Message from the Principal

There are many times in our lives when we have to make decisions. As simple human beings, when faced with numerous choices, it can often feel overwhelming. The plain truth is that we seek out opportunities that give us choices. There is joy in making choices, such as going to restaurants, perusing menus, and taking time to decide on a nice evening meal with family. However, when confronted with these choices, we often find ourselves in a dilemma. Will I make the right choice? Will I have food envy when it arrives at our table? When decisions hold more weight, there is also stress and anxiety that come with making choices.

Message from the Head of Secondary

On the 16th January 1897, John Dewey published an article called ‘My Pedagogic Creed’ which marked the beginning of a long and incredibly important body of work for a man whose ideas about education and its purpose remain as relevant today as they were 127 years ago.  John Dewey worked as a classroom teacher for a few years before entering academia to embark on a career of studying education, considering its purpose and making recommendations to various government bodies on how to organise education for young people.

Mastering the Art of Revision

BIS Abu Dhabi Launches A Guide to Effective Revision

At The British International School Abu Dhabi (BIS Abu Dhabi), our passion for learning goes beyond the classroom walls, it’s the driving force behind everything we do. I became a teacher, because I loved learning in my own school days, and I continue to aspire to be a lifelong learner. My goal is to instil this passion in my students, empowering them to become independent and self-driven learners.

From Internship to Impact
Meet Diana Vasile, a dynamic Year 11 student whose educational journey transcends the conventional boundaries of textbooks and classrooms. Introduced to the captivating world of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) during a week of work experience in Year 10, Diana's exploration was ignited by the guidance of Ms. Juett, Assistant Head of Secondary, and the encouragement of Dr. Haïfa Ben-Romdhane, a Professor in Environmental Engineering and Geomatics at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi. This encounter blossomed into a further remarkable four-month project, culminating in the creation of a compelling StoryMap that intricately weaves together environmental narratives using GIS technology.

Our Head of Secondary Chris Lowe gives his insight into Knowledge is Power

Sometime in the late 1990’s I walked into a café in Birmingham and said hello to a student of mine who happened to be there enjoying lunch with her family.  Mum and Dad smiled at me, said hello and I overheard the girl whisper ‘that’s my History teacher’ to them.  I’ve always quite enjoyed the minor celebrity status of being a teacher out of the school building.  Students are often very confused by the notion that teachers exist outside of the classroom.  A while later, as the family left the café, the father gave me a nod, smiled and said

‘‘History teacher eh?  What year was the Battle of Waterloo then?’’
