With the weeks counting down for Year 11 and Year 13 the events at school in the last few weeks have shown that there are still lots going on for Year 10 students. This week I reflect on academic success, the International Award and a very sad goodbye!

Academic success

On the last day of term we had our academic awards assembly. It was a fantastic way to end the term and I was very proud to see the Year 10 pupils receive recognition for their efforts in their subjects this year. For some this has been a year where they were rewarded for consistent academic achievement whilst for others great progress has been made. The list of awards for Year 10 pupils were as follows:

Year 10 Head of Year Award

 

Head of Year Award

The award for boys went to Aaron Yong. Aaron has been exceptionally helpful to the Year 10 team over the course of the Year. Always keen to volunteer for events or for tasks, Aaron has proven invaluable in the buddy system that we use for new starters. As someone who has been here a number of Years he understands the school well enough to pass on his knowledge and his friendly and bubbly nature means that those who have joined this year have settled in extremely well. In addition to this Aaron has taken an excellent approach to the International Award where once again he has demonstrated his abilities to work in a team. Well Done Aaron!

The award for girls was an extremely difficult choice and went to Julia Jobst. The girls in Year 10 have once again achieved excellent grades through the course of the Year. In particular Victoria Descamps, Abigail Cartwright & Yoona Jeong have all had an outstanding academic year thus far. However Julia won the award for developing the most in the course of the year. Upon joining Julia was one of the quieter members in the year group but over the last few months her confidence in her language skills have grown seeing her improve greatly across all subjects. She has firmly established herself as a top sportsperson in the school and displayed outstanding leadership on our Adventurous Journey trip in March. I am sure that she will emerge as a real leader amongst the year group over the coming months. Well done Julia!

Academic Review Evenings

On April 25th we have our final ARE of the year. This will be the last chance to speak to teachers about the progress that your child is making. More importantly it will give a useful opportunity to establish what can be done to ensure that they hit the ground running for the start of Year 11. For me I think it is clear that many students have progressed but with Year 11 exams looming it reminds us that our Year 10 pupils only have 1 Year left!!

Into the Woods

In the last week of term the Into the Woods show was the highlight of the term. The pupils did a fantastic job and once again we got to see the true talents on display at NAIS! Well done to Victoria Deschamps for her role as Rapunzel and for Yoona Jeong and Sarah Li Jenkins for also helping out in the show. We should also remember that many Year 10 pupils helped with the displays as part of their service elements of the International Award.

International Award

The pupils have been working on updating their records for skill, service and physical recreation. Many have now completed all 3 elements and now need to get their supervisors to sign off their achievements in these areas. Once this is complete we can send of the documents to the International Award to approve their awards. The pupils have also been finishing their group presentations to show the rest of the year on their experiences on the Adventurous Journey.

A sad goodbye

In the last few weeks we heard the sad news that Victoria Deschamps will be relocating back to New Zealand. Since joining NAIS 3 years ago Victoria has been an outstanding student both in and out of the classroom. From teaching Victoria last year I understand first hand her academic ability and she has flourished into the demands of IGCSE. Outside of the classroom she has involved herself heavily into school performances and various sports teams. She also made a fantastic contribution to the International Award showing strong leadership and helping to start a CCA for homework help for primary pupils. Victoria has a big personality and is a hugely popular student amongst staff and pupils. She will be greatly missed and I would like to wish her all the best on the next chapter of her life. Here are some of Victoria’s memories of her time at NAIS:

My time here at NAIS Pudong has been nothing but amazing! I have made many incredible friends during my 3 years here, that I am sure will remain my friends my entire life. The teachers are very supportive and successfully create a positive, fun and engaging learning environment for us to learn in. They have challenged me and pushed me to help me produce my best quality work and achieve the best grades. This year I was a part of the Into The Woods production, which was an amazing experience. Not only did I have a lot of fun rehearsing and performing but it also boosted my self-confidence. I was also introduced to the International Award and had the opportunity to take part in the Adventurous Journey trip. That trip taught me a lot of things such as navigational and camping skills and also team work and leadership. I would like to thank the students, the staff and my friends for making my time at NAIS so enjoyable and unforgettable.

As part of the end of the International Award I will be getting pupils to reflect on aspects of the experience. Here some pupils discuss the skills section of the Award.

For my International Award skill I did swimming. This was my major which meant that I had chosen to do it for 6 months. Over the course of the 6 months my endurance got much better and so did my sprinting. I trained hard and I also saw my results in the swimming meets I had in that period. I really enjoyed doing swimming for my International Award because swimming is a big passion of mine. I really got a lot out of it and also I had to remember to log my hours which meant that I could focus on what I had learnt. Overall I really liked doing the International Award because I got a lot out of it and learned new things.

From term 2, I have been working on my skill for International Award. I chose orchestra for 6 months as my skill because I am interested in music and wanted to collaborate with others. The orchestra is on every Monday CCA in the auditorium. At first, I found it quite hard to do my skill because I wasn’t confident enough to play my instrument in front of the people but I realized that I get to communicate with people by showing my music to others. Through the International Award, I learnt how to be confident and how to collaborate more effectively. I haven​`t quite finished my skill yet. However even when I finish the Award, I will participate in the orchestra.

Ji Woo Han

I am doing cooking as my skill, because cooking is a very useful skill. I do it every week on Friday. I have been doing it for 6 months, and I have learnt to make many new things like energy bars, crepes, meatballs etc. I have now finished it, and I would have liked to continue it, however I do not have time to do so.

Pushti Sehgal

The skill I chose to pursue in the International Award was Football. I chose this skill mainly because I enjoy it meaning that I would have no trouble investing my time in it. I train with the team (Century Park Football Club) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. We then have competitive matches on Sundays. This skill is my 6 month element (main) and I have completed it after starting in early October, 2016. During my time doing this skill I felt like I have improved my communication skills during interacting with my team-mates from all over Shanghai. My confidence has also improved after playing our competitive matches in front of people on Saturday afternoons. Lastly, the main thing I have improved overall would be my time-management skills because I have to balance my homework and all of the skills and activities needed to complete the award. I have really enjoyed pursuing the skill overall and will definitely continue after the IA.
