A very short but URGENT meeting is needed today.
Bring your laptop.
Meet outside the PAC at 10.21 pm.
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.
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!
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!

As per a previous email, the following students will be on a field trip (Wednesday) from 1.15 – 4.30pm:
- Ting-Wei (Ruby)

They will be interacting with children at a migrant school teaching them about Oral Hygiene.
A group of students and teachers working with Felicity have made
hats. These hats will now be put into the Giving Tree Bags.
The group will continue to knit hats for next year’s Giving Tree Campaign.
Come along, learn to knit and socialise!
If you need help with ManageBac, please drop in to see Ms Anna before January 10th.
I am happy to announce that Ms. McCormack’s 2nd Grade and the Wang/Merrylees Advisory won their respective divisions for the Giving Tree Homeroom/Advisory Contest. However, the kind of charitable spirit displayed by the entire NIS community showed that we are all winners in this activity. On behalf of the Pfrang Association, I would like to thank everyone here at Nanjing International School for taking part making our Giving Tree card drive such a success.
There are some posters on display outside the library/cafeteria. Each poster is based on one of the Global Goals. G9 Designers would appreciate your feedback on their designs. Please scan the attached QR codes under each poster to leave feedback this week. Parents, Students, Teachers – all feedback welcome!
