It is our absolute pleasure to welcome you to the annual IASAS
Cultural Convention (Debate and Forensics).
Over the past months, our High School Vice Principal, Mrs. Doreen
McCarthy, our High School Activities Coordinator, Ms. Rachel Nolan, our Head of Social Studies Mrs. Jennifer Olmsted and their
hard working team made up from both our faculty and student body, have crafted
a magnificent program of events which aims to place our IASAS students at the
very heart of proceedings. Facilities
have been prepared, judges have been trained, programs have been established
and protocols sharpened in order to make this event the very best it can be.
As with all IASAS events, the success of an event is not purely
a result of the quality of planning and preparation. It is also heavily influenced by the positive
attitudes and spirit of engagement that each delegate brings to the
sessions. I encourage you all to embrace
this event with all the energy, passion and skill that have enabled you to be
chosen to represent your schools. I can
guarantee that this commitment will be rewarded many times over by enjoyment,
success and amazing memories.
For the next few days, our campus is your campus. Please avail yourselves of all we have to
offer and don’t hesitate to call on us for anything you need. You are our esteemed guests and we are here
to serve. As well, our host families are
very excited to meet you and learn more about your world. Take the time to interact frequently with
your host families and add even more richness to this IASAS experience.
To all delegates, best wishes for a wonderful
convention. May your thoughts be clear,
your voices strong, your wit razor sharp and your minds open.
