Sign up for the Science Fair!

This year we have an amazing group of Scientific Superstars in Grade 9 who are dying to share their Science projects with you. If you would like to bring your class to the Science Fair in the PAC on Tuesday June 9th from the end of break until lunchtime, drop Ruth an email with the time you want to visit so that she can schedule you in. Social Distancing to keep us safe!

Paper Recycling is back at NIS!

Hello, we are CANIS recyclers from UN Development Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production (Ms Isa and Mr Bahilo).

We are here to help the environment. We want to collect paper from every classroom so next time you throw paper out just keep in mind that if the paper is only used on one side you can put it In the boxes in the hallways.

When in doubt don’t throw it out.

Volunteering Opportunity for Grades 6-11

Publicity, poster, PSA COMPETITION – Everesting Challenge

Find your paints, your crayons, your coloured pencils, your camera or your laptop!

Mr Stevens needs publicity for his fundraiser. We need posters, videos etc that explain what, when, why, how, when and where!

Who: Mr Stevens

What: will ride up and down “Yangshan” 80 times.

Where: near Golden Eagle

When: June 6

Why: Mr Stevens is raising money for the Hopeful Hearts Charity. This charity helps pay for children’s heart surgeries.

How: He will ride up and down the hill 80 times. This is the same distance as climbing to the Mount Everest base camp! This challenge is call EVERESTING. It’s the most difficult climbing challenge in the world: .

So how can you help Mr Stevens?

We need to advertise this fundraiser. But we don’t have any posters or PSAs yet.

Your advertisement should be clear and informative. You can draw, paint, or use any media you want. Perhaps you would like to do a little video, like a PSA.

How is this volunteering? Your contribution to this poster competition is indirect volunteering. You will be raising awareness about heart surgeries and hopefully, people will donate money and cheer him on.

The submissions are due on Monday, May 11th at 9am.

Please put them on OneDrive. For more info, please contact Mr Stevens or myself.

G7 to LGR block 1

Grade 7 students! Today we will have a short meeting in the LGR in block 1 to talk about your schedules for G8. Please put your bag in your block 1 class and make your way to the LGR ready to talk course choices.

See you there!
