IEGS celebrates 10 years of having the House System within our school. Belonging to a House at IEGS encourages community, team-spirit, and a unique sense of togetherness. Through the House system, our teachers encourage our students to develop skills such as leadership, teamwork, competitiveness and resilience. So as we begin the Spring Term of 2019, we continue to celebrate House spirit with a range of inter house competitions (IHC).

We spent a week with European youth just like us, debating important issues that affect the EU and us everyday. Over the course of a week, we learned how to draft legislation, reach consensus on difficult issues, how to debate, how to speak in public and how to understand the other side of an argument despite feeling very strongly for your side.
