Grade 8 Humanities Trip (20th February, Blocks 3 & 4)

All Grade 8 will be out of school for these two blocks, as they will be visiting Nanjing Museum to see the current temporary exhibition of artworks from the Italian Renaissance. This is in connection with their current unit, which focuses on innovation and ideas in Renaissance Europe, so the exhibition has arrived in Nanjing with timing so perfect we couldn’t ignore it! The exhibition ends on 24th February, so next week is our only chance to get there.

All Grade 8 students will depart school as soon as possible after 10:20am, and will be back in school during lunchtime. They will therefore miss their Block 3 and 4 lessons; Block 5 should go ahead as usual.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused, and please see me, Trina or Nick if you have any questions or concerns.

Speech & Debate: early departure today

To teachers of the students listed below…

Could these students have permission to leave a little early from their Block 5 lesson today (Friday, 25th January)? They have a bus to catch at 3pm from NIS to the stati0n. They would therefore need to leave your lesson by 2:45pm at the latest. They should mention this to you themselves and remind you when the time comes. Many thanks for making sure we leave on time!

Accidental Theatre returns!

Was your May miserable last year? Did your spring not sparkle? Was it because you missed the chance to witness a small-scale, intimate, unpredictable, comically outrageous theatre show? Fear not! Accidental Theatre is back!

Well, it’s only back if you want to take part. A theatre company needs actors, and we are looking for actors right now. Are you in Grade 8 to 11? Are you an actor? Have you already performed in school productions or elsewhere? Or are you in the habit of watching theatre shows thinking ‘I could do that’? Are you able to commit to Monday and Thursday after-school rehearsal times, and a performance in mid-May? Would you show up faithfully with lines learned and energy to spare? 
 
If so, see Mr.Brown in the Black Box or Mr.Hammond in D214 to find out what it’s all about. Auditions will be held week beginning 21st January.

Speech & Debate – last minute request

The Speech & Debate team leaves for a tournament in Beijing on Friday, 25th January, and returns to Nanjing on the evening of the 27th. There are 16 students taking part, plus me as the only teacher…so far.

Could anyone else join this trip so that there are enough teachers present?

It involves no extra work before or after the trip, and no duties while there. It would simply be to accompany us to and from Beijing and to be at the hotel over two nights.

If anyone is willing to come along please get in touch with me. It would be very much appreciated by not only me but all the students!

Accidental Theatre returns! Here’s how to get involved…

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.
