New ‘Pulse’ wellbeing tool
IGS has recently engaged the services of Educator Impact to assist us with monitoring and attending to our students’ wellbeing.
Each student in Years 3 to 12 will soon receive a weekly email from Educator Impact called Pulse. This email will prompt the student to complete a “check-in” of five or six questions, a process taking about five minutes.
One personal response each week will assist IGS to follow up if a child indicates they need some help.
Other responses will be made anonymously and will help IGS respond to more general feedback.

Re-activating the IGS 1000-Point Challenge!
Families who were with IGS during the 2020 lockdown will remember our popular IGS 1000-Point Challenge, designed to promote active lifestyles for the IGS Community.
Head of PDHPE, Sport and Outdoor Education Simon Board relaunched 1000-Point Challenge this week.
“Throughout the term, we will be taking part in the 1000-Point Challenge to keep you and your families active while at home. See the activities and form to register your points here.”
Details can also be found at the foot of each Canvas page (Years 3 to 12) and on Seesaw (Kindergarten to Year 2).
“For each year group and community group, we will have a leaderboard and prizes for the final overall winner.
“Remember to register the points you have completed using the form at the top of the page. We thank the 2020 PDHPE and Sport team for creating this program, and we look forward to seeing our whole community involved in the 1000-Point Challenge!”
Are you receiving all IGS emails?
As we enter Term 3 during stay at home orders, please ensure you are receiving all email updates from the School.
As some email accounts automatically filter bulk messages, please check your promotion, junk and spam email folders regularly, and mark IGS messages as “important” or “not spam”.
If you need assistance, or you have changed your contact details, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and stay safe.
IGS is following advice from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) and NSW Health on how to best manage hygiene and wellbeing in a school setting. View more IGS COVID Safe details here.
