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.


Naming Contest

We only have a few entries so far and would like some more. We have been preparing a new section of the NIS website that will feature a photo gallery and YouTube-style video gallery of events and activities that are NIS-related. However, we are in desperate need of a creative and “cool” sounding name for this part of the site that is better than “Lion-tube” or “NIS-Media” to use as a title and link for this section. Please submit your ideas to the form below and make sure to enter your name and class so that we can recognize your contribution. We will post finalists on the Daily Bulletin in March.

Discovery in Space!!!

For those of you wondering why Google had the unique logo yesterday and neglected to click on it, it was celebrating a landmark day in history for space exploration. Not ancient history, but current, up-to-the-minute history! Yesterday, 23 February 2017, with the help of a coordinated effort of ground telescopes and NASA’s Spitzer telescope, we located “the first known system of seven Earth-size planets around a single star,” several of which are in the “habitable zone” and “could potentially have liquid water.” For more on this amazing discovery, check out this link or click on the video below.
