At SSIS, students are regularly informed about how to be academically honest, and also the consequences of misleading or unfair behaviour.

These meetings are a great way for parents to get to meet the Head of Grade and to get a sense of what the year will bring for their students. Heads of Grade introduced themselves and key SSIS personnel along with their roles in relation to each grade level. They also discussed logistical issues like attendance procedures, dress code and checking grades.
