IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL TEACHERS RE: LEAVING STUDENTS

Dear All,

The end of another school year is fast approaching, and that means among other things : Clearance Forms for our leaving students and their families.

Below you will find information on our Clearance Forms and leaving procedures  in case you are asked questions, or are new to the process.

Each leaving student in every grade must complete a Clearance Form. The parent needs to complete the whole form for PS, and for MS/US the front page is for parents and the other two sheets for the students to complete. (Non native speaking parents may need some assistance in PS)·

(Katie Ham has organised for the G12’s to get their forms done before graduation)

Forms can be obtained from Main Reception, Admissions or downloaded off the website on the Parent Portal or FAQ’s

· On the student’s last day – in exchange for their completed form we will hand over the studentship letter in PS and transcripts in MS/US. This is done by the ladies on Main Reception with support from Admissions. As school ends at 11am please encourage all concerned to get these forms completed in their final week – not the final hour or minutes!

Occasionally we have students leaving early – keep an ear out for those so we can make sure that they are supported too.

Julia Zhang our Financial Controller on the 2nd floor of the Centre opposite the lift is always the last person to sign off on the form. She checks that there is no money owing to school by the student and the family.·

It is important that all MacBooks are handed into IT for them to clear off all school settings and software. Before this is done EVERYTHING must be backed up as it will be wiped clean and they will not be able to retrieve anything. I would encourage all leaving students in Grade 5 and MS to ask IT if they have any questions about this – especially in terms of the best time to get this done during their final week.

· The S2 reports will be out on Thursday 2oth June around 4pm and not before. All leaving families must download and print them off, as once they have left NIS they will no longer have access to Veracross.

· If any student has a special request or needs help, send them to see Weiwei who will arrange an appointment with Kasson if needed.
· Our Korean leavers often have complicated procedures for the papers needed for their return home. If they need help once again pass them onto Weiwei and Kasson.

· The Admissions Office remains open throughout the summer break.

· Please continue to pass on any intel about leaving students. This can be a very unsettling time for some families who are still not sure of their future plans.

Any questions – come and see us in Admissions Office, call Sue on 13809022693 or email us at admissions@nanjing-school.com

Thanks for your help and cooperation.

Nanjing Olympic Museum – great resource in our city

Dear All

This very good museum is jam packed full of great information and displays about the Olympic movement and the Youth Olympics that were held here in 2014.
It is located in the Poly Theatre/Hotel complex near the beautiful pedestrian bridge (well worth a trip in itself for budding architects or designers ) south of the city in the CBD.

Free entrance with passport.

Good signage in English.

Lots to see and quite a bit of interactive stuff- need to check with the museum that it is all switched on and in working order.

Suitable for all ages.

Thoroughly recommend, and I have a copy of the brochure if anyone is interested in going along.

Note for Arden & Andrei in Harare

As I mentioned at Briefing on Monday morning, some of you might like to write a short message to Arden and Andrei.

As you all know Zimbabwe is in turmoil, and it is a demanding and stressful situation for both of them.

I will put a large sheet of A3 paper on the table in the Staff Room with a pen for  you to leave a message. Kasson is “popping” over there to do some training for Arden and her team next week, and he will take it with him on Friday.

Thanks

Sue

NIC Winter Party – save the date – 8th December

No need to spend money on a new frock – this is all about dancing, buffet supper & wine and having fun with friends – just before we all get away for the Winter Holidays.

Tickets are on sale in the Centre Foyer from this week.

The Shangri La is offering a good room rate to stay over, and our student choir will be in place for the tree lighting ceremony just before the party kicks off.

Do come along – make a group and celebrate the end of a great year!

NIC Bazaar this Wed at Shangri La

 

The vendors have told us that they will be at the Shangri La until 5pm.

I hope that some of you will be able to come along?

If there is not too much traffic it should only take 20 mins or so to get there by taxi. Much longer by Metro cos you have to change lines.

Hope you can make it !

Sue

Ready made easy meals from Chartwells

Did you know that Chartwells provide ready made, freshly cooked meals to order.

They need two days notice, and can be picked up from either Cafe.

You can email Annie at Chartwells and pay by WeChat, your card or cash.

I can highly recommend the beef lasagne.

There is also chicken cordon bleu, cottage pie, and fish pie .

The cottage pie is 40 RMB everything else is 35RMB

Portions are quite substantial.

Great to freeze and keep for those days when you do not want to cook…..
