Parent Teacher Conferences are on this Wednesday, November 16.
These conferences are opportunities for teachers and parents to connect around how we can work together to best meet the needs of students. We are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Wednesday. Our partnerships with our students’ families are very important to us. In addition to these conferences, you are very welcome to contact your child’s teachers to share your insights or ask for feedback on your child’s progress at any time throughout the year.
ISY are SEASAC Champions!
We are very proud of our Boys and Girls Varisty Volleyball Teams who both won last week’s South East Asia Student Activities Conference (SEASAC) tournament in Singapore. Congratulations to all of the players, their coaches, and everyone who made our return to international sporting competition possible.

ISY Learning Stories – Differentiation in practice
Grade 9 Art Exhibition
Our Grade 9 Visual Art students are the first group to exhibit their work in the Secondary School Art Gallery. This Grade 9 art unit focussed on developing language skills to describe and analyse art work. The outcome was an acrylic painting from a description of a painting by Raoul Dufy. The students did not see the original painting until the end of the project.
