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!

Year Book Cover Contest Contributions

Many thanks to all those students that sent in ideas for the Yearbook Cover. Two contributions have been chosen, one for the front and one for the back cover of the H.I.S. Yearbook 2019-20. It was a tough decision as you can imagine by looking at all the beautiful artwork submitted. Find out who the two winners are, when the Yearbook gets published end of June.

“Man Meets Dog”

Konnie is back

Today was not the first day back at school for Konnie, but he certainly celebrated his arrival at school this morning as if it had been his first. He welcomed staff and students and took his time before entering the building and going to his office.

In his book “Man Meets Dog” Nobel Prize winning ethnologist Konrad Lorenz, claims that dogs can smile and even laugh. I am pretty sure that I saw a huge smile on Konnie’s face today! A big thank you to Kate for looking after Konnie so well, he looks very healthy and happy!

Student: “I think we need to think about calling him Konrad from now on – he has grown so much!”

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?!

Habitat for Humanity – Chocolate

Support Grade 11 and #SaveTheSaviours

If you can recall, Grade 11 was meant to have an Easter Egg Hunt as a Habitat for Humanity fundraiser on the 2nd of April. Sadly, it had to be canceled due to the corona virus and the temporary school closure.

Because the hunt never happened, we were not able to distribute the chocolate to the kids. Aldi had sponsored us so this now leaves us with an abundance of chocolate.

Grade 11 has decided to use it to make small gift bags for any students that have returned back to school or any that will be returning soon.

Hopefully these gifts will inspire you to donate for our cause. Even though our trip to Romania was canceled, we have made the decision to continue to fundraise for a project called “save the saviors”.

Habitat for Humanity Romania, in partnership with the Moinesti Ambulance Center will build an Emergency Center, which will serve over 65.000 people from 11 communities in NE part of Romania. All the money that we raise will go towards making a new and better center for our saviors. You would be #savingthesavior. To make any donations, you can do it via this website link, which leads to the fundraising page of the H.I.S.  Grade 11 students:

For the students and teachers already present in school there is also a donation box at the reception. Thank you for all the support.
