It started with a small group of dedicated and well-organised NIS staff and faculty volunteers gathered in front of Gate No. 3 of Nanjing Normal University on a hot August afternoon. Soon the long, covered walkway to the gym was filled with a socially distanced sea of masked NIS parents and students wearing red, green, and blue house shirts. Passports, ID cards, and green sukangma codes in hand, members of our community were taken through a process streamlined from start to finish by the efforts of our NIS team supporting local Xianlin volunteers.
With our older students and some parents vaccinated with their first dose, we have taken another step towards greater safety from COVID-19 in our school. Congratulations to our community for coming together to support this excellent Qixia District initiative.
