Coming Up After Chinese New Year…

Welcome Back Lunch – Wednesday 22nd February, 2017

We would be delighted if you could join us for our slightly belated 'Welcome Back Lunch' which will be held at El Willy on the Bund. El Willy is a fantastic venue and this lunch is always well attended. If you haven’t joined us before this is a great opportunity for parents to get together for an informal lunch, meet new people or just catch up with old friends. 

If you'd like to come along please put 250RMB into an envelope with your Name, contact email and mobile phone number written on the outside and drop the envelope to the Main Reception desk at school (or ask your child to do so on your behalf). In order to ensure you don’t miss out, please send your money in by Wednesday, 15th February at the latest. 

Note: if you have any food allergies or are vegetarian please indicate on the envelope.

The mouth watering menu is attached and includes a glass of Cava on arrival and a glass of wine with your meal (or soft drinks if you prefer).

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

For any queries please contact either:

Didi Dache course – Date to be Confirmed

As most of you know, Uber is no longer operating in China. Didi Dache is the Chinese equivelant to this. In order to help you set-up an account and understand how to use it, we will run a course at school. Dates are yet to be confirmed.


Watertown Visit – Date to be Confirmed

We are planning another visit to a water town some time in Term 2. These visits are a great chance to see a different side of Shanghai, from taking a boat trip down river, to trying out some of the huge array of street food, to doing a little shopping in the stalls along the roads.More information will be shared in the next newsletter on dates and times.


Sip and Paint Evening – Date to be Confirmed

We thought we might try something new and get Mums and Dads along to a Sip and Paint evening at school. As the name suggests, we will be sipping wine while creating some spectacular masterpieces with the paintbrush. The evening will be led by an artist who will provide us with the inspiration to paint, and guide us through our strokes as we go. You do not need to be an artist to come along and join in. It’s all just a bit of fun!


The week in Review…


Casual Drinks Night – to those of you who were able to make it along to Big Bamboo last Saturday night, thanks very much for joining us. A lot of fun was had by all. I’m so glad the cold didn’t keep you all from staying in and snuggling up on the sofa.

Temple Fair - it was also wonderful to see all the family on Sunday at the Temple Fair. Again, it was cold, but the sun was shining which made it a perfect day for the children to have a run around outside, and then come in to see the entertainment and have fun with the arts and crafts when they needed to warm up.  Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard to make it a wonderful day.


Food for thought…


One of the local charities which the Community Group support with the funds we raise from the events we run is Heart to Heart Shanghai.  This is a non-profit community outreach organisation which supports Chinese children from extremely poor families who are undergoing heart surgery.  They provide sponsorship to cover the costs of life saving heart surgery, manage and volunteer in two hospital playrooms and donate school libraries in poor rural areas.

Heart to Heart sold heart bears at the NAIS Christmas Bazaar.  The proceeds from these sales helped sponsor a five year old boy, Peng Yuxi, through heart surgery in Yodak Cardio-Thoracic Hospital in Shanghai.  Peng Yuxi had his much needed (second) open heart surgery on December 28th and has recently been transferred from the Intensive Care Unit to the Recovery Unit.  He is progressing well.  His family wish to pass on their thanks to the NAIS community for supporting their son’s surgery. There was no way that they could have afforded this life-saving operation without your help. His life and chances going forward should be very different now - as will his family’s. 

community group

It is because of children like Peng Yuxi and other vulnerable people within China that we work so hard within the Community Group to raise funds at our events.  Every Yuan you give makes a difference.


Tip of the Week…


Have you ever heard of ‘Smart Panda China?’ They offer help with so many things to make your life easier in China. They give one-to-one help on anything from setting up Alipay or Didi, buying train tickets and arranging delivery, or ordering from Taobao (or returning an item that you no longer want). You can literally ask them anything and they will try their hardest. They have a personal service, so will come to your house (rates vary depending on time and difficulty), or they can help you over wechat (rates also vary depending on what is needed). To contact them via wechat use the ID: smartpandachina


The next newsletter from the Community Group will not be for two weeks. Wishing you all a joyful and celebratory Chinese New Year.

Sip and Paint 之夜





                  休闲之夜 – 感谢每一位来参加我们上周六在Big Bamboo 活动的朋友们。我们度过了一个愉快的夜晚。我们很高兴寒冷并没有将你留在家中。

                  庙会 – 非常开心在上周日的庙会中见到这么多家庭。虽然很冷,但是阳光明媚,对于孩子们来说真是完美的一天,在户外嘻戏,然后来到温暖的室内,有这么多有趣的活动可以参与。感谢学校的每一位教职员付出努力,为我们带来了美妙的一天。







上海心连心在我们的圣诞集市售卖过爱心小熊。这些捐款将用于支助一个五岁名叫 Peng Yuxi的男孩在上海远大心胸医院进行心脏手术。Peng Yuxi 在12月28日进行了急需的心脏手术,前不久已经从重病监护室转到了普通病房。他的恢复良好。他的父母希望通过我们转达他们的感谢。如果没有您的帮助,他们不可能负担得起这个挽救他们儿子生命的手术。这个孩子和他的整个家庭今后的生活也将从此改变。


正因为在中国有像Peng Yuxi 那样的很多需要帮助的人,我们家委会一直以来都在我们的活动中尽力筹款,希望帮助他们。我们的每一元支助都将带来改变。
