Secondary Academic Awards

This week at both the Junior and Senior Secondary assemblies, I was honoured to present the students who received Principal's awards for Semester 1 their certificates on the stage. It was great to have the opportunity to celebrate the hard work and commitment of these dedicated students.

I would also like to congratulate the students who received High Achievement and Honour Awards this week. As always it is wonderful to see so many SSIS students achieving academic success in Semester 1.

Mr. Cunningham, Assistant Principal – Academic, spoke to the students about the different ways to measure success and had the audience in tears with a moving video of a student in the UK who overcame his stammer to pass his oral assessment in English. It emphasized that for all of us success is measured in different ways and I hope the students took away the message that through hard work and commitment they can achieve their goals and dreams.
