Weather Instruments

The Humanities Department has mislaid a set of weather instruments that we use to teach weather and climate in Grade 8. If anyone knows of their whereabouts we would be very happy.

Thanks for looking.

Accreditation

If you would like to join the Provisional Steering Committee to prepare for the Preliminary Visit in October please get in touch. Ideally I would like two more teachers. If you would like more information about the commitment involved or the accreditation process I would be happy to chat with you any time.

Grade 8 Displaced People Experience

Dear Teachers of Grade 8, just a quick reminder that there will be no Grade 8 classes on Tuesday 31st March as all of Grade 8 will be participating in a displaced people experience as part of a Design and Humanities IDU. All class teachers are welcome to come over and see what is happening throughout the day. We will be on the far side of the running track.

Grade 8 teachers

This is an advance warning for Grade 8 teachers that all Grade 8 students will be off schedule on Wednesday March 31st as they will be involved in a Design and Humanities Displaced People IDU. They will be in school the following day for their Student Led Conference.

Inter house trivia quiz

The inter house competition resumes next week with the annual inter house trivia quiz.

Get your teams together. If you have good general knowledge and like the challenge of a quiz speak to your house leader or house captains.

Quiz will be on Wednesday 18th March lunchtime in D220

Each house needs 3 people per team, boys and girl mixed, and one team from Grades 6-8 and one from 9-12.

Displaced People

Dear NIS,  This year the ‘shanty town experience’ is being replaced with a ‘displaced people experience’. For this to be successful we need a large collection of materials for Grade 8 to use to build shelters. As this will be in March / April this year they will need to keep warm and dry. We are looking for cardboard boxes, tarpaulins, plastic sheeting, string, wood, bamboo poles and whatever else would be useful for shelter construction. We only want used items.

If you have anything please bring to our classrooms (D220), the Design Centre, or contact us and we will collect. We are the Grade 8 Humanities team (Ruth, Rebecca and Laurie) and the Grade 8 Design team (Francis, Robin and Nikolai). Many thanks.
