Introduction Week in IST Secondary
We were glad to see so many new faces among students, as well as staff.
This introduction week was about getting to know each other, and preparing for learning through a myriad of activities. Such activities included various workshops, for example cooking, basketball, and board games. Students were free to choose a workshop, in which they wanted to spend the morning. Within the workshops, students were sorted into groups. Later in the afternoon, these groups competed against each other for a grand prize. Another important activity during the introduction week was the house sorting. This year is the first year that IST Secondary will implement a house system! The whole school gathered for an exciting ceremony, where all students were randomly assigned to one of our four houses, named after greek mythological creatures. Following the sorting, the first house meeting took place, during which the topics of house logos, shirts, slogans, and mascots were all addressed.
I think I can speak for all of us when I say that this introduction week was a huge success!
