A group of grade 9 students performed scenes of 'Fugee' by Abi Morgan, a scripted piece about teenage asylum seekers living in the UK for the Gr. 8 and 9 students on Wednesday, Feb. 14 in the Drama Room. It was a great performance that highlighted the stress and emotions of young adults caught in difficult situations across cultures that were the fault of adults and regional politics.
The grade 10 students and parents had an opportunity to look ahead and learn more about the last two years of their high school at NIS at the "IBDP Information Session" held on Tuesday, Feb. 13. After a general overview of the two-year DP program that they will embark upon from August, teachers presented course details and provided a chance for both students and parents to talk about the courses and view textbooks and other resources to help them make choices to move forward.

High school students put on two performances to a nearly full house on Tuesday evening, Feb. 6. "Two Face True Face", written and directed by the Gr. 10 cast, and "Fossils" both focused on teenagers, with parents specifically relating to much of the uncomfortably humorous dialogue in "Fossils". Amazing performances by all! Special thanks to all who helped and supported the Drama department.
