MSUS Awards Assembly screening today

Calling all MSUS students, teachers and parents!

Today we will screen our Semester 2 Awards Assembly at 2.15pm.

All students and Advisors should make their way to Advisory classrooms at 2pm ready to be seated for the 2.15pm start. The assembly lasts for 1hour.

This formal part of the end of the semester is a time honoured tradition at NIS and one of the ways we come together as a community to celebrate student achievements.

ELL Toolkits

Dear MYP Teachers,

Please return your ELL toolkit to either Ruth or the Library before Tuesday next week. This will enable us to update the name charts for next school year. They are all in blue plastic folders and have a barcode.

Thanks very much!

Can you operate a sewing machine?

Calling all sewing machinists…..

We have 4 new sewing machines in school all set up and ready to go. We just need experts to help us to support the students showing them how to use them and how to take care of them. Can you help?

Please let Ruth or Anna know if you are willing to offer your time and skills! Many thanks.

Sign up for the Science Fair!

This year we have an amazing group of Scientific Superstars in Grade 9 who are dying to share their Science projects with you. If you would like to bring your class to the Science Fair in the PAC on Tuesday June 9th from the end of break until lunchtime, drop Ruth an email with the time you want to visit so that she can schedule you in. Social Distancing to keep us safe!

Paper Recycling is back at NIS!

Hello, we are CANIS recyclers from UN Development Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production (Ms Isa and Mr Bahilo).

We are here to help the environment. We want to collect paper from every classroom so next time you throw paper out just keep in mind that if the paper is only used on one side you can put it In the boxes in the hallways.

When in doubt don’t throw it out.

CANIS Recyclers (Khai Brown, Gui Miranda, Junha Jin, Jansen Mao, Shi-yu Wu, Juhyeong Woo)

Tech Free Zones

Middle and Upper School Students; the Tech Free Zones are back!

Beginning today (Monday May 18th) you will need to pay attention to the places which are Tech Free Zones;




Library Foyer

What is a Tech Free Zone? It is a place where you are not permitted to be using your phone, your computer or your ear pods / headsets.

Why do we have Tech Free Zones? To support social interactions, places to talk and laugh with your friends, a break from screens, for improved mental health and wellbeing, to create balance.
