In an attempt to ignite the scientific curiosity among students of the school, 5 11th graders came up with the idea of a newsletter that focuses specifically on STEM.

The school community of students, teachers and parents have grown closer together as they strive to support each other in every kind of situation. "The Senior School Express" is an endeavour to strengthen this connection and share all the latest news, views, learnings and achievements of our HIXS community.
