Year 7 students have done a fantastic job of settling into school and everyone has been impressed with their enthusiasm and organisation. Of course there have been a few  confused students who have misread their timetables and some who still have to register their laptops but this is part of starting a new school. We are very impressed and hope that they feel part of their Houses and Island School.

Now that the initial induction is complete, more opportunities for your sons and daughters will be available to get involved in House and school life. Their first inter-house competition is this Friday and all students are expected to either play or support their House. The mixed netball competition will start at 3.25pm and last until 5pm when the activities bus will take students to Pier 3 and Admiralty MTR. All students will have a House Assembly on Tuesday and the activities sign up will soon be open on Gateway for students to select.


In the first few weeks and months of Island School you may find that your child is tired as their traveling time might have increased and homework will begin in the week of September 8th. Please could you review their commitments in light of this and make sure that their activity sign up is carefully considered so that they can get the most out of opportunities but maintain a balance and not become too overtired.


We really hope that your child is settling in well and today they will bring home the second of their induction questionnaires to complete with you which is an opportunity to review their situation and ask any questions. In addition we look forward to meeting you again on September 11th at 5.30pm.

Here are some pictures from the Year 7/8 Time Out last Friday – 29 August.
