Nearly two years ago, one of the best loved members of NAIS HK’s community departed our shores for an epic journey that would put Phileas Fogg or Michael Palin to shame. Norman Jupiter Bear, who was named and introduced to the world by students and teachers in Years 1 and 2, has had an incredible voyage taking in the broad avenues of Washington DC, the mountainous metropolis of Mexico, the steamy jungles of Vietnam, the dry deserts of Abu Dhabi and the frozen Great Wall around Beijing to name but a few. He’s witnessed solar eclipses, met up with fellow globe-trotting ursine at Paddington Station, been in snow storms and sand storms and brought joy and raised international mindedness to thousands of children at Nord Anglia schools around the world.
He had a quiet arrival in school earlier this week from his recent residential in Guangzhou and has been catching up on his jetlag in Mr Bishop’s office. Over the next few weeks we’ll be giving Norman the warm welcome he richly deserves and involving him in all sorts of fun and exciting activities to share his experiences across our Global Campus.
