I hope the 2021/22 school year brings you many opportunities for change and
WOW is all we can say for our 2021 IHC Cross Country! What an amazing event, being outdoors and enjoying a healthy walk or run on the track. Our students there supporting each other and their house, seeing everyone come together and coordinate to make the day a really great one.
Our house captains did an amazing job at bringing their house together, getting them ready for the 5k race and being supportive and enthusiastic the whole way!
