As per usual, a new academic year at NLCS Dubai means an expansion of the School as we welcome many new students into our learning community. One of the ways in which we ensure they feel part of NLCS Dubai as quickly as possible is via the House system. In the Senior School, we added an additional form to each House this year meaning many existing students moved within their Houses but more importantly, we were able to place our new North Londoners into forms where they could assimilate and form relationships effectively not only with students in their own grades but also create friendships within the vertical form system we have found to be so impactful.
The House system allows every student to feel part of something very special whether that is being a member of a close-knit House community, representing their House in competitions or trying themselves out with something new.
After last years’ tied House Competition between Yibir and Jais, all Houses returned with a renewed vigour to do their best in all competitions. We have had the House Quiz, House Debating, House Football, House Photography and to end the term, House Music.
The House Quiz, as ever, is a challenging yet fun event in which students from all grades pit their knowledge against each other either individually or as a team. The 2019 questions were challenging as usual but our students did a wonderful job of remaining calm under pressure and astounding the audience with their knowledge on such subjects as musical theory, scientific discoveries and even the size of sports balls! Jais emerged victorious starting the year with a well-deserved victory.
