ACAMIS Speech and Debate

Join ACAMIS Speech and Debate in Dulwich Beijing on January 26 and 27th. A student-initiated event!!!!

Deadline to express interest is Wednesday, October 31st. Please see Mr Hammond.

Cost to be determined.

The Debate for Change Tournament (DCT) is a student-initiated event designed to bridge service and debating together. Through a knock-on debate competition, we hope to raise awareness for three local charities: HOPE (Horses Offering People Enrichment), the Yunnan Project and MCF (Migrant Children’s Foundation). As DCT is not-for-profit and has the support of the ACAMIS Service Learning Grant, all funds will go towards running costs and local charities. At the end of the competition, the winning teams will be able to choose which charity the money raised from the competition will go towards. In this way, students will grow as critical thinkers, collaborate as debaters, and gain awareness of our local community while interacting with fundraising in a more personal and engaging way.

Email about NIS account being “Hacked”

Good Morning,

If you have received an email starting like this:

Hello!

My nickname in darknet is hermie59 {or some version of this}.
I hacked this mailbox more than six months ago,
through it I infected your operating system with a virus (trojan) created by me and have been monitoring you for a long time.

So, your password from {yourusernamehere}@staff.nanjing-school.com is pac123456

Don’t panic. Contact us in the IT Department, and rest easy knowing that this is the latest in a string of increasingly high-tech phishing scams designed to get you to panic and not pay attention to some of the details that otherwise highlight that this is fake. For more information on this latest scam, have a look at this article from the UK Business Insider journal. Remember, when in doubt about something like this, come and ask the experts in IT (and change your password!). Remember, protect yourself when you connect yourself to the world wide web!
