Guest Speakers MYP4&5

It has been a busy couple of months for MYP4 and MYP5 during their mentor lessons. As part of their careers and university guidance programme pupils have had different ISG parents talking about their career paths and life journeys. Pupils have learnt about the Canterbury earthquake disaster in New Zealand in 2010 and 2016 from the perspective of the New Zealand Red Cross as well as the perspective of a mother (Jolie Wills) of pupils at ISG.
