Letter from the Head of Secondary - 21st January

21 January 2016

Students at NAIS Pudong are encouraged to ‘Be Ambitious’, not only academically, but also personally and socially – indeed these are the keystones of a well-rounded, international education.  Participation in Model United Nations events is one very good way to develop their wider skill sets, and our school has a very active and successful MUN group, led by Mr. Gichana and Mr. Watson.

Last weekend, seven delegates represented our school in one of the biggest Model United Nations conferences in China, the Concordia International Model United Nations (CISSMUN). Various topics of global interest were under discussion and our delegates represented Mexico and Kenya in the Human Rights Commission, Environment Committee and the General Assembly. The delegates worked hard in preparation for this conference during the CCA meetings.

You can read all about our student delegates’ experiences over the three day event here.

Participation in activities such as MUN is not only a great opportunity in itself; it is also highly valued by universities.  I would encourage all students to consider participating in MUN, or some of the other excellent CCAs that we offer, in order to ensure that their education is as rounded as possible.

Meanwhile, back at school, this term’s Academic Review Evenings (AREs) have started, with excellent attendance on Tuesday by Year 13 parents – obviously a very important time in the lives of our Year 13 students as they reflect on their mock exam results, and begin the preparation for the final exams in May.

Next Wednesday sees a similar event for Year 11 parents, which we anticipate being equally well attended as these students prepare for the IGCSE exams in May and June.  AREs follow, after Chinese New Year, for Years 10 and 12 on 17 February, and Years 7, 8 and 9 a couple of weeks later.

The second assessment cycle for students in Years 7 – 10 begins on 24 February, and timetables for these assessments will be published prior to the mid-term break. 

I understand that this weekend is likely to be the coldest one of the winter (so far!), so I don’t envy our students heading to (even colder) Beijing for the ACAMIS Basketball tournament, but I am sure you will join me in wishing them every success.
