As an IEGS staff team, it was important for us to come together to reconnect, reset and plan for the year ahead. I am excited about our academic and pastoral focused curriculums that are designed in a way to provide a safe and calm, stimulating learning environment for all our students.

Pavlov
Welcome everyone to a brand new year at IEGS! This term Matilda and I (Jonathan) will be the house captains of Pavlov, and we will do our absolute best to help the house in any way that we can. On the first Friday after the summer break we had our first house day where the second and third years got to finally meet the new first years. It was great to see so many new happy faces walking in the corridor and filling the empty classrooms.

The assembly which we had was our first as house captains and standing in front of over a hundred people is not as easy as some people make it look
