ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY celebrated its 15th year with a special Founders’ Day ceremony on September 13, 2019. The school’s three founders – Dr. Dan White, Judy White, and Larry Caster – and members from the Board of Trustees, attended the all-school event held on campus.
The ceremony included songs by the students and performances by the IPA Ukulele Club. Guests heard messages from Gerald Teramae, Head of School, and Dr. White about the history and future of IPA. The three founders were presented with a framed portrait, which will be on permanent display in the lobby of the Administrative office. All the students enjoyed birthday cupcakes frosted in blue with gold and silver sprinkles – our IPA colors!
As part of our 15 year celebration, we invited three Grade 4 students to sit down to talk with IPA’s founders about the school, bringing together our past and our future. Watch the short videos from Kyler ’28 and Dr. Dan White, Oliver ’28 and Larry Caster, and Winleth ’28 and Judy White below.
