XBlock Meeting today

Hi XBlockers,

Paul and I are looking forward to a productive learning focused meeting today in D220 at 3pm. Link to PPT was in the weekly email.

See you later.



Upstairs in Cafeteria Closed

The Student Council has decided that the upstairs of the cafeteria will be closed today and tomorrow (Thursday and Friday). They would like all students to know that the reason is because this space is not respected by some students.

Student Council will make an announcement in Assembly on Friday to explain more about this.

Assembly and trip meeting Friday (tomorrow)

Hi MSUS Students,

Tomorrow we will meet in the PAC as usual at 8am for our assembly. The assembly will be very brief and then we will go and meet with our Discover China group for final Discover China preparations. Exciting!

See you tomorrow at 8… don’t be late!

Assembly on Friday

Quick notice that our assembly on Friday will be very short. We will meet in the PAC as usual and then head out for final Discover China trip meetings. See you at 8am on Friday in the PAC.

Office Hours Monday 3.15-4.15pm

MSUS Students…..did you know?? Every week your teachers have ‘Office Hours’?? This means that every week they have time set aside to be in class, ready to meet you and answer your questions.

Need help with homework? Questions about the day’s class? Want to meet your EE or PP Supervisor? Find out when your teacher has their Office Hours.




MSUS Assembly Friday

It’s Assembly time again. On Friday Assembly will begin at 8am…. yes….8am

Will you be there at 8am? Will you be tardy? Will you have your bag with you or will it be in your Advisory classroom or locker? Think carefully about your answers




MS Students in the Cafeteria after 3pm

Middle School Students! Here is a very clear message about using the Cafeteria after 3pm.

The cafeteria is only open to students after 3pm if….. 

  1. You are with a parent

  2. You are waiting for your Sports Activity to start at 4.15pm

Still not sure if you can go in the Cafeteria after school? Come and see me


Personal Project Day

Grade 10! Today is the day you have all been looking forward to…. Personal Project Day!  Please go to the Music Room straight after Advisory with your bags and computers ready for an intense Personal Project Launch.


IDU Job-A-Like at NIS

Dear MYP Colleagues,

I am hosting a Job-a-like for schools in the region on Tuesday September 18th from 10am to 3pm.

The theme of the Job-a-like is ‘IDUs for experienced MYP teachers’. I am extending an invitation to anyone who teaches MYP to attend this workshop, although places are limited so if you are interested please get in touch.

The workshop will include a quick briefing on what an IDU is according to the IB and then time for planning, refining and sharing IDU ideas and plans will be given.

Looking forward to hearing from you..



Grade 10 Personal Project is on the way!

Grade 10 Students! Personal Project is about to begin and we are all set for a fantastic year full of exciting projects, presentations and personal goals. I will see you all for a full day on Wednesday but in preparation for that, please login to Managebac and take a look at the Personal Project section and the information contained in there for you.

Go to the school website – students – Managebac and then login. If you have difficulty logging in contact


Middle Schoolers in the Corridors!

Are you in Grades 6 – 10?

If the answer is yes then…. are you allowed in the Middle School corridor during break and lunch?

The answer is no! Students in Grade 6-10 cannot be in the upstairs corridors at lunchtime. Wait for the bell to go to your lockers or your classrooms. You have been warned 🙂 


Discover China Grades 5 – 12

Dear Students,

The final Discover China Trip lists have now been created and uploaded to Veracross. Check your portal to see which trip you will be going on.

We are now purchasing travel tickets, planning accommodation and deciding on the activities.
