ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY held its first-ever virtual Club Fest last month. Translating the traditional format of Club Fest into a virtual one took a lot of planning, organizing, and creativity by the five members of the Executive Council, but the success of the event made it all worth it.
ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY’s students give back to their community in many ways throughout the year, but IPA’s annual Make a Difference Day (MADD) provides an opportunity for the entire Secondary student body to contribute to the community in a meaningful way.
Two IPA sophomores knew they wanted to help when they saw the devastating wildfires in Australia earlier this year. They came up with the idea for a fundraiser called “Change for Change” to support the Australian National Parks Service. With the help of the IPA student body, they raised a lot of money to help the affected wildlife.
Three ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY seniors saw a need in the community and rose to the challenge in a creative and meaningful way. With the entire state of Hawai’i staying at home in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, they were inspired to help others spend their time creatively, so they created the Quarantine Art Club – a website with free, original coloring pages they create for anyone to download and enjoy.
IPA senior Corbin Lofton ’20 is headed to UIndy in the Fall. The IPA swimmer, and 2020 ILH Champion in the 100 Butterfly, signed his National Letter of Commitment to the University of Indianapolis today in a special ceremony.
