To help our students tell their stories, NIS is implementing the Global Citizen Diploma. This program provides all students a platform to tell us (and the world) who they are. We are not making them do more. We are asking them to tell us what they are doing inside and outside of school. There will be more info for teachers, parents and students. Here is the website if you want a peek: https://globalcitizendiploma.org/
On Friday after assembly, we will be giving a very brief GCD introduction to the grades 8 and 9. We will be asking for interested students to apply to attend the GCD-UP workshop in Hong Kong during CNY. Students and teachers from all 5 GCD schools will meet to learn, to share, to be empowered. This should take around 10 minutes. We will share the presentation on 365.

Need a quiet place to study? Need some books for winter break? Need a break from your family? The library will be open from 10:00-12:00 on Saturday.
The library will be a “quiet zone” for the next two weeks, with computers and phones to be used for educational purposes only and noisy conversations to be held elsewhere. The quiet zone begins Monday!
‘Tis the season…Staff, friends, families, students, and even pets can sense the approaching holidays. For some this time might mean a major transition for a family. For others, it may mean being bored stiff at home with no friends to play with. For most, it is an exciting time to relax or be adventurous with friends and family. Either way their tends to be a lot of emotion about this time of year. We can help each other and our students during the next two and a half weeks by:
- Revisiting common agreements in the classroom and around campus.
- Taking time to check-in and talk with students.
- Do diligence by keeping students accountable for their behavior.
- Breathe, smile, and patiently wait for students to meet your expectations.
They will love you all the more for it!

This message is from the Video Review team:
The Video Review Team is a small group that films and produces video coverage of the year’s special events. We’re looking to grow and want to encourage anyone and everyone who may be interested to apply.
Team members are expected to film and edit a 40 second clip with a partner for an event/s they’re assigned. You’ll be able to choose, however, we need flexibility as well.
Prospective members should have an interest in production and post-production for film/video. Knowing the basic of camera operation, cinematography, editing and post-production is a huge plus but not a requirement as you’ll learn with an experienced member.
Commitment and reliability is essential as many events take place after school or on weekends.
How to Apply:
With a limited number of spaces available we want to see your interest. Showcase your cinematography, editing, or sound design!
To apply, submit 1 short video no longer then 40 seconds. The only restriction is the video you submit must be your own work, if you worked on it with a team let us know your role. If you use footage that you did not film, acknowledge that in the submission.
Send your submissions in the form of a link published through Microsoft Media Stream to Mr. Madalinski before January 8th, 2019.
We as a team will review the videos and select new members based solely on the quality, ability, and initiative shown in your submission.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask any member of the Video Review team; Grade 12: Nancy, Grade 11: Winston, Roy, Anthony or Mayvelyn, Grade 10: Luigi, Grade 9: Edwin or Sean, and Grade 8 Oscar. You may also speak to Mr. Madalinski.
