Mr Zarin would also like to share this overview (attached) of PTA activities over the past year, and the plans for the year ahead. Please remember that all PTA letters and information are uploaded to Firefly. Click here.


HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR PHOTOS – We have 888 fabulous photos in our NAIS Album!

Mr Cooklin, aka Albus Dumbledore, added his thanks: "It was an outstanding event. It was lovely to see so many families and children come along for a fun evening. I want to say a huge thank you to the PTA, teachers and volunteer parents for making it such a success!"


PRIMARY ASSEMBLY – Star of the Week (Music) & 4C Assembly

It was a busy Assembly this morning, which started with Bobby Li playing the piano as all the children came in. We then welcome Caren Wu from the Heep Hong Society to receive a cheque from our Windsor Heads of House Skylar Zhu and Ryan Chu. The Windsor Bounce-a-thon raised an impressive $16,175 for the Heep Hong Society. Ms Wu and Mr Bishop later spoke about inviting some of the older students to visit the projects that the charity runs in Hong Kong so that they can get involved first-hand in how the money we raise is used.

Up next were 22 mini Cats in the Hats from Mr Davidson’s class who shared with us their interpretation of Dr Seuss’ Cat in the Hat. 

Finally, we celebrated achievement and effort in Music today. Please congratulate our Stars of the Week:

Year 1:  Declan Chew, Jontae Law, Terry Ye, Aryan Lokesh, Jack Hignett
Year 2:  Asel Alibekova, Lawrence Doe, Mila Nazer, Lydia Forster, Kaavya Karnavat
Year 3:  Abraham Lai, Seowon Byun, Antje Singson, Natalie Kung, Kaitlyn Chak
Year 4:  Felix Zhang, Calvin Te, George Su, Angel Ju
Year 5:  Vita Tang, Gareth Kwong, Yuzu Murase, Sonia Cheung
Year 6:  Caresse Yang, Sunny Li, Zane Freeman

 

SECONDARY ASSEMBLY 

Mr Bishop led a though-provoking Assembly this morning which began with a short film about Remembrance Day, a memorial day observed to remember member of the armed forces who have died in conflicts around the world. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of fighting in World War I in 1918. Mr Bishop asked the students about why we continue to commemorate this day, and spoke about the significance of the poppy that many of us wear at this time of the year. You may wish to watch this moving five minute film with child.

The following students also received their high commendation for effort and achievement in music:
Year 7:  Gigi Liu, Nina Finch
Year 8:  Rebecca Chen, Anni Hangasjarvi
 

APPROVAL FOR OUR NEW CLASSROOM BLOCK & PITCH

We have received building approval for our new extension to the Lam Tin Campus, which will give us the classes and sports areas to take our current students up to year 11 (the end of their Cambridge GCSEs). The building work will start next January, and should be completed within one year. We’re also still working hard with the government to secure a second campus and we look forward to sharing updates with you all.


NEW YEAR 4 CLASS

We have had such high demand for Year 4 places from some lovely families that we have decided to add an extra class, starting in January. Many of you may remember that we did the same thing last year when we started Mr Boast’s class in January 2015. We have no doubt that you’ll make our new year 4 students and families feel very welcome.


YEAR 5 – HIKE TO DEVILS PEAKClick here for the Year 5 blog

This week, our year 5s set off on their own exploration of Devil’s Peak. It was a great way of developing compass and navigation skills as well as using code-breaking techniques to unearth some hidden treasure. Remember to visit your year 5 blog on Firefly to learn more about this trip and to see some lovely photos.


NAIS Knights in Phuket (5-8 Nov)

Our Knights soccer teams have made us proud with their behaviour on and off the pitch so far. The girls were the first team up this morning and, while they lost the match, Miss Byrne overheard them saying: “even though we lost, we’re proud as we’re a new team and we tried our best”. These are the kind of sporting values Mr Pate is keen to encourage in our teams. The boys team was up next and went down in a close and hard fought game: 2-1. You can see some photos here.


NAIS NETBALL KNIGHTS

Our junior Netball team has been training hard for their tournament today in Aberdeen. Coach Amber said the team had a really positive mind set going into their first game, despite having a few of their key players away with at the football tournament in Phuket. Mr Bishop spoke to the team before they left and reminded them they were proudly representing their school, both on and off the Court, and that all he wanted from them was that they enjoy the experience do their very best. Go Knights!


YEAR 8 CAMP – Sai Kung – Click here for reports from the Camp, including photos and a fabulous video

Report from Mrs Reid: “Now that the bonfire has died down, the tents have been packed away and the pupils (and teachers!) have caught up with their sleep, we have been able to spend some time reflecting on our experience in this year's team challenge. Everyone involved in the camping trip agreed that not only was it tremendous fun but also an important lesson in team building, cooperation and leadership, with a good dose of orienteering skills thrown in too …”


BOX OF HOPE – Boxes will be picked up on 11 November

We have been stunned by your generosity as our wall of Boxes of Hope has grown in front of our Nord Anglia Map. This is yet another lovely example of how our families support charitable causes in Hong Kong and the region. You still have time to prepare a last box over the weekend, if you’ve not done so already. You can see more details here.


JOIN OUR MO-VEMBER TEAM – Grow a bushy moustache in November and raise funds for men’s health issues

It is only 6 November and we already have some pretty scary moustaches among our male teachers. Thankfully it is all for a good cause – promoting awareness and raising funds for men’s health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer. Click here to join our NAIS Team or donate to this fine group of Mo-bros. Mr Reid has just walked into my office and is already sporting a pretty scary trucker-style moustache!

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
