Mentor, inspire, share your passion
We invite IGS parents, caregivers and Alumni to submit expressions of interest to participate in our mentoring program to help us to equip our students to be world ready. There are two options to give back to our Year 11 students as they embark upon their journey into Year 12:
Take on an IGS student for a holiday work placement, for as little as a day or as long as a few weeks—you decide what suits you best! IGS will provide a Certificate of Currency to cover all insurance needs for students in work place environments. The program allows us to support and nurture our students as they transition from school to university or work.
Our mentoring program takes place during House Assembly time (Wednesdays from 10–10:40am). We invite community members to come and speak to our students about their profession in a small group, allowing our students to explore various career opportunities.
We welcome people from all professions, including but not limited to: mathematics, music, science, technology, the arts and design. This initiative responds to one of our areas of action: to inspire meaningful engagement with local, national and global initiatives.
Please contact Community Engagement to register your interest for one or both of these programs. Please include your name, phone, email, a brief description of your profession and what you may be able to offer.
IGS Alumni Language Exchange Bursary
(not tax deductible)
Our Alumni Language Exchange Bursary was established as a gift to the School by the students of the graduating Class of 2014, as their legacy to IGS, and in thanks for the education they received here. This gift will allow a dedicated senior language student, who would otherwise be unable to do so, to go on one of IGS’s exchanges. Our first bursary will be awarded in 2016. It is hoped the bursary can be continued through further generous donations.
IGS Indigenous Scholarship Fund
(fully tax deductible)
Through your generous donation to our Indigenous Scholarship Fund you will enable us to give an IGS education to local Indigenous children. Please help us to provide this opportunity for more young Indigenous Australians. We currently have 16 students studying as part of the program. Our first graduate completed her studies at IGS in 2013 and has commenced her university degree.
