Due to the maintenance of the soccer field (half year maintenance, filling particles), we will close the soccer field during the winter break.

Student Missing Advisory

Dear advisory teachers,

Tomorrow we will have 55 students performing in the winter assembly. The students cannot attend advisory because they will be assembling their instruments, tuning, and getting into position.

  • Please bring your Veracross-accessed device to assembly and take note of whether your advisory students are on stage.
  • Students working tech may need to see their advisors first (I’m not sure of their protocols) because they will be backstage and thus you might not see them present.

Attached is a list of the students performing on stage (please see Sam Brown regarding tech crew).

Winter Assembly Performers

Become Courageous – Week 18

How might we create opportunities for the NIS community to be courageous?

In week 18, a stage environment in front of the library will have the following play/experiment/learn items:

  • Monday – Hula Hoops
  • Tuesday – Simple DJ equipment
  • Wednesday – Juggling Balls
  • Thursday – Art Easels and Supplies
  • Friday – Piano

Courageous learners and creators are invited to enjoy and interact with any articles on the stage.

They will be filmed with the purpose for review by the prototype team to see if activities should be scaled or ditched.

 

This prototype is inspired by Sugata Mitra’s 1999 Hole in the Wall experiment.

Computers were placed in a slum in Kalkaji, Delhi to enable

unsupervised access, informal, public, self-guided and collaborative work

to synergize through creative and courageous play.

 

Enjoy,

The Courageous Prototype Team

G11 & 12 Lounge

It is not nice to see a fantastic initiative of festive decorations ruined by careless people leaving their mess around. Yesterday I had to clean the mess left in the lounge at the end of the day. This is a reminder that your exit privileges at lunch can be lost. G11 & 12 are not allowed to bring food from outside into the lounge (or the school!).  The reason is simple we have a no nuts policy and you cannot guaranty the food you purchase outside is nut free. So NO MacDonald’s or  fried rice or any food from outside please. If you are using plates and cutlery from the cafeteria please return them.

For your information, the graffiti wall will be cleaned over the holidays.

Ray of Light Cambodia is after old laptops and mobile phones

Dear all,

Please see the attached poster.  The Underwood’s will be spending time at an orphanage in Phnom Penh over the winter break.  Old laptops are needed as Ati and Ato will be setting up a media centre to help the children there improve their learning opportunities.  Mobile phones are needed to help older students get part time jobs to support their own learning.
