As you know we take the safety of your children very seriously. We are always seeking ways to further improve and educate ourselves on key safety issues in education. Recently, we invited Mr Jonathan Taylor in to talk to the community about online safety. Last week, seven members of our staff including Ms Rosy and Mr Rudin attended a conference at BIS focused on child protection and safeguarding of students in schools. They spent three days listening to some expert advice from the UK and from other international schools. They also had an opportunity to discuss current good practice with some of the best schools in the region. We will use this important information to further enhance our child protection and safeguarding procedures her at BVIS. I would like to thank those staff for giving up much of their time to attend this very important conference.
One of our most exciting collaborations is with Juilliard. As part of this collaboration world class musicians visit the school during the year to work with children and perform for the school. Today we were delighted to host two world class musicians Dr Kimberly Patterson and Dr Patrick Sutton who wowed our students and staff today with their amazing musical talent. It was truly inspirational and a great day was had by all involved.
As we race towards the end of a very busy and exciting term there are still many events to look forward to. I would like to remind you of our annual ‘Christmas Delights’ morning that is taking place on 9th December. This has proven to be an increasingly popular event with some great games, fantastic food and some wonderful student performances. Please see below for further details. For the safety and enjoyment, this is a ticket only event and no-one will be admitted on the day without a ticket; so please ensure that you book your ticket in advance.
I wish you all a very relaxing weekend.
