AISK students, faculty, and staff come together as a community, celebrate our unique school culture, and show our Hurricane pride through these much-loved annual traditions.
AISK’s signature sporting event, was born in 2010 to develop relationships with other international schools in the region through sports. A six-a-side soccer tournament for boys and girls was established, where we invited schools from the Caribbean and our immediate surrounding community. AISK has held the event every year since except 2020 and 2021.
The AISK SoccerFeva Tournament strengthens the bonds between students, sporting and educational institutions from across the Caribbean region. It goes further than athletics, as families share homes, schools share passions and many friendships created now span the region and the globe thanks to this event.
Adopt a Beach Cleanup
AISK would join with other participating schools the annual beach cleanup worldwide, and sponsored by Jamaica Environmental Trust. After a few annual cleanups the AISK students wanted to do more and chose to adopt one beach and clean it several times a year. This effort is organized both by students as CAS projects twice per year and the GIN Club once per year.
TennisFeva became part of the SportsFeva program starting in 2012. AISK hosts this inter school tennis competition for all local schools. It’s very well attended and enjoyed by all.
Blue Mountain Peak Hike
Standing 2,256 m (7,402 ft) above sea level is the majestic Blue Mountain Range. Hurricanes have climbed to the peak which is an overnight trek arriving at the summit to witness the magnificent sunrise. This milestone is an achievement for our students who look forward to this coming-of-age tradition at AISK.
GIN Club Lock-In
The AISK GIN Club hosts an annual LOCKIN every fall on the school grounds. The LOCKIN is a traditional fundraising event where students spend the night at school engaging in a host of activities for different ages and interests, while building friendships and making memories. All activities are student planned but supervised by adults. Some of the more popular activities include playing games, watching movies, roasting marshmallows by the bonfire and even showing off their gaming skills with their friends. All proceeds go towards our initiatives that are geared at making the world a better place. The experiences are priceless and students will talk about their school sleepover for years to come.
Middle School Holywell Hike
This is a one day trip, taken by interested middle school students, along with staff members. Holywell is a national park within the Blue and John Crow Mountains and provides a scenic trek in the lush, cool mountains overlooking Kington.
Spirit Week is an annual tradition in the Spring. Each day of that week is designated for students to dress within a particular theme, whether pajamas, as a character in a book, favorite superhero, from a particular time period or just general throwback or in a red carpet outfit. It’s a lot of fun for the entire school community and highly anticipated by all.
