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.

Music is a form of artistic expression that when used in its true intent has the rare capability to reach out to a crowd - regardless whether big or small, strangers or friends - and produce a rush of vast, raw emotion within every single person in the room. Intense feelings of passion, fascination and inspiration go hand in hand with a carefully constructed piece of music delivered with true authenticity on stage.

Chess. 16 pieces. One king, one queen, two rooks, two bishops, two knights and eight pawns. It is a board game which not only requires intellect, but the ability to think strategically and quick. Chess IHC is without a doubt the most intense inter house competition, as players compete in a classic Berger tournament, in which contestants meet all other contestants in turn.
