Grade 12

To our returning Batch of 2019 Bearcats welcome back and to those of you who are joining us this year, welcome to our energetic, excited and enthusiastic 2019 family.


My name is Ms Patrikios and in addition to teaching Chemistry and Global Politics, I am your Grade Level Coordinator (GLC) for this final year of high school. Together with your rocking elected Council (Andrea Lee, Putra Wibowo, Keith Choa, Kathleen Simba and Anjo Nagallo) and your team of Homeroom Advisors we will work to make your Grade 12 experience one to remember. We will work together to tackle our challenges and celebrate our successes.


We are a grade with a passion for creativity, activity and service and I am sure that our final year here at ISM will be one to remember. We have achieved so much in our time together and as we reflect on our time in high school and begin planning for our futures I have no doubt that we will continue to demonstrate our kindness and sense of fun here at ISM and beyond. Our work with our service partner Child Hope isn’t slowing down. In fact we are building new relationships with them and developing new ISM clubs and programs to leave as our ISM legacy. We are also now in a position to purchase an education vehicle for their mobile school program, thereby achieving an aim that we have been working towards since grade 9. It is never too late to get involved in ISM’s extensive co curricular program whether it be service, art, sports, theatre, music or special interests clubs. I encourage you to keep up your passion for co curricular activities even when the going gets tough. These are all great ways of de-stressing and maintaining that balance in life that I know you all value.

I look forward to working with you all. If you have any questions or comments please do email me at


Ms. Anthi Patrikios
Grade 12 GLC (Grade Level Coordinator)
