During this special challenging period, NACIS choir brought the online chorus of the song Love is in our Hearts to Nord Anglia schools all over the world, delivering their sincere greetings to those places affected by the epidemic.
“We believe in the power of music,” Ms. Sarah, the initiator said on the choir’s online message space, “Let’s deliver warmth and power with love!”
Less than one day after the initiative was launched, children signed up actively one after another.
This time, 23 primary and secondary students from NACIS choir joined in the chorus. They come from different grades. Students were really excited to perform with their fellows in such a peculiar form online.
Some students played guitar while singing. Some sang with piano accompaniment while others used sign language to express their profound love. The exquisite performance brought us warmth and hope.
We believe in the power of music
According to Ms. Sarah, it was an unforgettable experience to gather the students together in this way. Students should keep in mind that what is happening in the world is closely related to us. As a member of the world community, we can express our love and care in this special way. We can take actions to transfer positive energy. We would like to show gratitude to those who made contributions fearlessly during this special period: thank you for your hard work!
As a 12-year school, NACIS enables its primary and secondary students to interact with each other in a variety of ways. The online chorus this time, the recent World Children’s Day lecture on children’s rights and the warm bookmark exchange during the Anti-bullying Week are all examples. These activities not only help children of all ages develop communication and social skills, but also help them develop their team spirit.
The holistic education at NACIS Shanghai
At NACIS Shanghai, based on music, we build the target of holistic education .
The online chorus this time enabled students to learn to sing a song without face-to-face helps from teachers. They had to pay attention to all details while singing on their own. They explored more deeply into the music knowledge. In order to make the performance more colorful, students exchanged their ideas online and inspired each other, which once again enhanced their team spirit.
At NACIS choir, music is not confined to knowledge on textbooks. Instead, it has become a crucial way to stimulate students’ all-round development.
At NACIS Shanghai, there are over 150 ECAs available for students. Besides, there are school sports teams for different events. In September, when phase 2 is open to public, we will provide children with more high-quality spaces for activities including a 550-seat theatre, music studios and a new swimming pool.
Our school is willing to provide students with a platform, aiming at letting them discover their own hobbies outside and become better selves through colorful school life.
Words in the end
Though being far apart, our love remains unchanged. Though we are in all parts of the world, as long as there is love in our hearts, we will finally overcome all difficulties. We are together regardless of the distance.
The children's sweet voices and smiling faces are like sunshine, bringing warmth to each of us. Let's look forward to the day when we return to school. Let's "turn a new page together and reunite in our home -- NACIS".
