Several of our Secondary School students kept the audience enthralled and entertained for 90 minutes at the Drama and Poetry evening. The three actors from the Drama ECA enacted short plays and monologues while Grade 8 and Grade 9 students read poems by Shane Koyczan and Edgar Allan Poe.  The actors and poets made excellent use of space as well as of their voices and body language, and the acting skills were impressive.  Thank you to the students who helped with lighting and backstage, to the English teachers Ms. Jane and Ms. Confait, to our support staff and to Mr. Ashworth who was responsible for the organisation of the event.  Special thanks to Mr. Michel Leroux, the Play Director who has been leading the Drama ECA.  We also appreciate the support of the parents and of the audience.  What a talented group of students we have at BIS!

Ms. Mary

PYP Moving-up Day is an opportunity for the students to spend part of a morning in next year’s class and to meet the teacher. Students found out about their learning environment next year and asked questions about the programme. Several students who will be joining BIS for the next academic year also attended.  On the same day there was a Grade 6 and 7 additional languages information session for Grade 5 and Grade 6 students and parents. This was held to help students make informed choices about their additional language in Secondary School.

Thank you to all involved in this year’s Moving-up Day.

Ms. Mary

Everyone who attended the FoBIS brunch on Tuesday at Buttercup, Four Points Sheraton enjoyed the good company, good food and beautiful surroundings. It was a chance for this year’s leadership team to celebrate their achievements and to talk to friends about their plans for the coming weeks. Mr. Brookes and I were also very grateful to be given gifts.  Thank you very much for your generosity!

Soon the leadership team will be ready to hand over the reins to next year’s committee who we know will receive wonderful support from our parent community.  Well done, FoBIS!

Many thanks to everyone in FoBIS for your hard work which has helped to create such a memorable learning experience for our students.

Ms. Mary

I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to meet Evelyn Kho at Les Roches Hospitality Management School. Evelyn is finishing her first year there. It is situated in the beauty of the Swiss Alps and Les Roches has the reputation of one of the best Hospitality schools in the world. Evelyn is fortunate to study there and she is doing well.
