It was the day that our entire community had been waiting for since starting school online in August. After three weeks of online learning, our Secondary School students from Grade 6 to 12 reunited with their classmates and teachers. We are all well on the way to returning to the NIS life we know and love.
“We are so thrilled to welcome our students back to their second home here on campus,” said Mr. Laurie McLellan, School Director. “We extend our sincerest gratitude and heartfelt thanks to everyone whose efforts helped ensure our campus could gain approval to re-open safely for our students. So many members of our faculty, staff, and parents have worked tirelessly to make this day possible. We will continue preparing for the return of everyone in our community.”
Prior to our Secondary students returning to campus on Thursday, NIS staff followed official government regulations and procedures to create the conditions for a safe return, including a comprehensive inspection which our school passed last Friday.
On September 13, we will see the return of the rest of our students in Primary School, and our entire community is excited to welcome our youngest learners back to our wonderful campus.
Take a look at highlights from the day as our Secondary School students reunited with their friends and began learning together on campus again!
