After School Activities – Would you like to run an ASA?

We are preparing this year’s ASA schedule and we would like to hear from pArents who would like to run an ASA. For each ASA cycle we have a number of outside instructors to add a little but of variety to the activities for G1-5. If you have an interest, skill or are passionate about something then please consider offering an ASA for our G1-5 students.

Pfrang Students’ Trip to NIS and Nanjing – Host Families still needed

On 23-25 Aug we expect up to 19 Pfrang Students (13 girls and 6 boys) to visit Nanjing and NIS. The students have just graduated from High school and some of them will be attending university in Nanjing. This trip is being organised in conjunction with Amity and the Pfrang Association. NIS has a very long association with the Pfrang Association, and has been a key supporter of their sponsorship of students-in-need in Northern Jiangsu province. This trip will be a major advance in NIS’ engagement with the Chinese community and provide the first real opportunity for the NIS community to engage with the students it has supported over many years. NIS students will have the opportunity to interact with the students on Wed Aug 23 and we are hoping to offer homestay for the students on evenings of Wed 23rd and Thurs 24th of Aug. If you would like to be part of this historic “Bursting the Bubble” activity please let me know.
