Our Principal Writes: Much to Celebrate and Enjoy

26 September 2014

The start of any school year is a triumph of planning, preparation and a great deal of hard work. It takes a lot of effort to get all of the systems up and running that allow the school and the students within it to flourish and operate at their best.

No large organisation however slick, can expect to perform without a hitch and not surprisingly a school, with all of the people and moving parts involved, is no exception. Having said that it has been a very good start to the academic year.

We have delivered on our promise of a warm welcome individually and collectively through PTA and school events and through our day to day interactions and numerous small acts of kindness and consideration. The PTA Welcome Back Party was a fine way to complete the early part of the year. It was much enjoyed and the atmosphere spoke volumes about the success of our school as a community hub.

We have also enjoyed a wide variety of exciting educational experiences, both inside and outside the classroom. It was particularly heart-warming to see the wonderful school wide response to the appeal for musicians of all ages to join in the first of the events marking the Tenth Anniversary, the Ten Hours of Music. It was a day rich with all sorts of musical experiences and performances led by the music staff, it was great to see the primary students arrive and be drawn into The Gallery by the various musical performances taking place at that time.

The hard work required to produce the academic achievements that are the third of our promises is already underway and the trackers and settling in reports you have all just received, along with a couple of student teacher parent conferences, have started the important on going partnership between home and school.

On the sports front our BISS Lions teams have also made a good start with some impressive performances and high percentage of wins against some very stiff opposition. The success of our volleyball teams is testimony to the hard work by students and staff over the last few seasons. Our volleyball teams now perform as strongly as the other teams do in major sports. Equally the rugby, a sport in which we have enjoyed a good deal of success over recent years, has also delivered some impressive performances so far this season.

There has been much to celebrate and enjoy. I hope you all have a happy and healthy Golden Week break.

- Kevin Foyle, Principal
