Emergency Network System
The safety of our children is the highest priority for us at JNY.
The whole school is linked via an emergency chain so that alerts can be sent instantly. Children rehearse emergency drills – fire, earthquake and lockdown – regularly with their Form Tutors so that all are well prepared to meet a contingency.
Monitoring Students’ Temperature
The health of every student is important. A teacher on duty checks the students’ temperatures as they arrive in school. Those found feverish are isolated and sent to the clinic; parents are then requested to take them home.
When an epidemic breaks out, the school nurse is on standby to monitor students as they enter school.
SAGE, an acronym for Special Apple Group of Educators, was born in November 2014 when nine tech-savvy teachers from various subject departments underwent a three-day exhaustive training by Apple. The SAGEs explore how Apple technology can be put to optimum use in the teaching and learning process. They usually meet and train teachers.
HSK @ JNY
HSK is a standardised international Chinese proficiency test used to assess first language competency in Mandarin. JNY is proud to be the only test centre for this examination in the Tangerang area. To date we have successfully held four sessions of HSK Examination since March 2013 and our JNY students have consistently achieved a high passing rate of more than 95% in every examination.
English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Department
Those students who enrol without a strong foundation in English can avail the EFL classes to learn language and strategies specific to understanding all academic subjects. They are carefully screened using the WIDA MODEL testing – a well researched system developed in the United States that identifies a student’s language needs. Based on the results, a specialist EFL teacher customises materials suited to the student’s individual language needs.
South East Asia Strategic Educational Alliance (SEA2)
The formation of the South East Asia Strategic Educational Alliance (SEA2) is the brainchild of the Nanyang Girls’ High School (NYGH), targeting ten established schools in South East Asia (Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, The Philippines, Thailand and Brunei). JNY is very honoured to be invited as one of the founding members of the alliance.
Given the culturally diverse nature of the region, an alliance aims to bring schools from different South East Asian countries together to enrich cross-cultural learning of the students, bringing the youths to learn and work collaboratively.
Digital Studies @ JNY
Due to the demand these days of digital literacy, we want all our students to become competent basic users of ICT technologies so they will be successful in their academic and work careers.
While the emphasis in the primary section is on the basics, at the Secondary level students may choose from the Cambridge subjects – Information and Communication Technology for IGCSE and Applied Information and Communication Technology for AS / A Levels.
