Being conducted at the Atrium of Supermal Pakuwon Indah, on December 17, 2015, IVY Elementary and Middle School-Christmas Celebration was jazzed up with eight performances including choirs, simple dances and mandarin vocal group.
Besides those performances, Ms. Juli has made the celebration much livelier by inviting parents to dance as well as to pray for their children. Before she did so, she had delivered short preaching about love and also encouraged IVY-students to be grateful as GOD has granted teachers, parents and grandparents into their lives. Moreover, she led those children to pray for their beloveds by stating: “Your parents, grandparents and teachers, they are not growing younger and stronger, but they are getting much older, weaker, and sometimes they may have problem with their health, that is the reason why we need to show our love by praying for those people”.
By the same token, the folksy design of the stage held children spellbound due to its vivid description of a white christmas. (Caleb)

Merawat tanaman bukan tugas pak kebun saja.
Sejak awal berdiri pada 2004, Ivy School punya konsep pendidikan yang unik. Tidak seperti sekolah nasional lain yang berbahasa Indonesia, Ivy School justru menggunakan bahasa Inggris sebagai pengantarnya. Murid dilatih aktif berbahasa Inggris selama berada di lingkungan sekolah, baik di dalam maupun luar kelas. Materi pembelajaran juga tidak murni memakai kurikulum nasional, melainkan di-combine dengan berbagai literatur pendidikan pilihan internasional.
Ivy sendiri merupakan akronim Indonesia’s Victorious Youth atau Generasi Pemenang Indonesia. Nama Ivy diambil dari daun yang tumbuh hijau di segala musim. Ivy bisa hidup di manapun, mulai selokan jalan sampai istana kerajaan. Tanaman ini merambat liar ke atas, melingkari pilar-pilar rumah dan melambangkan kehangatan keluarga. Ia juga sering ditanam dalam pot dan digantung sebagai simbol persahabatan.
