Match report by Isabel:
ACAMIS was a very rewarding experience that not many people get the chance to have. It was a great three days. The team was united and even though we were outnumbered by all the other teams we kept pushing until the end. We came really close to winning the semi-final but then lost 20-18 in over-time. In the end we came third which was still an achievement for the team and we came out the tournament with our heads held high and with the honour of representing NAIS Pudong.

Economics - As part of the "Occupations and Earnings" section of Labour Economics, the Y10 Economics students put their Christmas holidays into practical use. They conducted fruitful interviews with friends and family members who are working, to determine the net advantages they gain from their jobs. A variety of presentation methods were applied, ranging from video to audio and written interviews. There was a wide range of professionals interviewed, ranging from a Regional Vice President in a Fortune 500 company to an "ayi". This provided the students with an opportunity to understand why differences in wages and other benefits exist between, and sometimes, within professions. – Mr. Gichana
Geography - Y10 students have started a new unit on Economic Geography and have been investigating how employment structures change as a region or country becomes more economically developed.
