On May 2nd, 2014, members of the GSIS community collectively gathered to remember the lives lost in the Sewol ferry tragedy. A memorial service was held at the end of the school day so students from upper secondary, lower secondary, elementary school, faculty, staff and other community members could take time to reflect, pray and mourn for our brothers and sisters in Danwon high school in Ansan and the families affected by the ferry tragedy. The memorial began with an opening prayer by our upper secondary principal Ms. Tiffeney Brown. Student representatives from the two divisions, a representative from the Korean staff and a representative from the faculty also offered up prayers while accompanied by hymns of worship.
We would like to continue to extend our most heartfelt grief and condolence to the families who continue to suffer and ask the Lord to bring peace and comfort into their lives.
