The Student Council has two members from each class, a boy and a girl, starting from Grade 6. The office bearers of the Student Council are the Speaker, the Vice President and the President who are all elected from the final year students. Prefectorial Body The prefects are also elected by the students in a democratic way. Every year, the office bearers are the Headboy, Headgirl, Vice Headboy, Vice Headgirl, President of Student Council, Vice President of Student Council, Speaker of Student Council, President of the Round Square, Sports Captain(Girls) and Sports Captain(Boys). There is also a body of prefects, whose number vary around 16. The academic year 2007-08 had 17 prefects, in addition to the 10 office bearers. Sports Facilities The school has a grass football pitch. It also has a basketball court and a cricket pitch. The school hall has two badminton courts and can also accommodate six table tennis tables. Students are free to use all these facilities during their Physical Education classes or after school hours, in the evening. The Houses The students of the school are organised in 4 Houses, which compete against each other in intra-school tournaments, which include sporting, quizzing etc. The houses are named after significantly famous places in Oman like Muscat, Nizwa, Sohar, and Sur. History Originally 8 houses competed for the prestigious House of the Year award. However, the 4 of the 8 houses have ceased to exist. The houses in alphabetical order preceded by their respective colours are as follows:      Ibri (ceased)      Khasab (ceased)      Muscat      Nizwa      Salalah (ceased)      Sohar      Sur      Seeb (ceased) The House Structure and Governance A 'House' comprises a quarter of the Senior Student population and a quarter of the Teaching Staff. 'Senior student' is the educational establishment collective term given for the students enrolled in the Sixth Standard (or Sixth Grade) upwards until the Twelfth Standard (or Twelfth Grade). The house hierarchy is as follows (in descending order): Head House Master and Head House Mistress House Masters and House Mistresses Male House Captain and Female House Captain Team Captains for the respective teams House Members House Masters and House Mistresses Each 'House' is governed by the respective Senior Head Housemaster and Head Housemistress, with the individual specialist tasks (such as Debates, Quizzes etc.) often delegated to the Vice Housemaster(s) and Vice Housemistress(es) mutually acknowledged to be the most experienced in the concerned field. The House Captain A House Captain, or the Student Head, is often democratically elected by the most senior students and subjective to discretionary approval by the respective Heads of the House. A House Captain is often seen as the person responsible for leading the House up the points table, thereby ensuring that the House procures a strong position and establishes itself as an Award Winner. The House Team Captain The role of Team Captain, again undergoes a similar democratic treatment with a few minor changes. The respective teams elect their Team Captain. For instance, the members of the Football Team elect their Football Team Captain. The House Captains and/or the House Masters/Mistresses may nominate a candidate but that is as far as it goes. The electoral process is based on mutual acknowledgement by the concerned House Team members. It must be remembered that unlike the House Captain, the powers associated with the role of the Team Captain is very limited and ends once the respective event ends. Nevertheless, the Team Captain has complete freedom to conduct and lead his or her team in any manner he or she wishes, so long as it is in the spirit of healthy competition and in the interests of the House. The Team Captain (although under no obligation to do so) may or may not accept suggestions or tactical advice from the House Captain(s) and/or House Masters/Mistresses, and officially has the last say in developing the strategies and tactics that will be adopted by his or her respective team. The House Members The House Membership is strictly reserved for 'Senior Students' (students in Sixth Grade and above). All students are expected to take part in an event of their choice, although this is not mandatory. Nevertheless extending support to their houses in times of competition is greatly recognised and immensely appreciated by all the teams. Student Support Every student within the House are assigned an Academic Tutor who will be responsible for the student's academic performance, extracurricular achievements and all other issues of concern that would generally benefit the student's welfare both on-campus and off-campus, thereby ensuring a great educational experience during their stay at school. Selection Criteria The selection criteria for the choice of the Heads of the Houses are based on seniority. The selection criteria for the Junior Head Masters and Mistresses is almost always based on the individual's skills and experience within a particular field. For Example: Language Teachers within a particular House usually take on the roles of coaching the Language Debate House Team. Assembly The assemblies are usually conducted everyday of the week except Tuesdays because Inspection takes place on that day. Each week , 1 class is assigned the task of conducting it and at the end , the principal speaks about the values and the major events / important values / special guests arriving or anything that needs to be changed or anything that has to take place. G.K. (general knowledge) test On the last Tuesday of every month, there is a G.K. test on that month's current and school affairs. There is one mark per question, for up to a maximum of 15 marks. Department of Information Technology (DoIT) ISG was one of the first schools to incorporate an independent IT department, called the Department of Information Technology. This allows the school to augment the students existing syllabus with computer education. The department has 164 workstations which are spread over 3 labs. The department is also responsible for maintaining the school's website. School Song and Motto The school song was written and composed by Mr. Denzel. A.V.Prince. The school's official motto is "Strive for the Best". Quiz Teams The school has produced teams that have won national and international quiz competitions. In 1998, the school won the Times of Oman Quiz and went on to win the All-Asia Bournvita Quiz Contest held in India. The school conducts general knowledge quizzes every month to raise the awareness of world affairs among students. Hall of Principals Mr. B S Bhatnagar (1991–2006) Mr. G.
