High School News – David Redmond, HS Principal

ICS HS Senior Parade

The ICS Senior Parade will take place on Friday, 26 May at 12:30 pm, directly after graduation rehearsal. Grads will march out along the route while the entire school comes out to applaud and shower them with praise. It is a wonderful expression of our admiration and respect, one that is truly reflective of the ICS Way. Teachers especially, but all of us at ICS who have supported these students can take pride in their accomplishments.

ICS High School Final Exams

Final exams for all High School students take place from 31May to 6 June. Please see the Final Exam Schedule in order to be aware of when your children take their exams. Note that students are not required to be on campus in the mornings until 9:40 am during the Exam period and that dismissal is at 3:20 pm as it is normally. If a student has only one exam and it ends at 12:00, then the student is expected to leave campus at that time. If a student takes an afternoon exam and not a morning exam, the student should not arrive at school before 1:00 pm.

As we approach the end of the year, please ensure that your children are well rested and prepared for these final assessments. Please also note that exams may not be given early for any reason, and all students MUST attend the final exam. Please do communicate with the High School Office if you anticipate that your child will be absent during the final weeks of the year. Please address all questions regarding final exams to Mr. Kevin Hewitt, High School Assistant Principal.
