Equipment Expectations

Equipment List

Each student at NMS is expected to carry the following equipment. This is to ensure maximum learning time in lessons.
  • 30cm clear pencil case
  • 3 black pens
  • 2 purple pens
  • 3 pencils
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Eraser
  • Clear 30cm ruler
  • Highlighter
  • Protractor
  • Metal safety compass
  • Glue stick
  • Casio fx-83GT X or Casio FX-83GT PLUS scientific calculator

Equipment should be carried in bags, and it is checked at multiple points during the day.

As part of the "5 Rs health check" section of tutorial time, student leaders check equipment of all form members daily. They inform the tutor who will issue a C2 - Resourceful if equipment is not complete. In lessons, if student does not have a piece of equipment needed for the lesson the teacher will issue a C2 - Resourceful. This is to ensure every possible minute of lessons is used for learning rather than the distribution/collection of equipment.
