NIS Academic Awards, Service and CAS

I am going through the Academic award lists and I notice that some students have put Service / CAS activities in managebac but have not written any journal entries. Please note, no activities and no journal entries (that focus on the selected outcomes) unfortunately means no Academic award so please update your Service / CAS journal today. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and queries.

The ‘Failing Forwards’ workshops, for all Grade 2 to 10 students, take place on Monday and Thursday next week from 10:40-11:45. We hope they will be a fun and character-building opportunity for you to try something you have never tried before, alongside people you don’t usually work with.

You can browse the workshops on Veracross from 10 am today (Monday). Sign-ups will open up at 1pm on Wednesday 17th. Sign-ups close at 3pm on Friday 19th; those not signing up by then will be assigned workshops for the two blocks, as available.
