H.I.S. has truly been one of the best things that has happened to me. The three years I was there (2007-2009), I developed a strong base and truly learnt a lot. It was a beautiful experience in itself. I never thought school could be this fun and creative.
Visiting H.I.S. again in October 2017 was just wonderful! Mr Raw showed us around the school and it was nice to see all the changes. I also met Mrs Macdonald and Mrs Lori.Seeing the school and my old classrooms reminded me of the many things we’d enjoyed, be it singing the alphabet each morning in Grade 1, the playground and the many games we must’ve played there, learning the times table with raisins or lying on the carpet and listening to a story being read out. It brought out the best in every student. We learnt how to communicate in a very effective and confident manner. Our creativity was given a large platform with the many activities we had. Our listening, reading and writing skills were enhanced thanks to our reading hours, story writing and listening sessions. The best thing was that everyone felt special!
Now, in Grade 11, I’ve taken up Humanities and am aspiring to work in the writing profession. All the things I learnt at H.I.S. have helped me cope with my new schools. My listening skills helped me catch up with new languages faster. Most importantly, my interest in writing and reading began at H.I.S. A big thank you to all my amazing teachers for their time, their support and all these valuable gifts which will stay with me forever and help me grow further!
