Every year in the spring out IB3 students display their art pieces part of their final project. Every year we are absolutely amazed at the work and pieces our students put together! Their creativity, attention to detail and artistic ability in whichever form they choose is just outstanding.

World Book Day is a yearly event, celebrated April 23rd, organised by UNESCO as a worldwide tribute to books and reading. According to UNESCO, April 23 is a symbolic day for literature since on that date 1616 both Shakespeare, Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega died.

From all of us here at IEGS, staff and students, we want to say a big thank you to all who contributed, visited and donated during our event. It was a fun day filled with activities, concerts, crafts, games, prizes, lots of yummy treats and so much more.

Better yet we reached our set goal above and beyond, we never imagined that we would have been able to raise so much and it is thanks to all of you who contributed, so a big thank you!
