Staff Room – Paint fumes and paint drops!

Thank you all for help tidying up our shared Staff Room. Over the holiday, the Staff Room will have a little makeover. So please take your treasured possessions and tuck them into your offices or rooms. I would hate for your snacks to imbued with paint fumes or for your mugs to be covered in paint drops….New colours for a brand New Year!


January 10th – IMPORTANT DATE

It’s happening on January 10th!

ManageBac will be closed/locked/inaccessible/impenetrable!

Please fill out your SA, Volunteering or CAS experiences before January 10th- that means description, SMART goal, ONE learning outcome (unless you are in DP), reflections and evidence are uploaded.

If you need a little support and or a big nudge, please pop in to see Ms Anna ASAP.



Students…Break Tomorrow

Hello Superstar Students,

Tomorrow’s Break will last from 10:05am-10:30am. An FYI that the football pitch, bamboo forest, and gaming room will be closed. Thanks for your help with this. Also, a reminder that school finishes at 11:00am tomorrow as well.


The schedule is here as a reminder. Have a great day!


Tomorrow’s Schedule Update

Hello All,

A slight adjustment has been made to tomorrow’s schedule out of respect for the annual anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre. The plan is to delay the break until approximately 10:05am, after the symbolic air raid siren at 10:01am concludes. Please keep students in class until the siren finishes sounding. At that point students are welcome to go to break and teachers are invited to the staff lounge for some last-school-day-of-2019 treats. Our leadership team will cover break-time teaching.

Also of note is that the only NIS “bells” that will sound tomorrow should be the 7:55am “get to class!” bell and the 11:00am dismissal. Beyond that it will be up to all of us to help students move between Homerooms/Advisories, assemblies, and Break based upon the schedule.

Many thanks for your efforts!
