From about two weeks away from the beginning of the new semester, NACIS is preparing for welcoming all students to school. There are changes and improvements in every corner of the school.
The Swedish educator Ellen Key said: “The environment plays a very important role in one’s growth, and a good learning and living environment is the basis for children to cultivate correct thoughts and excellent personalities. Therefore, we hope our students can thrive in a safe and healthy environment.
How Are the Epidemic Prevention Measures Implemented?
With the recurrence of the epidemic, NACIS has taken the strict epidemic prevention measures to ensure the school safety and hygiene. Our security guards check the green codes (health code and tour code) every day at the school gate. In addition, all staff who leave Shanghai after July 22 must enter school with a negative nucleic acid report.
In order to ensure the effective epidemic prevention, the NACIS security team conducts training on epidemic prevention and safety procedures in weekly meetings, such as the health code check and emergency preparedness, etc. The annual school security training certificate is also being renewed in full swing to ensure the professionalism of all security personnel. Cleaning staff have not stopped working during the summer vacation. Every area is ventilated, cleaned, and disinfected three times a day in accordance with school cleaning regulations, including classrooms, aisles, restaurants, classroom carpets, elevators and door handles, etc.
New Changes At NACIS
The core of the British early education system EYFS is that every child is unique, which also coincides with our educational philosophy. The subtle design of NACIS contains our continuous exploration of personalized education.
In the primary teaching building, we expanded the original STEAM classrooms into a new STEAM corridor which consists of three 130 square meter classrooms. It is 4 times larger than before, providing better space and more high-quality learning opportunities for students to challenge themselves.
Children will conduct the thematic learning and immerse themselves in the world of science with their classmates and teachers in the dynamic learning space. In the classroom layout, each table are equipped with rollers, which are light and movable. In group discussion, students can be classified into several groups. In class discussion, students can form a circle or a row when displaying their learning results. Their works will be displayed in the corridor outside the classroom, where they will confidently express their creative ideas to teachers and parents, continue to learn new content, enhance what they have learned, and improve the whole process of effective learning.
All non-traditional classroom spaces have been upgraded based on safety and comfort during the summer vacation.
Outdoor facilities including long tables and chairs, and swimming pool facilities have been renovated during the summer
The grass of the football field has also been filled with rubber particles to ensure the safety of students
The floor of the theater and lobby has been renovated to ensure leveling safety
The floor of the dance room has been replaced with an anti-skid rubber floor so that students can perform in a safer environment
NACIS puts the health and safety of all staff and students at the top of school construction and development.
During the construction, we strictly abide by the national standards and put environmental protection and safety as our top priority. In order to ensure a safe and comfortable learning and living environment for staff and students at the beginning of the school year, all newly completed facilities have undergone air quality sampling and testing by professional testing agencies. The test report shows that the air quality in the main indoor activity areas complies with the national indoor air quality standard GB/T18883.
A safe environment will ensure the best education for our students. Every ingenious design, daily management, and security guarantee have laid a solid foundation for the continuous development of NACIS. Please click here to check our official website for the latest news.
