Visual Thinking Space Prototype – Library

Good morning, Students,

Are you looking for a space to brainstorm ideas for a project?

Would you benefit from a shared space for 2-4 peers?

Do you think that it would be useful to have white walls for capturing ideas and making connections?

As part of our Library prototypes, we have set up a visual thinking space for small groups, 4 “walls” of white-boards, near the back of the Library.  If you are working on a project today or next week, ask your teacher if you can come and try out this space.

After giving it a go, please provide feedback by scanning the QR code and answering a few short questions.

Thank you,

Mrs Tyoschin

ACAMIS Conference – March 10&11

Good morning,

The ACAMIS Conference is now less than a month away!  We are looking for a couple of teachers who would like to help out on one or both days.  These teachers, of course, would be welcome to attend sessions.

Please send me your expression of interest by the end of the day today.

Thank you,

Child Protection at NIS

Dear All,

Please find attached the NIS Child Protection document that has been devised as a result of the professional development in September.  Please read (4 pages) and save to your Staff Folder.   The procedures come into effect immediately, and the full document will be launched with our community in August 2017.   Special thanks to SET and our Counselors.


Thank you,


G6-12 : very short survey

Good morning, Students in Grades 6-12,

On behalf of Student Council and myself, please complete this 2-question survey.   The first question asks that you provide 3 words that come to mind when you think of “international-mindedness” at NIS.  As a result, we will develop an NIS understanding of this part of our mission.

Please complete the survey today during Advisory.

Thank you,

Student Council and Mrs Tyoschin
