On Friday, February 3, 2023, secondary students got festive. From 3:30 pm to 8 pm, the HIS community held a Winter Gala, which featured various food dishes handmade by each grade. 

After not hosting the Winter Gala for a few years, secondary students rediscovered their cooking skills by making and eating food for the dinner event. Students communicated with their classmates to make their chosen main and side dishes efficiently. Each grade prepared different kinds of food, such as curry, quesadilla, crepes, chicken wings, and salad.

Up in the fourth-floor gym, a cafeteria was set up with a buffet lined with food in the back. From 6:30-7:30 pm, students' stomachs enjoyed the hard work of the students, many of whom sampled each dish on the buffet line. The planning began in homerooms before the winter break, with shopping and cooking mostly happening on the day.

The payoff for this was evident in the delicious quality of the meals. After everyone finished dinner, the student council hosted a "Guess the song title” game and a Kahoot about some of HIS's teachers. During this event, many students rediscovered what it meant to be a Husky, through exploring their creative side and experiencing the mix of cultures unique to HIS.
