My name is Laura O’Shea. I come from Ireland. I teach Business and Economics and French at the senior school at NZIS. I studied Economics and French in Trinity College Dublin, and I got an MSc from LSE in Economic History – including Business History and Capital Markets History. That was a great experience. After, I was accepted into Bank of Ireland Treasury to train in their dealing room. I did that for nearly two years, before deciding to become a teacher of my subjects at second level. I’ve worked in Dublin schools and in schools in the south of England. This job was a real surprise offer and, in December in Ireland, I did a lengthy SWOT analysis..... and it came out as a yes! I’ve been here for two years now, am so happy here with lots of new friends. I love teaching my subjects and having my form class 9LO. NZIS Sports Day Action Photos Early Years & Primary Campus: Jl. Kemang Selatan I #1A Kemang, Jakarta 62.21 7183222 [email protected] Secondary Campus: Jl. Kemang Raya #70 Kemang, Jakarta 62.21 7183111 www.nzis.net Dear Greenpeace, Last night I found a dolphin in my swimming pool. Can you please give me some information about dolphins because I think he’s lost? Also I want to say that dolphins live in groups called pods so what is he doing in my swimming pool? I want to know how do dolphins sleep and how do they find their way when they are lost? And I also know that they eat fish, squid and shellfish. Yours sincerely Audrey Sports Day was a great end to last week and I was especially proud of the senior students who competed with plenty of enthusiasm and effort. There were new records created in both the swimming and Sprints and overall congratulations must go to Taniwha and their ins pired leaders Pretty and Eunice. The staff gained a measure of revenge by winning the swimming relay but bowed to the speed of the seniors in the sprints. However the students were lucky the staff team wasn’t made up of four Miss Stacey’s, as she finished powerfully to secure a very credible 2nd placing…well done Miss. We await with interest our next battle…. Reminder in Secondary about our uniform – sports shoes must have only black or white laces please – no coloured laces. Also only plain white T shirts are to be worn under NZIS school shirts but students may wear their house sports shirts during breaks while playing sports. After lunch time, we have hygiene issues with many of the boys. Please encourage your son to shower after physical activity as they often enter classes still sweating profusely. It is not pleasant for teachers or their fellow students. As a result we have made two bells at lunchtime to allow them time to shower. Any assistance from parents would be appreciated. Ruiri (Year 9) is modeling our new proposed hooded sweatshirt for all Year 11 to Primary students at NZIS. Molly (Year 12) is wearing the new Seniors Jacket for Year 12 – 13 students. The idea was promoted by our Head Girl Eunice Wangu and has been developed and endorsed by the Secondary students and staff. A final design is near completion and ordering and costs will be available very soon. Finally Thursday is another big day for us in Secondary, with the official opening of B Block and our Options Evening. B Block is a great addition to the section and we will look to improve and make the most of these new facilities. Our Options night is also very important as it is our first real step towards changing and solidifying our academic subject choices and opportunities. I look forward to your participation as parents to this event.
