We Need The Magic
I have just spent a very enjoyable hour watching a film made by our wonderful music teacher, Ms Bechara, of the Key Stage 1 entrants in BCB’s Got Talent. This is always a highlight in school as we watch our students take the stage and show us something special, something different and often something magical. Obviously this year it has been somewhat different, using the magic of IT rather than the magic of the theatre to exhibit their talents, nonetheless, the effort and dedication can be clearly seen and the emotion I felt watching them was one of inspiration and joy.

Head of Primary Blog - The Word Rich Get Richer, But The Word Poor Get Poorer
Last week I have been talking with our teachers about the power of vocabulary, about how we can help our students increase their vocabulary in order to be able to express themselves in the best way possible. As children grow and develop they also need to be able to describe every picture they see, to write about their lives, read about their lived reality and to speak into their lives their very hopes and dreams.

Head of Secondary Blog - Secondary School Student Leadership Roars Ahead!
I wrote briefly in my blog on the 30th August about student leadership and it is safe to say that ́student leadership becomes the topic on everyone's lips here at BCB. The act of leadership is a personal journey that involves bringing ourselves to our leadership experiences, development and learning (Haber - Curran; Tillapaugh, 2017) . One example of student leadership at BCB is the ́new ́ house captains. This year we have four cats; lions, tigers, panthers and jaguars. Student involvement in this initiative will inevitably strengthen an already tangible connection between pupils and the school ́.

Head of Secondary Blog - 6th October 2019
What an amazing Arts Week it has been with the department organizing an array of different activities ranging from Rock ´n Roll to Fashion, Hip Hop to the OPUS woodwind group. The week began with an introduction to the clarinet, oboe, bassoon and flute.....all sounding amazing but my favorite is the Bassoon, what a beautifully deep, rich sound!!! Highlighting just why the arts are important was the theme of the three days and ended with me sharing my perspective on the arts and my journey. Nord Anglia Education has an exclusive partnership with Juilliard which delights me because I am an avid admirer of the arts. People who know me are aware that I was a keen footballer and now a coach but did you know that I was a ballet dancer until my later teenage years. Whilst I was listening to Ms Baldwin speak about the importance of the arts and the journey they can take you on, a journey of personal exploration, I fondly recalled my days on the stage.
