Year 9 News - 4 March

03 March 2016

It was a pleasure to see so many of you at this week’s Academic Review Evening.  It is a great opportunity to meet with the teachers, especially for our students in Year 9, as the IGCSE option choices loom. Making decisions about the future is a difficult one for the students but, with the support of our teachers and the Guidance programme, I hope that everyone feels that they can make an informed choice. We have begun some career exploration in Guidance lessons this term which will spark thoughts in the students’ minds about the different career options available at the moment. It’s an ever-changing world and the idea that the students might have a job that doesn’t even exist yet is mind boggling!

Next week sees the arrival of the much anticipated production of ‘Beauty and the Beast’. I believe that most tickets are now sold with Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night being a complete sellout!! Congratulations to those who have managed to get their hands on tickets and please enjoy the show!

Student Achievement

Lea Bjornemo has consistently improved her knowledge and understanding from starting in NAIS Pudong in August. She strives for perfection and produces work of the highest quality. As a consequence, she is making fantastic progress and fully deserves the science laureate. Let's all congratulate Lea.

Global Campus

Tutor groups  should be finalizing their  Rube Goldberg entries to see which entry will go through to be included in our whole school Rube Goldberg. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a winner!


  • March  - Be Ambitious challenge 1 winners announced

Sodexo Lunch Card

As you know, in order for the students to purchase food in the Hub they must use a lunch card. It is essential that students use the correct system for purchasing food. Cash top-ups to the card can be made at the payment counter in the Hub. Students then hand their card to the Sodexo staff at the till to buy their food. They should hand in their card not state their card number. Please could you support the school system by ensuring that every student has their own card available for use.

Through the classroom keyhole


The Year 9 native class has made posters and a presentation about a famous poet, Li Bai. They are going to be learning more about Li Bai’s poem next week.​ See photos attached.

Student Reporters

Taking a different approach this week with some classroom stories coming from our newly elected student reporters. Thank you 9A for your contributions.


We did our written Assessment. We have also been practicing for our assessment on theatre of cruelty and what it takes to make a good piece.

Clarissa Lum


This week in French we finished our assessment preparation. We had to answer a sheet that was filled with questions that will occur on the test the following week. Madame Malcolm (our teacher) marked our work and we revised and practised for the upcoming writing assessment.

Tommaso Carnelli


For English we revised how to construct PEA paragraphs for our test to build up our levels. Also we went back to Act 3 Scene 1 to make sure we understood the language that was used.

Julien Francois


This week in P.E. we have been doing badminton. As most of us have already played badminton we have been focused on further developing our serves and also increasing our movement around the court. We also had our first lessons of tag rugby which were very successful and a lot of fun!

Amelia Haynes


In History this week we have been learning about Hitler's rise to power and what life was like in Nazi society, specifically the Nazi policy on women and children. We've spent our last couple of weeks looking at life in Germany after WW1 and how the treaty of Versailles affected the average German citizen. We've done a lot of source analysis work, focusing on how the Nazi's wanted people to behave. 

Kristie Hoi Tung Li


In our previous lesson we were doing our end-of-unit exam. We were required to draw other people and use our tonal shading skills to add detail to the facial features and to boost our abilities since the start of the year.
