Lost & Found…

In the spirit of our continuous push for recycling, we are kindly asking parents to inform the Lost & Found team about all unwanted clothing items or accessories from the L&F area. It can be done either through NAIS Lost & Found WeChat group or by sending an email to .

Please find following the new ‘Rules’ in regard to the Lost and Found area. We have a wonderful group of volunteers who are working super hard to ensure the Lost and Found items find their rightful owners and that the area stays tidy. They give up their time to go to school every week to sort the items out, list them all and send the details out on wechat to us all (please see QR code below to join the group). We ask that you help by making sure you let them know when you or your child has collected an item (there is a list on the wall in the Lost & Found area for items to be marked off when the owner claims them). Please be respectful of the process and try as far as possible to pick-up items that your child has misplaced.


  1. Lost and Found (L&F) is located next to the Main Reception at school. If you cannot find it, please ask the receptionist.
  2. All lost items, including non-uniform articles, are placed in the 3 light blue boxes in the L&F area on a daily basis.
  3. Lost school uniforms and P.E. kits will be listed and updated on Mondays by the L&F Team.
  4. The updated list of lost items will be posted on both the L&F WeChat group and stuck to the wall in the L&F area each Monday.
  5. Photos of non-uniform items will be posted on the L&F WeChat group each Monday.
  6. Only school staff or a member of the L&F Team can return claimed items to a person picking up their lost item.
  7. Anyone can claim their L&F items any day of the week, but must:
    • ask for assistance from the person at Main Reception, a teacher or a member of the L&F Team
    • check the list and cross off any items collected;
    • note the name and class of the person claiming the item on the list
  8. Sorted and listed items will be hung on the rack or placed in boxes which should be searched through only during handover (as per the procedure in point 6 above) in order to keep clear records of all returned items.
  9. All items not claimed within six months of the school year will be sold. Details of these sales will be posted in the school newsletter.
  10. All money collected through the school sales will be given to the Community Group fund for charity.
  11. All items that are not sold in the sale will be donated to charity or recycled.
  12. P.E. kits in the L&F area may be loaned to students who have forgotten or misplaced theirs on any given day. The P.E. kits which are available for borrowing are labelled and kept in a separate box, clearly marked ‘P.E. Kits for Loan’. P.E. kits that are borrowed should be returned to the same box washed and clean.
  13. You can join NAIS Lost & Found WeChat group by scanning the QR Code below.



We very much appreciate your help and look forward to your continued support.
