Update from the Parent Council - by Mr Gregor Schneider - Chair
At the Parent Council meeting on Tuesday, 3rd April 2018, the following update was provided on parent's questions:
Internal Communication in Primary: Parents asked for a more standardized approach to communication between school and primary parents. If a tool is used it should be across grades instead of different communication tools and styles in different grades. Mr. Richard will take this up and additionally informed about current discussions regarding a clear communication strategy and digital calendar.
Preference for locally produced products: Parents were asking that local products should be preferred (examples: school photos, swim suits). Mr. Richard informed that locally produced products will be used if they meet the quality requirements of NISC, which was not always the case, therefore occasionally non-local producers are chosen.
Percentage IB graduates at NISC: The percentage of IB graduates at NISC is high, around 96 per cent in 2017. A follow up question arose about for which universities NISC graduates qualify with their IB diploma. Further information can be found by viewing this link on our school website.
