House event #1 – Fall Sports Day
On Friday dedicated teams of students in the IAS orienteering run. A full complement of mental agility and physical fitness is necessary to succeed in this event. Students must interpret the map information correctly and check in at all points in the correct order and in the fastest time. D12 completed a shorter route than D18 students but no less challenging.
The winning team was led by Nurgi (Grade 12) who is a veteran of our orienteering events. He led the largest team of students and recorded a time that was 10 minutes shorter than the second-place team. He is a great example of a student that has engaged positively with events like our Sport’s Days and whose leadership skills have grown as a result.
We would like to thank all our participating students for their competitive spirit and commitment during our Fall Sports Day

D18 Class integration trips:
6th Grade integration trip – Escape Room
On the 19th of September, the 6th graders went to the escape room “Emergency Exit” located near Galeria Mokotów. Once there, their team spirit and problems resolution skills were tested to escape a prison, a castle in the middle age or the pyramids of Egypt. While the four teams might now have managed to escape their respective room, they managed to forge new bonds despite the challenges and got the opportunity to know each other better.
After such an eventful morning, it was time for a well-deserved lunch break, which happened in the food court of Galeria Mokotów. There, everyone was bound to find something to satisfy their hunger with. Sushi, pizza or fast food, everyone was up for a nice treat before slowly but surely going back to IAS.
8th Grade – Escape Room
On 23rd of September, grade 8 was on a field trip. The students were at Escape Room Wyjście Awaryjne, where they had to solve mystery riddles to exit the place. It helped strengthen ties among students, who had a chance to spend time together working as a team. Later they had lunch at the mall and safely got back to IAS.
9th Grade – Laser Tag
The 9th graders visited a Laser tag park called “Blast Arena” on the 22nd of September. Two teams were formed. Laser tag and exciting arcade games were shared between the two groups. Students sat down together and happily shared a variety of lunches as the trip came to a close.
11th Grade – Escape Room
The 11th graders went on the school trip to visit three escape rooms with intriguing riddles about the French clergyman Cardinal Richelieu’s conspiracy, the Olympic Games of demigods and the gods of the Greek pantheon, and the sci-fi themed one, anchored somewhere in the universe. In each room, students had to outsmart decoys, sharpening their senses and deduction skills to leave the rooms. The trip was a perfect opportunity to improve students’ cognitive and teamwork skills, strengthen bonds between classmates and show off their inquiring nature.
