After a much-needed break for our students and staff here at NACIS we enter the final eight weeks of this school year. At the end of last week, in the warm and pleasant April, it was lovely to see pink elements all around our campus. We were really impressed by what we saw and what we experienced.
In the theatre, the “Hearing Bullying Stories, Showing Your Justice” sharing session drew everyone together. The teachers, parents and student representatives shared the bullying stories they experienced or witnessed, showing their wisdom and bravery. Based on the stories, we carried out dialogues and interactions, through which students had in-depth understanding and insight into school bullying and the coping strategies. Then all teachers and students shew their kindness with warm hugs, smiling faces and sincere invitations. They were determined to respect and support each other! The sharing session culminated in the passionate song named Without you. Students expressed their attitude of anti-bullying in the form of singing and dancing.
Coming to the message area, teachers and students picked up their pens and wrote down their heartfelt gratitude or apologies. In this way, they conveyed kindness and friendliness to others.
In the sunshine, we joined our hands and raised the KT board, saying “being friendly to others, saying no to bullying” and “warm our world with love”. As the photographer pressed the camera shutter, these moments were kept permanently. We sincerely wished that we would be lifelong friends.
It was also pleasing for students to gather under the tree, have some ice-cream balls, make new friends and exchange their deep feelings. The sweet and unforgettable memory will be cherished for life long.
It was the second time that Pink Day had been held at NACIS Campus. Every April, Pink Day marks a pivotal moment for all of us. We hope that every child can have a loving heart, convey friendliness with actions and say “no” to bullying. We wish to see love and positive energy at NACIS campus all the time.

G3: I have learned to help others and be friendly to others. If I am bullied, I will seek helps on my own and I will not let bullying continue.

G4: This year was the second time for us to participate in Pink Day. In the previous Pink Day, we wore pink clothes and ate ice-cream. This year’s activities were even more meaningful. We were attracted by the performance, speech and form. Besides, we wrote the wish cards and took group photos. We had a deeper understanding of the importance of respecting, helping, and protecting ourselves and others. We learned to be more united and friendly and made up our minds to say no to bullying. We will always keep respect and kindness in mind and work together towards a caring campus environment.

A huge thanks to all the team here at NACIS who put together this day for our students and a special mention to Ms. Doreen, our PSHE lead, Ms.Rose, our Primary Psychologist. We have attached a video of the day and hope that the students enjoyed the day as much as we did. The messages shared over the day and in the weeks leading up to this day are exceptionally important and we continue to work with our students to know how to speak out against behaviour which affects them in our school.
