International Gala 2022

International Gala: Travel Auction & Preview Party 2022 

On April 23, the ISI community was reunited for the 2022 International Gala. For more than 25 years the Gala has been a highlight on the ISI calendar and this year’s event did not disappoint. After a two year break due to the pandemic, the Gala returned, refreshed and with an extra special reason to celebrate - the debut of the Chen Family Lower School.

More than 350 guests representing families and friends of the school were welcomed into the new building to preview the spaces and celebrate the successful completion of the ONE ISI campaign. Two decades in the making, the Chen Family Lower School is the realization of a dream to unify the school community. Made possible by the collective commitment of the ISI community, the Chen Family Lower School is a tangible demonstration of what is made possible through philanthropic giving.

The small but mighty ISI Girls Varsity Tennis team completed a successful spring season! The team spent the season working hard to improve, and every member played a crucial role in bringing home team victories. 

“My favorite memory from this season was our first team win,” Grade 9 player Veronica Sabau said. “Since we only had four people on the team, we needed each of us to win our matches in order to have a team win. This made winning extra special.”

This year, students built a multi-use court for basketball, soccer, and volleyball. They leveled the ground, mixed and poured concrete, created drainage systems, and finished the edges to make it safe for children. They also helped construct a well, cleaned up the school’s exterior and landscaping, and cleaned up the school’s fruit garden, which was previously unusable. Timmy Club members also brought basketballs and soccer balls for the community to keep, donated by the Pacers, Fever, and Indy Eleven teams
