Black History Month at IESJ


Black History Month was created to focus attention on the contributions of people of colour to the world. It honours all Black people from all periods of world history. This is an opportunity for local communities to challenge racism and educate themselves and others about Black history often not taught in schools.

Fancy Dress Day

A strange mist fell upon our school this past Friday, our students and staff were not themselves..

Here is a quick sneak-peak of the crazyness. We hope to recognize them again next week, after fall break.

Health Week

Health Week

During week 39 we focused on Health. The students learned the importance of staying active and eating nutricious food. The school provided them with fruits and held different activities during lunch break.

To make Health Week a bit more challenging the students got a bingo card with all the lunch break activities. When they had finished an activity they got a stamp on the card and the class with the most stamps won! 

The challenges we had: Fotball, Scouting, Cycling, Basketball, Wear your club outfit, Lower body workout, Salsa dance, Plankan, Jumping rope, Handball, Hula hoop and Gymnastics. 

For the younger students our principal, Mr Varley, held a morning workout session as can be seen below.
