In addition, the student council is responsible for maintaining discipline and ensuring school policies run effectively and smoothly amongst the student body, for example, the Anti-Bullying Policy. The council also promotes and encourages the involvement of students in organizing school activities and the monthly newsletter.
At New World International School, we nurture an inclusive atmosphere and a strong community spirit through the House System, to which all pupils from Grade 1 to Grade 12 belong. Students across the school collect house points which contribute to the grand House total. House Points are awarded by all teachers for merits such as effort, achievement, good behavior, excellence and sportsmanship.
The houses are as follows:
Topaz – Yellow
Ruby – Red
Emerald – Green
Sapphire - Blue
The school follows a systematic mentoring system as a way of lending extra support to our students by outside-the-classroom interactions, tutoring, skills training and listening to their perspectives and creating a sense of belonging. Over time, the school mentoring programme has proved successful in bringing positive changes in the holistic development of the students. NWIS mentors also help pupils to overcome behavioural, social or emotional problems that are affecting their learning.
NWIS counsellors serve a vital role in maximizing student success by facilitating healing through a process of genuine dialogue with them .They help all students in the areas of academic achievement and personal/social development ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. Our school counsellor is able to understand, respect and work within the framework of the student’s world rather than forcing the students to fit into their values. By moulding thoughtful, empathetic, and forward thinking in students, we provide them with a greater opportunity for success in all walks of life. Counsellors maintain a close working relationship with the teachers, and administration to provide a more vivid picture of each student’s strengths and areas of improvement.
