I had a fascinating and productive weekend in Hong Kong last week with leaders from other FOBISIA schools. The focus was on the power of coaching, and how instilling a coaching culture within an institution reaps enormous benefits in terms of results. It was timely, then, that Clive Leach visited us on Tuesday this week to spend the day working with our sixth form and with a large number of parents and families that evening.

Clubs have also started and it’s great to see nearly all secondary students signed up to at least one after-school activity. There are a few, however, who have still not committed to a club, so please encourage your child to find something that interests them from the vast range available, and see Ms Tuoc as soon as possible.
On Wednesday, we had the honour of receiving as our guest Professor Rebecca Lee from Hong Kong. She spoke to all of secondary as well as years 4-6 in primary and many parents and other guests throughout a very busy day.
Dr. Lee inspires BVIS students and parents
Taking care of our environment, of course, absolutely vital and can start with things as simple as switching lights off or reusing water bottles. But Dr Lee’s message was more than that: it’s easy to do the little things, and think we’ve done enough; it’s much harder to thing bigger and try to make a greater impact. Annie did that this week, in organising Dr Lee’s visits. It took perseverance, care of the environment, and an extremely enquiring mind, all core values of the school.
So with Dr Lee’s visit fresh in our minds, think over the weekend what you could do to make a difference.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Key Stage 4/5 Coffee Morning
Thank you to all of you who came along to the coffee morning on Wednesday. After sitting in on our special assembly with Dr Lee, parents were able to ask questions to Mr Lowry and Mr Reid about the curriculum in key stages 4 and 5, as well as university entries.
Years 10 to 13 are the final run in before university, and your children have some vital studies and exams over the next few years. Your support and understanding of their studies is so important if they are to achieve to their full potential.
If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to email Mr Lowry at firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com Mr Reid at firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com
