IPS establishes partnerships with other mission-driven organizations that value and support quality educational opportunities that align closely with our school’s mission.
IPS has been pen-pals with the Royal Seeds Orphanage in Ghana for 5 years. On May 24, 2014, three IPS kids completed a 55km relay-triathlon that they conceived themselves. Spanning from Deep Cove to Bowen Island, the fundraiser exceeded their initial goal of raising $10,000 to help their pen-pals attend school beyond Grade 9.
In the 2008-2009 school year we worked with the Vancouver Aquarium and sent our students to AquaSchool, an experientially rich program that extended regular classroom learning and Ministry prescribed learning outcomes by letting students work directly with marine biologists and other environmental scientists employed by the aquarium.
