Image: On Tour: Year 8 prefects guide our students around the building
On Wednesday 26th August, all the parents of our students at IES Kista were invited to the school. The evening session included a speech from our Principal Mr. McGowan, a tour of the school building by our Year 8 prefects as well as the opportunity to meet their childrens' mentors for the next school year.
In Mr. McGowan's speech, he highlighted many of the fantastic new developments of our newly developed school building.
Establishing a strong connection between the parents and mentors is vital at IES Kista. Throughout the year, mentors will be greeting their students as they start and leave school each day, and ensuring their mobile phones are locked away safely in their home classroom. Furthermore mentors monitor the achievement and well being of each of their students, and keep parents updated through monthly phone calls.
