Grade 6 Performance


Many thanks for the huge support for this week’s grade 6 performance. The students are incredibly excited. I’ve gone through my many emails and have tried to compile them the best that I can. If I’ve forgotten a class, then please do let me know.

Here is our schedule:

March 1st:

09:15 – 09:25 – students come to music, get their instruments, and maybe run through song once

09:25 – 09:30 – walk down to PreK / EY wing

09:30 – 09:35 – PreK

09:35 – 09:40 – K1B

09:40 – 09:45 – K1A

09:45 – 09:50 – K2 Laurel

09:50 – 09:55 – K2 Suzi

(or, all of the K2s together… whatever you’d like)

09:55 – 10:00 – Gr1 Dean

March 2nd:

13:55 – 14:05 – students come to music, get their instruments, and maybe run through song once

14:05 – 14:10 – walk down to PYP LGR

14:10 – 14:30 – perform for combined grade 3 classes and then answer questions about how the creative cycle seems to work so far, and what decisions they made about their piece. (Arts UOI)

14:30 – 14:35 – Grace Kang Gr2

14:40 – 14:45 – Kylie Pretty Gr2 (?)

14:45 – 14:50 – Taiga Gr5

Please be flexible with the times, because we’ve never done a moving concert before, and so we don’t know how long it’ll take to keep moving classes. If any classes are happy to combine, then that’d help our schedule as well. (Just so we don’t leave classes out by accident.)

Thanks; see you tomorrow! Amy

Ready for another joke??

Space Hopping

Dear Grade 11 and 12 Students,

This week I am prototyping Space Hopping with Grade 11 and 12 students. This is an idea to provide supported independent study in the Library during time you would usually be studying in the lounge and, for Grade 12 students between mock exams.  This means that you can work independently in the Library with a member of staff available to support you. The aim is to help you be more productive and focused during school study time. Interested? The prototype will be happening at these times this week:

Monday 10.40am  Tuesday 11.45am  Thursday 8.10am

You can only attend if you would usually be in the lounge or taking an online course at this time. I will meet anyone interested in the lounge at the start of the block.

Naming Contest

We only have a few entries so far and would like some more. We have been preparing a new section of the NIS website that will feature a photo gallery and YouTube-style video gallery of events and activities that are NIS-related. However, we are in desperate need of a creative and “cool” sounding name for this part of the site that is better than “Lion-tube” or “NIS-Media” to use as a title and link for this section. Please submit your ideas to the form below and make sure to enter your name and class so that we can recognize your contribution. We will post finalists on the Daily Bulletin in March.

Please select a valid form
