Newsletter - 12 June 2020
Vol. 7. Issue 35

Congratulations to our 'Class of 2020' who graduated last weekend! You can read more about the graduation ceremony here. We hope our seniors and their families enjoyed the live streamed ceremony and photos from the event can be viewed by clicking the image above.

Today marks the final day of end of year examinations for our Grade 11 students. Well done to these students who have studied diligently for these exams.

This week, we have been able to welcome back PK1-Grade 5 students into school daily. Everything is continuing to run smoothly and we are happy to see so many students back in the classrooms.

Now, as we come to the end of another busy school year here at NAISR, it is a time to reflect on what a year it has been. We are so proud of our wonderful students, teachers and the entire community who have met the challenges of this difficult year head-on.

Next week is the final week of school. Students will attend various closing ceremonies, during which we will celebrate their achievements and provide closure to the year. Unfortunately, this year we are unable to invite parents to join us for these end-of-year celebrations as we have none is previous years. However, we will be recording the ceremonies and will be sure to share these recordings with families immediately afterwards.

Please be reminded that the last day of school is next Thursday, 18 June and all students will be dismissed at 12:00pm.

All the best from our family to yours.

2019-20 Yearbooks
Throughout the duration of the Corona crisis, the company which prints our yearbooks was temporarily closed. This means that unfortunately the NAISR yearbooks will not be distributed to students on the last day of school like usual. We expect delivery to be within the first month of the next school year (2020-21). For those families leaving us at the end of this school year, yearbooks will be posted. We apologise for the delay.
Summer Leadership Course
Our Nord Anglia sister school, College Champittet in Switzerland, is offering two week Leadership courses over the Summer break for 11 to 18-year-olds, to help improve their communication, organisational and teamwork skills to make them great leaders.

Grade 5  ES --> MS
There will be an opportunity for Grade 5 students to learn about Middle School from the current 6th Graders, and have some of their questions answered early next week.  
S2 Report Cards
Teachers are busy finalising Semester 2 Report Cards for their students and an email will be sent to all parents once they become available on the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Please note that this year's S2 report cards will be simplified due to the fact that distance learning took place for most of the semester. Please check to ensure you can successfully log into your PowerSchool account. If you cannot access the parent portal, please email communications@naisr.nl.
Withdrawal Form
Next week, we will be preparing PDF copies of Reports Cards and Progress Reports for students who are withdrawing from NAISR in June. If your family is leaving NAISR at the end of this school year, please complete the online Student Withdrawal Form to ensure that you receive a copy of your child(ren)'s school records and to officially withdraw your child(ren) from our School. Thank you.
