Bursting the Bubble with Xianlin Middle School

On Wednesday and Friday next week we will have version 2 of our Mandarin Exchange with the Xianlin Middle School. On Wednesday afternoon our Mandarin Phase 3 students in G6-10 will visit the school next door for the Chinese students to practice their English and on Friday Block 5 the Chinese students will come and visit NIS and be hosted by their partners.

The students that are taking part are listed here.

Where should I go for Block 5 today?

Grade 9: Go to Upstairs Cafeteria for GCD launch preparation with Mrs Clarke (note; change of location; not LGR)

G6 -8: Go to the room where your UN Goal Group meets – ask your Advisor if you are not sure and check locations below

If you have not chosen a UN Goal see Mrs Clarke today or send an email with your choice.

Xblock Data Collection Today

How might we share our Xblock projects? How might we set effective goals for our projects? How might we deepen our learning in Xblock?

The answer to all of these questions begins with data! Beginning today Mr Jacobson and Ms Merrylees will begin collecting some of the data we need to help us answer these questions.

What do you need to do?

Grade 6: Go to the LGR at the start of Xblock today (block 3) to find out

Grade 7: Go to the LGR at 11.20

Grade 8: Go to the LGR at 12 noon

See you later for more on data…!


MSUS lunch time changes for today

Dear Middle and Upper School students,
