ISY Staff Get Certified on the New Climbing Wall
If you have not been in the gym for the past few months, you have missed the installation of a new, state-of-the-art climbing wall! ISY installed the wall in the gymnasium during January/February 2021. The wall is going to support two top-rope climbing areas as well as two Tru-Blu devices, which automatically belay climbers. This will enable PE teachers and ASA advisors to have more climbers on the wall safely at a time.
Seven members of our local staff, including PE assistants, lifeguards, and security staff, received their SEACF Level 1 certifications earlier this week. This will enable them to assist with PE classes and ASAs during the 2021-22 school year. There will be another certification for international staff in August.
ISY Facilities Update (May 7-16)
The following schedule is subject to change. Please note when making reservations: if a space does not appear, it is either full or has been blocked for a school activity.
Swimming pool lane space is VERY limited! There have been many “no-shows” this week, which means that lanes could have been used by others.
If you reserve a lane and cannot make it for your session PLEASE cancel your reservation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that family members share a lane.
