The Crane, 21 January 2024

Welcome from James Steward

It has been a challenging week in terms of health for our HIS community. Close to 50% of our students were absent and many teachers were also affected. All classes will resume on Monday, though some families may still be in recovery. To everyone, please get well soon!

Good luck to our DP students as they move into Mock Exams this week. As well, we hope to reschedule our basketball game against MC Perry. Please stay tuned on that front. 

The PTA Wolfpack continues to stir up excitement and a full slate of events is about to come your way. The aroma of muffins and curry is in the air as they prepare their next delicious events! 

See you soon at HIS!
