From the Primary Principal

Welcome to IICS!

IICS is a diverse and caring community that offers a rich and dynamic curriculum to all students. We emphasize strong relationships based on trust and mutual respect, in order to cultivate an environment and culture that support and enable all students, staff and community members to learn and thrive.

The Primary school has a robust and well articulated learning program that supports the social, emotional and academic development of our students. We deliver the IB Primary Years Programme from Early Years 3 through to Grade 6. The Early Years classrooms and play spaces at both Hisar and Marmara campuses are designed to promote active, play-based learning for our youngest students. Our Primary classrooms and collaborative spaces facilitate interactive hands-on inquiry learning. We emphasize strong core skills, and our use of technology promotes rich learning and the importance of digital citizenship in today’s world. The after school activity program offers a wide range of interesting and developmentally appropriate learning experiences for our students.

Teacher collaboration and ongoing professional growth is at the core of our success. IICS staff work together to constantly refine and improve our programs, to ensure high student engagement through a well differentiated program of instruction. Students are challenged, engaged, and encouraged to take action from their learning. We work closely with parents and encourage them to engage with their childrens’ learning through SeeSaw, our digital portfolio platform that is one of the ways student learning is acknowledged, shared and celebrated at IICS.

Whether you are a returning or prospective parent, I encourage you to browse our website, and visit our school in person. You will feel the positive, welcoming tone that characterizes IICS, and see high-quality learning experiences taking place throughout the school. Please contact me anytime if you have questions or would like to know more. My door is always open!

Sincerely,
Rob Grantham, Primary Principal
