Dear Parents,

Last weekend, I felt privileged to be one of five members of our BIS staff who travelled to Regents Pattaya, one of our Nord Anglia Education schools, for our Regional South East Asia Conference. The theme of the conference was Making Connections. We now have twelve Nord Anglia Education schools in the region as we have recently welcomed new schools in Kuala Lumpur, Yangon and Manila. Getting to know about different schools, sharing ideas and learning about new initiatives is always thought-provoking and this conference was no exception.

Creative Learning Environments for the 21st Century

As well as learning from others, BIS staff were able to share innovative ideas. Steve Labelle and Diane Vaughan presented on one of our current whole school initiatives which involves looking at how we plan to prepare students for the 21st Century. Starting with our new curriculum in Computer Science and the desired outcomes of producing young learners who are able to problem solve, work collaboratively and creatively with a range of technologies, we are in the process of re-thinking our learning environment. Confining students to rectangular classrooms with fixed seating and desks is not conducive to collaboration and allows minimal flexibility. A whole school development team, led by Martin Toner in the IT department has produced an innovative, creative plan which will be rolled out over the coming year.

Phase 1 of the plan will be a redesign of our library. We aspire to create a learning hub with imaginative learning areas to satisfy a range of learning styles. Researching takes many forms and our librarian Ms. Hull is not only passionate about books but also technology. The new environment will have collaborative areas where small presentations can take place, individual study areas, a range of seating both at study desks and more relaxed soft couches and facilitate different technologies. Our first visible step forward in creating our desired outcome will take place over the next holiday, in April. Parents will be invited in to find out about the new environment first-hand. This will take place in Term 3.

Secondary Students Out and About

I would like to congratulate all the secondary students who have been fabulous ambassadors in recent FOBISIA and Nord Anglia events. The Under 13 FOBISIA event in Phuket proved to be tremendously successful for our talented athletes. Students returned with a plethora of medals and were particularly successful in all their team events e.g. Football and Basketball.

The 2 recent MUN (Model United Nations) events held in Northbridge, Cambodia and UNIS Hanoi gave our students the chance to develop a range of debating and public speaking skills. These are wonderful opportunities for participants to work collaboratively and develop skills of empathy, diplomacy and negotiation.

BIS Hanoi Secondary

A further BIS team are attending a FOBISIA Maths competition in Shanghai. I look forward to hearing all about the event on Monday when they return.
