Space Hopping

Dear Grade 11 and 12 Students,

This week I am prototyping Space Hopping with Grade 11 and 12 students. This is an idea to provide supported independent study in the Library during time you would usually be studying in the lounge and, for Grade 12 students between mock exams.  This means that you can work independently in the Library with a member of staff available to support you. The aim is to help you be more productive and focused during school study time. Interested? The prototype will be happening at these times this week:

Monday 10.40am  Tuesday 11.45am  Thursday 8.10am

You can only attend if you would usually be in the lounge or taking an online course at this time. I will meet anyone interested in the lounge at the start of the block.

Overseas Line Temporary Outage @1515

Good morning,

Today, Friday, 24 February 2017, at 1515, we will have to temporarily shut down our connection to the VPN line for 30-45 minutes for some maintenance on our hardware. We will still have a connection to local internet, but you will need to use your personal VPNs for access to Google and other sites blocked in China for this time. Thank you for your patience as we work to make your surfing experience in the future a better one!

Have a great weekend,

Your Friendly NIS IT Department
