Always the Stairs

The health benefits of climbing the stairs are undisputed. Talk to your Advisor or PE teacher for more information about why using the lift is an unhealthy choice but climbing the stairs is a healthy one. At NIS the lifts are there for people who need them. Students who are able to climb the stairs should be climbing the stairs and not using the lifts.  See for more advice….



Reports and Awards

Dear MSUS Students,

The reports are now closed and will be available for download from Veracross by yourselves and your parents on Tuesday at 4pm. Ms Ham and I will post a list of students who have won an award on the window of the LGR on Tuesday. Please check and let us know if there has been a mistake. The Awards will be given during our special awards assembly on Friday. See you then!

Mandarin Exchange Meeting – G6-9 Mandarin Phase 3 students

We will have a meeting tomorrow in the LGR (Friday December 7th 8.10 am) for all students attending the Mandarin Exchange with the next door school. This means all students in Phase 3 from Grades 6-9 during Extended Advisory.

Reminder of the trip:

On December 10th and 11th our Mandarin phase 3 students in Grades 6 – 9 will visit the Middle School  next door to NIS from 11am – 3pm. For the first hour they will accompany a Chinese student to class, then they will have lunch in the school cafeteria before going to class with their partner at 1.30pm. They will return to NIS at 3pm. On December 12th and 13th the Chinese students will visit NIS and follow the same routine.

Please be aware of the disruption to your classes…… first because some of your students may be absent and second because you may have additional, Chinese Students, in your class.

Home Learning during Exam Week

Dear MSUS Teachers,

In line with our regular practice please do not assign any home learning for Grade 7-11 students this weekend or next week that is not direct preparation for the exams.

There should be no deadlines next week for any projects or similar that are not connected to the assessments during the exam time.

Thanks for supporting our students!

Home Learning Overload?

Dear MSUS Teachers,

As we approach the exams, and a very busy time of year, please be mindful of our students’ workloads and stress levels. Tonight is the production with lots of middle and upper school students involved. They may need some flexibility with deadlines. Next week is the pre-exam week where we traditionally refrain from assigning anything that is not directly linked with the upcoming exams.

Thanks for your support for our students.
