TEDxYouth@NIS is happening on March 3rd, 2018 at Nanjing International School. Our goal is to provide a platform where the people of Nanjing can share their ideas worth spreading in either English or Mandarin.

Our speakers last year shared their path to forgiveness, challenged our perception of the hijab, showed us the beauty of dissonant sounds, and much more. You can check out last year’s TEDxYouth@NIS talks here.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, write to us at

We hope to hear from you!

Child Protection Officer

This year we have a new position in school, that of Child Protection Officer. I currently hold this position. Recently I attended a CIS Child Protection Workshop along with our three Counsellors. Following this we are building on the great work that was done last year to strengthen the systems we have at NIS in order to safeguard all of the children and students in our care.

If you have any concerns regarding child protection, the first person to report this to should be the Child Protection Officer or the Deputy Director – Learning.



MS/US Assemblies

Good Morning, Middle School and Upper School students!

If you would like to be part of the MS/US Assembly agenda, such as, being the Master of Ceremony (MC), or perform, or do a skit,  or ride a unicycle, or perfect your speech and debate skills, or lead a mindfulness, or simply make an announcement, or anything else we are not thinking of…Contact Mrs. Galaty or Ms. Bezzerides.  They are your Assembly go-to people.

Have a great week!
