What an incredible event, the IHC Song is one that both students and staff at IEGS really look forward to each year. To be able to sing in such harmony, acapella, is just amazing. The amount of practice, work and dedication that goes into this event is just phenomenal. Seeing an entire house, first years to third years, come together, cooperate and sing is always special.

Every year the traditional IHC Song takes place, where each house chooses a song that they sing acapella. This is an event where the whole house is involved, with around 200 students getting on stage and singing together. It is quite powerful and impressive! Since IEGS cannot hold 700 students and staff in the aula, the whole school makes its way over to Åså Gymnaisum down the road, and prepares for the event! It’s a great show of spirit, teamwork and of course talent too!

There is something special about dance. It gives people goosebumps, it excites people and makes them want to join in but it also brings out feelings that they didn’t even know they had. And for the dancers there is no difference. For them this is their creative outlet, it is their freedom and this is their way of telling a story. There is no surprise that this is something that makes this a beloved inter house competition that both the partitioners and the audience are waiting all year long for it.
