      Principal’s Message March 1, 2017

      The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out.—Proverbs 18:15

      Every school in the world professes itself to be learning-focused.

      While NIS is a learning-focused school as well, what’s more important is that we are constantly reflecting on how we can continuously improve learning and offer the best education to our students and families.

      Over the next few weeks in the school newsletter and also in a display in the hall, we will share with our community how NIS views learning and our shared vision of the kinds of students we want to develop. We want to begin with the end in mind when planning learning experiences and instilling character development in our students.

      The International Primary Curriculum establishes a strong culture of learning in the school and we will explain the 9 criteria we follow to embed great learning at NIS.

      Principal’s Message February 15, 2017

      Arise, for this is your task, and we are with you; be strong and do it.—Ezra 10:4

      Three-Way Conferences (or also known as Student-Led Conferences) are taking place this Friday. It is a time for the student, parents and teachers to meet and celebrate the learning that has been done thus far in the school year and to identify areas where goals can be set to continuously grow academically, socially, spiritually and physically.

      Normally, during a parent-teacher conference the teacher would be explaining to parents the progress of the child, but three-way conferences are student-driven and is an opportunity for the child to share about their learning experiences from their perspective, and understanding of themselves after reflection. It is a time for parents to encourage and recognise the child’s efforts and to set goals together so the child knows what to work on in the coming term, parents know how to support at home and teachers can also support at school.

      Some students are anxious during parent-teacher conferences because they are not in the classroom during the meeting, but for three-way conferences, it can be a different kind of nervousness. Children could be cautious and worried that they may be reprimanded by their parents and teacher at the same time. Please have a talk with your child before Friday about coming to the conference. Let them know that you look forward to hearing about them talk about their learning so you can en-courage and support them in their learning journey and development. The focus is on moving for-ward together.
