Class of 2020


Congratulations Class of 2020

"I would like to say a special thank you to our ISHCMC parents. In my seven years in this role, there has never been a year like this. Thank you for attending the online meetings, reading the many messages about assessments, exams, the cancellations of exams, the calculation of predicted grades and most importantly the wellbeing of your child. The heart of our wonderful community has continued to beat during Covid-19 because of your support. Your tears of joy, relief and pride show what is possible if we stay strong and kind as community. Thank you for trusting me to guide you through this complicated year."

Ms. Teresa Foard, Assistant Principal
