Celebrate the achievements of our Grade 10 students with us: Join us for the Personal Project Presentation Evening in February. The students will show their Projects and share their learning with the H.I.S. community.

During the last Healthy Bake Sale, the grade 11 fundraising team invited the H.I.S. community to make a very “sweet guess”: The Gummy Bear Jar Guess!
Many thanks to everyone who participated in the project and helped to raise money for the grade 11 CAS trips 2020!
Here is what you’ve all been waiting for: the glass jar contained 862 gummi bears! The jar of gummy bears was handed over to the lucky winner, Alexa, grade 4, who got closest with her guess of 854.
Congrats Alexa and don’t eat them all at once! Everybody else, please don’t be disappointed, you might have better luck with the M&M guess starting next week organized by the student council supporting Konnie’s education …
Further actions to support the grade 11 CAS Trips 2020 will also come up in the future. The next Healthy Bake Sale will be on February the 5th. Keep an eye out for posters around the school! We appreciate your help!

When Science and Mathematics meet, electric motors can be built, using the power of magnets and metals.
The Grade 7 students have successfully proven that the scientific laws of the Universe are mathematical, while taking part in a whole day visit to Carl Bosch Museum in Heidelberg on Monday 13th January 2020.
The students built their own electric motors at Carl Bosch Museum, after learning about magnetism in class in the course of their current Science Unit.
The students have described the trip as joyful, fascinating but too short to experience all the possible fun one can have with Science and Mathematics.
Konnie has been attending a weekly puppy group and has done so well that he has been moved into the young dog group. During these sessions, we both learn important commands and he gets to socialise with other dogs.
At the weekend, Konnie passed the suitability test to be entered into the year-long Therapy Dog Training course. He did extremely well on most elements of the test, but along with the other dogs on the course, he will need to learn new commands and skills. The first module starts this coming weekend.
Staff members and some Grade 12 students continue to take Konnie for short walks during the day. He loves his trips outside and all the dog walkers try hard to ensure there is consistency in what they do with Konnie. For example, he always walks on the left-hand side.
Konnie still has a lot to learn. He is not yet 5 months old, but we are already extremely pleased with his progress.
Konnie travelled to Scotland on the ferry over the Winter Break. He loved his time on the beach in Amsterdam on our way home!
