Iese was very involved in the wider school community, as a member of the 1st 15 rugby team, the senior boys' volleyball team, the Samoan performance group and the band Island Time. He is also very involved in the band and youth group at his church.
"Iese is a quiet, unassuming person who is a great supporter of both his peers and his teachers. He always gleans the most out of every learning experience and he also demonstrates real maturity in all he does, "said Deputy Principal Marion Tuite.
