aloud to each other over a croissant!

    Grade 12 Week Without Walls

    Grade 12 students spent the week in a series of intensive workshops writing their College Essays and Personal Statements for university applications under the guidance of our College Counselor, Cheryl-Ann Weekes, and teachers. They also completed their IB Extended Essays with advice from our teachers and IBDP Coordinator, Robert Jackson. The trip provided an opportunity for students to maintain our commitment to work alongside the members of the community in Woliso to improve conditions for primary school children in the area under the supervision of our CAS Coordinator, Ms. Tash McCarroll.

    Mesqel Celebration at ICS

    Mesqel, a celebration that marks the Finding of the True Cross, was celebrated at ICS with an all-day event ranging from a grade 3 drama performance to coffee ceremony, traditional dance and Demera, the lighting of the bonfire. The drama performance that depicted the Finding of the True Cross was amusing, informative and very well performed to the last detail in its acts and costume.
