Volunteering to make a difference is the core of all student Leadership opportunities within our school. I am very lucky to have two excellent role models for all in my Head Girl and Boy, whose enthusiasm to make a difference is there for all to see. I am very keen to involve them in as many parts of school life as possible, so I thought I would give them some space in my newsletter:
Good morning Parents,
Hello my name is Sophia Werner, I am ten years old and this is my fourth year at NAIS. I am very proud to be Head Girl this year and have such a big role in Primary school.
Hello my name is Arran Beaumont, I am ten years old and I have been at NAIS since year one. I am excited to be representing our school and having such a big responsibility this year. I hope to make this school a better place and come up with lots of good ideas as Head Boy.
This year we are very pleased to be Head Boy and Head Girl of Primary school because it is a very exciting and important role. In this week’s assembly, the topic was cooperation which is a very important part of school life when trying to learn new things whilst working together.
This week when we were handing out ‘Star of the Week’ certificates, we felt proud to be representing our school, it was an honor to have this role and responsibility.
Remember, a small group of thoughtful people can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead
Thank you ,
Sophia and Arran.
Well done Sophia and Arran, I hope to give them an opportunity to write in my newsletter monthly so that they can update you on the work of the school council.
Next week is a big one in the calendar of the school, not because of the Monday holiday, but because Thursday is International Day. All week Primary classes will be studying countries from around the world, but Thursday will include two key elements; The International Food Fair and the Parade of Nations. All of our students have been sorted into their countries and will walk behind their country’s banner during the parade which starts at 9am. All of our Nursey and Reception children will parade together as ‘the united Nations of Early Years’. This is always a really great occasion and I know that most families are already planning their outfits, remember children can come in National costume or the colours of their flag. The food fair will allow the children to try flavors from around the world supplied by our amazing parents. This is one of my favorite events of the year and I hope you will all support this opportunity to celebrate how international we are at NAIS.
Our teachers are currently writing a Settling-In report for every child in their class. This Settling in Report provides you with an overview on how your child has initially settled into their new class. It consists of a checklist of various personal, social and learning skills which children should be developing and mastering over the coming year as well as additional comments by the class teacher. There will be an opportunity to meet your child’s class teacher and Maths teacher (Year 3-6) at the Academic Review Evening, Tuesday 16th and Thursday 18th October. Booking details will be shared after the holiday. I always believe a good start is very important in a school year, and this report is designed highlight the way your child has approached the beginning of the academic year.
Please do enjoy the long weekend, we look forward to welcoming students back on Tuesday
