A Magic Assembly

Mr Raw welcomed a special guest during his Primary School Assembly Zoom today. Mr Taika, a famous magician from Finland, joined him to entertain the Primary students with some mind blowing magic tricks. After borrowing a pencil from the Queen of Ickyea, he managed to divide the pencil into 3 pieces, while students and staff watched in astonishment. Other tricks involved a ferocious balloon animal and a set of cards.

Dear Mr Taika,

Thank you for your wonderful and entertaining performance. We would like to welcome you back next school year. I hope you can find time in your busy schedule to come to H.I.S. in the school year 2020-21.

yours,

the H.I.S. students and staff

Performing Arts – Grade 8 Murder Mystery

In Performing Arts this year the Grade 8’s have written their very own murder mystery!

HOUSE OF POISON 

One big happy family. One dreadful murder that ripped them apart.

When the head of the William’s household is found dead as a result of cyanide poisoning, suspicion naturally falls on his beautiful young widow, Angela. Everyone is keen to find out the truth… or so it appears. A young detective sets out to find the truth. Secrets are being spilt. Loyalties are being tested.  The detective is hard at work… but she might need some help. We tried to solve the murder…now it’s your turn: Who killed Walter Williams?

Coming Soon to a screen near you!

Welcome back Grade 10

It so good to hear your voices in the school building! Grade 10 students returned to school after the temporary closure and seemed very glad to be back. The class was divided into two groups, with each group occupying a room. Like Grade 5 last week, the Grade 10 students had an open air PE lesson on the roof top terrace.

Grade 1 students returned back to school this week, too – check the blog for some photos of the class tomorrow!

Roof Top PE

Back at school, Grade 5 enjoyed the sunshine an their first “Roof Top PE lesson” last week. Thanks to the creative energy of their PE teacher, the work out at a distance was very effective – sore muscles anyone?!

Welcome back Grade 5

Grade 5 students had a great time exploring the playground at morning break.

They found it easy to think of games to play that would help them keep the required distance from each other. Thank you for being so mindful and caring – it’s lovely to have you back at school!

Too all those of you waiting patiently at home: We are thinking of you and we hope to welcome you back soon, too.

Welcome Back

Good to see you!

We were thrilled to welcome back Grade 11 students and teachers today. On entering the building students wore protective masks, picked up their timetables and made their way upstairs to the top floor. It was good to see you arrive this morning, we truly missed you!

No drop-off was required, yet, but an individual welcome “at a distance” for every student was a highlight of this morning.

Students and staff learn, teach and work in school as well as at a distance this week.

It was good to see “stuff” left on the benches again.

We wish you a good week back at school. Thank you everybody for doing a fantastic job at following the safety precautions and hygiene requirements today. Let’s hope that we can welcome more students back to school soon.
