Happy veg back in school tomorrow Wed 10th Jan

Happy veg by Mr Gu here on 10th Jan and Wednesdays thereafter

He will be here on the first Wednesday 10th Jan.

Do go along and talk to him about his project in the south of Nanjing. He is a very interesting man and your students may be interested too in finding out more about his farming methods.

“Time Farm is a permaculture organic farm. Until 2017 we have been practising permaculture for 5 years. Permaculture is the conscious design and maintenance of agriculturally productive ecosystems which have the diversity, stability and resilience of nature ecosystems. Permaculture design is a system of assembling conceptual, material, and strategic components in a pattern which functions to benefit life in all its forms. The philosophy behind permaculture is working with, rather than against , nature. There is NO chemical fertilizer, GMO, pesticide, or herbicide used inside the farm. We collect rain water for irrigation. Water from nearby pond is purified by a constructed wetland before watering plants. More detail can be found at our website http://www.timefarm.com.cn

I will bring some fresh vegetables(potato, carrot, green bean, green lettuce and bokchoy,etc,.) for onsite sale at NIS on Wednesdays from 2:30pm to 3:30pm. Welcome to join us.

You can also order through wechat. Our wechat ID is Timefarm. Every Wednesday afternoon on school days I will delivery your orders to NIS for your pickup”

Dental hygienist at Global Doctors near Skyways

Dear All,

Another welcome addition to the local scene – you can get a clean and a polish on those “knashers” at our local Global Doctors.

Dr Nina used to work at Union Dental – she is a local Nanjinger with very good English.

A half hour clean is RMB450 with a RMB350 charge for the initial consultation.

Nina is friendly and knows what she is doing . The facilities are brand new with modern  equipment.

She is also a proper dentist – but cannot vouch for that – luckily for me!

Highly recommended

NIC trip to Harbin Jan19-21st 2018 – last chance to sign up!!!

Dear All

NIC is doing another trip to Harbin in January and we need a minimum number to sign up to make it viable. If you have not been it is a bucket list opportunity – you do not need to go twice but you definitely need to go once!

I went a few years ago and it was extraordinary. There is a deposit RMB1000 per person by 4th December. Children are welcome as long as they have the right kit to wear – as you would expect it is extremely chilly!

The trip is designed so that our teachers can fly on Friday night early evening and return on Sunday evening.

See poster details for full information or contact Monica in Admissions.

Something to look forward to after you return from your holidays…

Sue
