G10 and 11 students, would you like to experience what the Grade 12 Graduation involves? Perhaps you would you like to help G12 on their way to another stage of life?

Early next year it may be possible for a small number of students to change trips depending on the number students that leave NIS and the number of new students. If it is possible for any students to change trips I will inform you in August.

The Local School English Tutoring group has been going to local schools and providing opportunities for Chinese kids to improve their spoken English for over 10 years. As well as this, the Chinese students, NIS students and NIS community have benefited from this by enabling everyone involved to enhance their understanding of different cultures. You may like to call this a little bit of bubble bursting, and we have been able to do this through the efforts of a small number of NIS staff and many NIS students. There is now the opportunity for more G8-11 students to take part. If you would like to join this activity please email me. It happens on Thursdays after school with the group currently going to Xianlin Primary school.
Grade 5 to 10 Students
On Tuesday I will email information to you and your parents about the next school year’s Discover China trips. You will have one week to think about which trip you wish to go on then you will need to select on Veracross the trip of your choice. There is a maximum number of places for each trip so the sooner you choose the more likely you will get your first choice. All students (except those who are certain they are leaving NIS at this end of this school year) should select a trip. The selection schedule is:
Tuesday April 11th – Information about Discover China Week Trip options for next year will be emailed to all grade 5 – 10 students and parents.
Tuesday April 18th: 12.30 pm C&S / CAS Signup link (on Veracross) opens for trip selection. Students should only choose one trip.
Monday April 24th: 1.00 pm : Veracross will close for Trip Selections.
Note to Grade 11 Students:
As this year’s Grade 11 students will only have one trip destination (for your G12 Trip) no choice is necessary for you, and as this trip will be held in late May we will give you information about it in semester 1 next school year.
The 6 G8-11 students on the attached list will miss school all day on Monday April 17th as they will be on the Pfrang Trip.Pfrang Trip-14wykpp
