NIS Lions Play BSN Foxes in Friendly Volleyball Games

Our Lions Girls and Boys Volleyball teams hit the courts of the NIS Blue Gym for a friendly competition with their counterparts from the British School Nanjing, the Foxes. It was a great way to foster sportsmanship, relationship-building, and friendship within the city’s international school community – and have fun in the process! Check out the highlights below.

Performing Arts/Music News

There was an excited buzz in the air on Monday as 35 performers crammed into the Black Box for their very first production practice. The essential (though slightly boring) bits were covered first, including the importance of learning lines and keeping to rehearsal schedules. This year's casting is very impressive because we have some students playing up to four roles - we even have two performers playing the lead role of Dorothy!  This means students need to watch their rehearsal schedules very closely.

Afterwards, the Music ensemble room was filled with singing as the ensemble, and later a soli, learned their first songs together. The students listened very carefully, followed directions, and showed a great deal of improvement. If this is how much progress they make after only one rehearsal, we know their final performances will be amazing!

Swimming News

Roaring Start to Year for Sea Lions at First Swim Meet!

It was an afternoon of personal excellence as we kicked off the first swim meet of the school year, “Make a Splash!” It was another opportunity from our incredible swimming programme for student athletes to improve their swimming skills and achieve success at their own level of ability, from novice to competitive swimmer. Take a look at some of the highlights!

The Wizard of Oz

This year's Secondary School Production is coming in February!
