IB News - 8th April 2016

07 April 2016

We hope that you all enjoyed your spring break and it is good to see the students back refreshed and ready for the final term of 2015-16!  Where has the year gone?

The countdown has long been ticking for the Year 13 students and with only 25 days left until their final day at school, the pressure is truly starting to mount towards their IB exams.  Many of our students are taking advantage of the revision sessions on offer but we hope to see an even greater uptake in these final three weeks.  That contact time with the teacher remains all important at this stage.

  • 7 min
  • Aleks and Mari at the duet competition
  • Tanzania trip

To lighten the mood a little, Year 13 organised a lunchtime duet competition with star performances from Gabriel, the two Aimées, Emiliano, Lucas, Aleks, Mari, Adriano and even Mrs Howard! 

This lunchtime fun was closely followed by a 7-minute workout organised by the student leaders this week.  Heart rates were racing and blood was pumping just enough to get our Year 12 students over their postprandial slump and ready for their afternoon lessons.

Before the holidays, parents, teachers and students enjoyed a musical soirée with spectacular instrumental performances from individual students, the IB choir, the Community Choir and the younger students. Once again, the IB Choir never fail to impress with their dedication and commitment, but additionally their enjoyment of performing the work that they have been rehearsing. Clearly Mr Graham is doing much to inspire our young musicians.

Immediately after the performance, our Year 12 students were whisked away to begin their amazing Tanzanian adventure where they spent 7 days. Here our students reportedly surpassed expectation with their positivity and hard work; building smoke-less stoves, installing solar panels, constructing goat sheds and putting up teachers’ accommodation at a local primary school. There was, of course, time for some safari and hiking and we are very proud of the way our students approached this opportunity.

Finally, we hope Year 13 parents can make it to our event next Thursday 14th April for guidance on how to support your children through the examinations. 

Higher Education

The Year 12 students are currently focusing on higher education in their Guidance sessions and all have been allotted a 45 minute one-to-one interview to discuss their ideas and options. 

Monday 18th April – Oxford and Nottingham Universities will come to NAIS Pudong to introduce students to their programmes and admissions systems.
