Circle of Friends @Ningbo International School ( NBIS) Established January 2018 for Year 3 boy, R. Children named circle ‘Magical Friends’ and have met weekly on Friday lunchtimes. The children have tried really hard to keep to the strategies they decided on to help R and have become very good at noticing R’s positive behaviours. We have talked about a plan to close the circle before the end of term so that it doesn’t just fade away because of the holidays.
