Netball & Rugby Finals
This year sees lots of Year 9 students involved in either netball or rugby finals. It is always pleasing to see so many students form the year group involved in co-curricular activities. The boys will be playing at Dulwich, Jinqiao and the girls here at NAIS Pudong. I wish them all the best of luck on Saturday at your respective sports. Go get 'em tigers.
Global Campus Photographer of the Year
Back by popular demand! We are delighted to announce the return of the photography calendar competition - 2016 'Global Campus Photographer of the Year' competition. Over the coming weeks, we will share information about the competition - the who, what, why, when and how.
In the meantime, please encourage students to head to the online area (which can be accessed from the Competition page) to vote on the theme. If you have any additional suggestions for a theme, please do let us know! (email@example.com)
Learning Beyond the Classroom
The final week of term sees students continue their learning experiences but this time beyond the classroom and finish the year with a variety of events and trips outside of the classroom environment. Information about Year 9 and all other year groups will be sent out shortly in a letter. It promises to be an exciting week with opportunities for all to enjoy school in a different light.
Year 9 students have just completed their summer term assessment cycle and I am pleased to report that they conducted themselves with maturity throughout. The students have worked hard on their revision in guidance and leading up to the exams and I am looking forward to seeing their results. The students carried out some of the main exams in the Sport Hall and under strict exam conditions in order to help prepare them for the IGCSE exams which will be starting next year.

History by Julien Francois
In History, just before the assessments, we did presentations about WW2 and different students did different subjects. We decided to watch ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ because we are currently learning about WW2 and the death camps and the story is mainly about this.
Art by Laurenz Weiner
Recently in Art we have been doing spray painting. We had to glue tissue paper on ripped cardboard to create texture and make the wall seem more realistic. Then we made stencils of iconic characters which we picked. We then cut out 3 different layers on each one and made each layer a different color to create effect.
French by Alistair Wong
Recently in French, we have been learning how to describe books that we have read. This has been extremely useful for our current tests. In class we learnt how to say what books we like and what genre they are. Learning this was extremely interesting and useful for our end-of-year assessment.
