SSIS celebrated its 20th birthday in September, with a party for all their students and staff. On 3rd September 1996 SSIS opened its doors for the first time. Over the last 20 years the school has achieved so much: it has grown from only 18 to 1300 students spread across our two campuses, increased from 9 to more than 200 highly qualified teachers, sent graduates to top universities around the world, taught children performance skills and excellence at playing musical instruments, and competed in thousands of sports events each year on national and international levels in various disciplines. The students and staff came together to celebrate all the moments that form the history of the school, with a birthday cake and a musical performance by the school orchestra. Every student received two cupcakes to mark the occasion and to share this special day with their family members.
