During Homeroom Grade 8 students made Pumpkin Soup and served it to the school staff for lunch as a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity. They raised 49.80 euros! The Pumpkins were grown and harvested locally. Grade 8 would like to encourage people to eat local produce to help protect the Environment.
H.I.S. staff members were delighted about the delicious lunch, served by Grade 8. Many thanks to Grade 8 and their Homeroom Teacher John Knowles for this fantastic service. We can’t wait to taste the next soup…!
Grade 3 has started a new initiative, tea time! After harvesting the herbs that she planted last year, Mrs. Esser has been brewing up some delicious fresh herbal tea.
With a bit of foresight these herbs were planted last school year with a long term plan to help students stay healthy through the early winter months. Students have the opportunity to bring in a mug and drink the tea throughout the day. So far we’ve had all types of teas, including mint!
How is the tea? ‘Good!’ said one student when asked to comment. Another gave some more description, ‘When you smell it, it smells like lemon. But when you drink it tastes like… hmmm… I don’t know the word for it. Let me try.’
Grade 3 will continue harvesting and using our locally grown herbs for as long as supplies last. We look forward to a hopefully healthier fall season!”

Thanks to the huge number of generous participants of the German Night, the Cultural Event Working Group was able to purchase the bench. Together with the existing benches at the school entrance the “German Night Bench” is inviting you to rest and chat when you are outside waiting for school to start or finish. Enjoy the sunny autumn weather there and Herzlich Willkommen!
Special thanks to Julia, for taking care of ordering the bench.
