CEESA HS Friendly Tournament in Belgrade

1/30/2014

The SuperNOVAs gladly accepted the invitation to participate in the friendly tournament organized by the International School of Belgrade (ISB). Our students played a total of five games, winning three of them (two against ISB Belgrade and one against ISB Bucharest), losing on from ISB Belgrade with only a 2 points margin, resulting from points scored in the last seconds of the game, and in a very dramatic finish, tying against ISB Bucharest. Besides participating in the tournament our SuperNOVAs had a chance to do a bit of Belgrade sightseeing and shopping. Coaches were pleased by the student’s level of play, enthusiasm, and dedication. Host families also expressed their satisfaction with the behavior, and respectfulness of students. Overall this was an excellent tournament that brought coaches and players together preparing them for the challenges ahead, most importantly the CEESA HS Boys Basketball Tournament in March, where they’ll be welcoming teams from the CEESA region as hosts.

"Matilda/Michael Jackson"

12/23/2013

"Matilda” In their pristinely chaste and depravity-proof state of mind and heart, the young ones can provide the most insightful truths about life. Matilda is a larger-than-life story whose eponymous character is a child prodigy misplaced in a low-brow, unscrupulous, and neglectful family. Matilda, an avid reader of books, looks forward to going to school, but, alas, the school is run by a principle who is nothing short of a bully. Stranded in a world of dishonest and beguiling adults, Matilda does not give up: powered by the force of books, this enlightened young girl sets off to redress the injustices adults are so prone to incur. There is a lesson to learn: Once in a while, we ought to take another, fresh look at the world through the eyes of children. “A tribute to Michael Jackson” There was a very young boy who liked nothing more than to dance and sing, and that is what his did his whole life with unmatched beauty and grace. What he did was so thrilling that soon he was dubbed the King of Pop. These 12 songs are a small homage to a musical legend, Michael Jackson, whose musical legacy has more than marked one era.

International Model European Parliament Session 2013

12/12/2013

From November 30th – December 7th the International Model European Parliament session took place in Vilnius, Lithuania. The international session brought together more than 200 students from 30 European countries for a weeklong event that simulates the work of the European Parliament. The Model European Parliament program from Macedonia had five delegates present and participating in the event as a result of their accomplishment on the national MEP simulation that took place this October. As representatives of the Macedonian delegation we had students from five different high schools. Our delegates were participating in the work of different Committees. Namely our delegation was composed from: § Gligor Micajkov, Josip Broz Tito high school (Head of delegation) o Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs § Mila Georgievska, NOVA International Schools o Committee on Development § Antonija Grncharovska, Georgi Dimitrov high school o Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs § Teodora Angelevska, Orce Nikolov high school o Committee on Culture and Education § Boban Sugareski, Nikola Karev high school                      o Committee on Foreign Affairs The delegates worked in the Committees and drafted resolutions to tackle EU current problems and challenges and they presented their work in front of each other at the GA sessions. The GA sessions were held in the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania (Lithuanian Parliament), while the venue for the Committee meetings was in different Lithuanian ministries. During the session, delegates learned a lot about the European Union by simulating the work of European MP-s and from the speeches and lectures that were made possible for them. The students also had a chance to learn about the local culture through field trips, visiting institutions and most importantly spending an entire week with a Lithuanian family in their homes. For this great experience we have to thank our lovely Lithuanian hosts, the Model European Parliament Foundation. NOVA will continue to fund and support the Macedonian MEP office and National Sessions, due to their focus on promoting a civil society and EU institutional awareness amongst high school students.

The worried parents announced that whoever made the princess smile would win her hand in marriage.Soon jesters, magicians, and performers of all kinds did their best to make the princess happy. The royal court was amazed by their performances, but the princess never smiled.One day a shy courtier who worked hard to serve his princess was carrying out his duties. What happened next changed his life and the life of the princess forever. Suddenly laughter echoed throughout the castle – could that be a smile upon the beautiful princess’s face?

NOVA hosts Global Connections XVI

12/5/2013

After extraordinary seminars in the past five years in Thailand, Jordan, South Africa and Botswana, New Zealand and Colombia, this year’s Global Connections XVI will be held in Macedonia, Northern Greece and Cyprus. NOVA has the honor of hosting the latest gathering of world recognized educational institutions, under the leadership of Viktor Novakovski, Deputy Head of School. Besides a visit to Macedonia and NOVA International Schools, participants will be introduced and have a chance to spend time in schools in Northern Greece and Cyprus. The catalyst for the creation of the Global Connections Seminar were Heads of Schools, representatives of The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS) and the Federation of American and International Schools (FAIS), under the guidance of Peter D. Pelham, founding director of Pelham Associates, an educational advising group in Maryland. The first Global Connections was hosted in Botswana, and the last in Columbia. At the heart of the Global Connections Seminar is the belief that by gathering a diverse group of educators from around the world, each participant will often be exposed to educational initiatives beyond their own country's efforts. For more information on the seminar, vista the following link: http://www.globalconnections.org/news_and_initiatives/GCSeminarXVI.aspx

11/25/2013

Since the beginning of the academic year, Nova students, members of the Red Cross Group part of the Community Service Program, have visited the Red Cross shelter for homeless people in order to volunteer, donate resources, and try to make a difference in the community. The program has grown in scope with students gathering food, donating clothes and spending time with the homeless, while trying to understand how difficult life is for them. Their participation has triggered some students to take further action themselves and work hard on organizing additional food drives. The most successful one comes from two outstanding students Nikolaos Theodosiadis and Sofija Paneva, who in cooperation with the VERO  chain of supermarkets,  made it possible to deliver a truck load of food to the Red Cross shelter for homeless people.

Hands On Student Involvement Conference 2013

11/20/2013

NOVA International Schools had the honor of hosting the annual Central and Eastern European School Association Hands On Student Involvement Conference for 2013. Eight different international schools, each with 6-10 participants took part in this conference, the topic of which was "Modern Society." NOVA's students had four presentations on communication, youth activism, social justice and human rights in the modern world. Not only did NOVA students present, but also, our students had the privilege and responsibility of organizing the entire conference. As the name suggests, the goal of the conference is to involve the students entirely, so they were required to take full responsibility and organize the conference from scratch. The team was composed of more than fifteen NOVA students, with Nikola Danev as the student-leader/organizer, Gjentil Abazi as organizational head, Donna Urdinov and Vladimir Maksimovic as Media heads and Petar Pesev as the head of IT. Presentations were held by: Jana Cholakovska, Donna Urdinov, Mila Georgievska, Emilija Tashevska, Ana Arsovska, Gabriela Milkova, Simona Sarafinovska and others. All of the organizers and presenters were supervised by Mr. Aleksandar Ristovski, Ms. Melissa Mitreski and Ms. Bela Gligorova, who generously devoted their time to the conference. The NOVA HOSIC team would like to thank the NOVA administration, cafeteria, teachers, staff and students for their support of the conference and for the undying enthusiasm. We also wish the best of luck to our colleagues in AIS Vienna who will host the next HOSIC in 2014.

CEESA High School Boys Soccer Tournament in Riga

11/13/2013

The tournament was a great experience and a first for many of our NOVA HS students. Team spirit was at an all time high, leading certain team players to believe NOVA would easily win the tournament trophy. Riga’s weather conditions were quite less hospitable then Skopje’s and this dampened the performance of most of NOVA’s players.The first game was against the International School of Belgrade. A poor start with lots of errors lead to a score of 5 to 1 for ISB. After the game a considerable disappointment was seen in the team, but coaches were able to bring back the team spirit, which resulted in a positive outcome in the follow up game against the International School of Krakow. NOVA won 3:1.NOVA was able to open the second day of the tournament with a tie, with now tournament champions the International School of Latvia. Although NOVA held the lead for most of the game, it unfortunately conceded a goal in the last moments of the second half. The following game was a heavily contested affair, with the International School of Helsinki winning the game through a late minute penalty kick.Weather conditions only worsened for the last days of competitions. However, NOVA players were unhampered in their ambition to return home with a medal. They won their first game against Pechersk International School of Kiev (PSI) by 3:1 and qualified to play for the 3rd place spot. Boys were in excellent mental state after having won their first game, bringing a lot of positive energy on the pitch and dominating the game for long stretches of time. The game finished 2:0 and the NOVA team was able to return with the bronze medal. Besides winning a medal, three of our players were selected in the All Tournament Team for their exceptional play and energy given on the soccer pitch (Kristopher Blazevski, Stojan Pandov, and Alejandro Rafael Erazo Amaya).Throughout the tournament NOVA students were friendly and cordiall to all competiting teams, and by the end they were functioning as a homogenous professional soccer team. We look forward to next year’s tournament and a chance to showcase our growth in the course of this year.

PTA Room Parents

11/4/2013

Dear Parents,  One very valuable way you can support your child in school is by becoming a Room Parent. Every homeroom teacher needs one or two parents who will help them throughout the year. It is also a great way to get to know your child’s friends and their parents. Here is what a Room Parent does: 1.       Help out at class parties or other activities in the classroom. 2.       Help with fieldtrips. 3.       Communicate PTA information with other parents in your child’s class. 4.       Help coordinate the one Bake Sale sponsored by your child’s grade. You don’t need any experience or special skills, just a desire to get involved and help out. The homeroom teacher or our Elementary PTA Coordinator, Jennifer Mathews, will let you know what to do. If you are interested, please let your homeroom teacher know, or contact Jennifer Mathews: Jennifer.Mathews@cru.org.  We will all be very grateful for your time and effort, and the rewards are wonderful! Sincerely, Brian Richards, PTA Chairperson Cindy Gold, M. Ed, Elementary Principal
