G4A - An Amazing Tour to Zhujiajiao
4A had an amazing time visiting the ancient water town Zhujiajiao last Thursday! They experienced the beautiful canals, history and scenery whilst taking photos of, and walking over, the many ancient bridges such as the famous Fangsheng bridge dating from the sixteenth century. The class also loved visiting the Damajiao Culture House and got creative by designing their own festive shoe designs, before painting them colourfully. A true highlight of the trip was visiting the ancient Daqing post office and posting postcards in the ornate letterbox. The trip was accompanied by some enthusiastic buying of souvenirs and delicious snacks from the varied street sellers. We hope you enjoy the photos as much as the class did the trip!
Secondary House Activities
Last Friday, our house competition saw all students and houses compete in a NACIS ‘Fun Run’ and ‘Tug-of-War’ competition to earn additional house points. For Friday’s ‘Fun Run’ students completed the running circuit with each student gaining 1 house point for each lap - meaning there were plenty of points to win! In total, secondary students ran more than 1,000 laps! We’d like to celebrate the contribution from our Grade 6 students who contributed a huge number of laps to their houses! We also had a house ‘Tug-of-War’ competition which was a great success in our first house competition in September. We’d like to thank those students who showed great team spirit and tried their best in this challenge. Results and points will be revealed to the students this Friday in our final House meeting before the Christmas break. Who will be in first place? The most important thing is that all the students worked together collaboratively in their houses to achieve a common goal of being ambitious and trying their best. It was a successful afternoon due to the hard-work and determination shown once again from all of our NACIS secondary students.
