The ELC celebrated the semester finish with their annual Winter Concert and potluck lunch, featuring wonderful performances by all preschool and kindergarten students. Much of the work performed was written, designed and created by the students themselves! Great job ELC students! (and parents too!)
The NIS Robotics Team participated in their first competition this past weekend, joining the "First Lego League" Competition at Nagoya station. Consisting of middle school students and led mainly by four high school students, the team learned much at their first-ever competition, a day-long event that involved several other teams in the region. Congratulations Dolphins!

As part of the MYP Children's Theatre unit, Grade 7 students performed their devised Drama pieces for an Early Years audience, basing their plays on 3 well-known fairytales. The plays were designed to incorporate exaggerated performances, audience participation and comedy, and the ELC students particularly enjoyed joining in with pointing out the naughty bear and catching home-made vegetables which were used as props. The actors answered questions from the audience to help them prepare for their own play next week. Well done 7W for putting on a great show!
The PTA organized a calligraphy class for interested parents. Parents were introduced to the art of Japanese calligraphy and wrote a 'Kanji' character of their choice with sumi-ink and brush. They even learned how to spell their name in Kanji. Special thanks to the PTA and the volunteer calligraphy teachers!
