SIS 40th Birthday Celebration, 5th September

September 5th 1977 was the very first day of school for students at South Island. This year on Sept 5th we are going to have a whole day of birthday celebrations to mark the opening of the school 40 years ago.

All students will be involved in our party and the activities are being planned by our Y13 students, the Student Council and our MaD council.  We will be having a huge birthday cake at the start of the day and a whole school photo. The activities being organized have all been chosen by the students themselves. Activities include ‘SIS has got Talent’ Show, Art and Design Activities, A History Quiz, Time Capsule and a Scavenger Hunt.

After Lunch the whole school will be taking part in a Sponsored Walk because we feel that our SIS Values are best illustrated by a giving birthday celebration. A route has been marked out taking students down to Repulse Bay. Grate care will be taken with stewarding and Police will be aware.  Staff and students will all be taking part and we have set them the challenge of getting as many sponsors as possible. We want every child to raise at least $100. The money raised will be going towards our pledge to the Jumpstart Kindergarten / Family Academy fund in the Philippines.  Sponsor forms has been given out in Assembly on Friday.
