Hello IGBIS Community,
After gathering community interest for fitness and wellbeing options a few weeks ago, we are excited to bring a number of options to campus starting next week! Please read the attached schedule carefully as each instructor has slightly different payment and signup processes via the links embedded in the schedule itself.
Fitness classes for zumba, yoga and HIIT training are able to be joined individually on an ad hoc basis. For the mindfulness course, attendees must attend all eight weeks on Wednesdays beginning 29 March 2023; signups for that course are now open at the links in the schedule as well. Each instructor has class minimums and maximums so sign up today!
Yours in supporting the entire community’s well-being as one of our pillars,

As I was speaking to staff and students this week, many were fresh and bright as they had appreciated the school holiday last week. I hope you all feel rested too and were able to enjoy some family time.
This has been a busy week for many of our Grade 4 and Grade 5 students as they may have been involved with both sporting competitions and rehearsals for the upcoming production Phantom of the Music room.
On Wednesday, our U11 Boys and Girls football teams were involved in the KLSL tournament held at IGBIS. The competition for both teams was tough. The boys were pitted against more experienced school teams and unfortunately were unable to win any of their games. At least they now know how much they need to develop as players to reach their next level.
The Girl’s games were very close with 3 out of the 4 games decided by a single goal. Fortunately, IGBIS were on the winning side of those games with a 3 – 0 win in their penultimate game securing the KLSL title.
The Phantom of the Music Room rehearsals has been in full swing this week and continuing on Saturday and next week. We are all looking forward to seeing the performances.
You should have received an announcement via Toddle by now about the next season of after-school activities for Kindergarten – Grade 5 students. Below is a summary of the information,

For people who grew up with yearbooks, they are an annual right of passage that you look forward to; for others, they are fun, but not a part of the end-of-the-school-year experience you had as a student. A lot of conversation has been happening behind the scenes debating and discussing the financial and environmental costs of printing +400 copies of a 150-page yearbook for all grades every year, and as a result, in conjunction with the Yearbook Committee—the wonderful team that created this year’s version of the annual book—we are going to make a change:
