As part of the Nord Anglia Big Challenge we had to submit a written and video representation of our Make It Right project to date. We are delighted to announce that our project, our work in school and in the local community to raise awareness of the UNCRC and our work at Kramare Children’s Hospital, has been judged by both Nord Anglia and our Big Challenge Partners Oxfam, to be the winning project in the ‘Biggest Impact’ category. This is a tremendous achievement for our students who have worked so well together to develop their ideas. This award recognises the fact that our students’ projects have truly made a difference in not just raising awareness of the UNCRC but in developing a project which will truly benefit hundreds of children a year in hospital.

Kramare Project Update
We remain committed to continuing our fundraising towards providing a therapeutic play room in the Orthopaedic Ward at the Children’s Hospital. We are delighted to announce we have now raised 8.000 euros towards our total. Secondary students are able to purchase our unique Global Classroom t-shirts every Wednesday-Friday in school for the bargain price of 10 euro. All profits generated go towards our Kramare project. They are allowed to wear these
t-shirts every Friday for the rest of the school year instead of the normal shirt and tie. We will have further fundraising initiatives this term, including the sale of playing cards designed and produced by Primary students on the UNCRC. Thank you for your continued support.
We are delighted to be able to announce the names of the three students from our School who will participate in the first Nord Anglia Education Global Orchestra Summer School in conjunction with the world renowned Juillard School in New York (http://www.juilliard.edu/). This event will take place from 24 June – 1 July 2015. The Global Orchestra will be made up of students selected from our extensive family of schools (a maximum of 3 students per school). Auditions were held at BISB on Friday 13 March with students from both Primary and Secondary taking part. From these auditions a short list of 5 students was prepared and videos of their performances were submitted to the judges. The successful BISB students were Hoda Jahanpour (Year 10) who will take on the prestigious role of Principal Cellist for the Orchestra; Jason Wang (Year 11) who will play Oboe; and Minkyoung Jenny Choi (Year 9), who plays violin.
We are delighted that our students have this amazing opportunity to participate in the Global Orchestra and look forward to sharing their adventures with you later in the term.
Round 3 of the team-based Debate League kicks off next week. The motions up for debate are:
Politics Should Be Taught In School (Primary League)
Anybody Could Become Leader Of Their Country (Lower Secondary)
Voting Should Be Mandatory (Upper Secondary)
Our teams continue to do well across the three Leagues and we look forward to seeing their continued participation and development as debaters. As always, you can see the full fixture lists by logging onto the Global Classroom via our School Moodle.
We would like to congratulate Jacob Cox, our Student Voice Leader Jiwon Rachel Han, Kristina Rollova and Sarah Doehring who have been recognized for the Great Posts they have contributed to the online Global Classroom community this year. 14 students in total from our family of schools are currently recognised in this way, and we are proud that 4 of the 14 are from our School.
The Ultimate Reading List video can be viewed here https://vimeo.com/125704427 showing the results of our student voting from earlier this year.
