The vision in creating IFS was to restore balance to the lives of sporting families. By incorporating top level coaching into the school day, parents are freed of the after-school training run-around, allowing more time for the family.
This balanced approach carries through into everything we do. It’s not just about academics and it’s not just about football. At IFS we feel strongly that we are raising the whole person – from the healthy food in our café, to the healthy rhythm of the school day, the school term and the school year – we’re all about your child’s total health and wellbeing.
Student welfare is paramount to us. Each week every student participates in a mentor session – a regular opportunity to discuss issues of importance to them. Fortnightly one-on-one sessions with mentors and coaches ensure students identify the things they are enjoying, where they are doing well, where they have issues and positive strategies to address these areas.
